The meeting took place at the ministry’s headquarters in Cairo. Al-Assar reviewed the technological capabilities and the defence equipments produced by the ministry’s subsidiaries, including ammunition, equipment, and systems of armament, along with the human capabilities and advanced technological systems on which these industries are based.
Al-Tal praised the ministry’s enormous capabilities and its role in providing the requirements of the armed forces, pointing out the role played by Egypt in the region to confront extremism and terrorism.
He stressed that it is possible for there to be cooperation between Jordanian companies and the Egyptian military’s production companies in several fields for joint military industrialisation, transfer of experience and technology between the two countries, and the vocational and technical training for workers on the latest systems in the industrialisation of the war.
The two sides agreed on the need to activate this cooperation between the Jordanian companies and the companies of the ministry to identify areas of mutual cooperation.
