TEHRAN (Petra) ? Jordan and Iran agreed to upgrade their joint panel to become a 'higher committee,' chaired by Prime Minister Faisal Fayez and Iranian Vice President Mohammad Aref Reza.

Fayez made the announcement on Tuesday after he was received by Iranian President Mohammad Khatami.

During the meeting, the premier stressed the Kingdom's keenness on strengthening its ties with Iran. Fayez, who arrived home later in the day, pointed out that the progress made at the political level has paid off in other fields, citing eight memoranda of understanding the two sides signed Monday on economic, scientific and cultural cooperation.

The premier's talks with President Khatami also covered regional issues. On Palestine, Fayez highlighted Jordan's continued support for the Palestinian cause and the Palestinians' pursuit of their legitimate rights, particularly their right to return and compensation, and to establish their independent viable state after full Israeli withdrawal from lands occupied in 1967.
