President Isaac Herzog writes to Jordan’s King Abdullah II on the 27th anniversary of the 1994 Israel-Jordan peace treaty.

“Twenty-seven years later,” Herzog writes, “the supreme strategic value of peace should be clear to all. Only by deepening and expanding our ties across all levels of government and civil society, and in all fields of cooperation, can we safeguard this indispensable asset of peace.”

Herzog says he looks forward to expanded ties in the fields of agriculture, water, trade, innovation and hi-tech.
