"The meeting between the two ministers came out with full understanding on the launch of the second phase of the dialogue between the two countries," al-Amin said, adding that Sullivan invited Ahmed to visit Washington "at the earliest opportunity."

According to the statement, the meeting touched upon bilateral relations between the two countries and the need to proceed with their development.
