King Abdullah-II of Jordan paid a brief visit to Pakistan Saturday during which he held wide-ranging discussions on a number of bilateral and regional issues with President Pervez Musharraf and assured his country's continued relief assistance in the wake of last week's devastating earthquake.
King Abdullah-II, for his part, expressed sympathy for the earthquake victims and assured the Pakistani President that Jordanian assistance would be rendered on an ongoing basis as long as it was needed.
The President appreciated the Jordanian Monarch's efforts at projecting the moderate face of Islam within the West by promoting dialogue across different civilizations.
He emphasized that concept of â€œenlightened moderationâ€ enunciated by him at the 10th Organization of Islamic Conferences Summit had the same purpose. Both leaders agreed that such initiatives were necessary to avert the threat of a more serious conflict between the Islamic world and the West.
