Gabriel’s visit to Amman was at the invitation of her Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi. The Aqaba Process was a key focus of the discussions, not only as a tool to combat terrorism and extremism but also as a means to address hate speech.

Launched in 2015 by King Abdullah II of Jordan, the Aqaba Process is an initiative that involves a series of international meetings aimed at strengthening military and security cooperation, coordination, and the exchange of expertise among regional and international partners to counter terrorism.
