Amman and Ramallah in the same boat

Apr 02,2022 - Last updated at Apr 02,2022

Ad-Dustour's Daniela Quran said that one phrase can summarize the outcomes of the recent short visit of His Majesty King Abdullah and HRH Crown Prince Hussein to Ramallah, the political capital of the Palestinian National Authority, where His Majesty stressed that Jordan will always support Palestinians, saying: "We are closest to each other and we are in the same boat".

The visit was paid in conjunction with accelerating political developments, including several meetings in Sharm Al Sheikh, Aqaba and Naqab, the repercussions of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and its impact on the international food security, indications to sign a new deal with Iran, and the Houthi escalations in the war against Saudi Arabia, said the writer.

Jordan sensed lukewarm stances of US efforts seeking the resumption of Palestinian-Israeli negotiations, where the Israeli media took advantage of Washington's shifting of attention to the crisis with Russia and accelerating normalization ties Arab countries, added the columnist.

The timing of the visit aimed at delivering a message that Jordan will always have successful relations with Palestine and that the Kingdom will always look at the Palestinian issue as a permanent priority over other regional causes.
