The Parties noted with satisfaction a considerable increase in number of pilgrims both from the Orthodox Church and other religious denominations due to their successful joint efforts and close cooperation with the Jordan Ministry of Tourism & Antiquities, the Jordan Tourism Board, the Christ’s Baptism Site Complex on the river Jordan, some tourist companies as well as the Dead Sea Coast and the Red Sea Coast Hotels Directorates.

In conclusion of the meeting, on behalf of the Russian-Jordanian Business Council the RJBC Deputy Chairman and Director, Mr. Kononenko, awarded Deputy Head of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in Jerusalem Hieromonch Dometian (Markaryan), with a Medal ‘For Contribution to Development of Economic and Friendly Relations between Russia and Jordan’ for his activities aimed at strengthening of Orthodoxy in the Holy Land, the land of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and his major personal contribution to development of the pilgrimage tourism between Russia, Israel and Jordan.
