​The University of Jordan (UJ) on Wednesday received a delegation representing the Turkish Council of Higher Education (CoHE) and presidents of five Turkish universities and the accompanying delegation.

UJ President Prof. Nathir Obeidat said the university hopes to increase cooperation with Turkish universities in training, research and teaching the Turkish language.
