AMMAN —The Council of Ministers has exempted all Jordanians from paying entry fees to tourist and archaeological sites, as of Thursday and until the end of the current month.

Tourism Minister Nayef Al Fayez said the decision coincides with the announcement of the Jordanian Tourism Day, which was marked on Thursday.

It is also in line with the government’s efforts to encourage citizens to visit tourist and archaeological sites, Fayez said, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

GOOD POLICY BUT WE SHOULD NOT FORGET THAT THIS IS YET ANOTHER EVIDENCE OF EXCLUSION AND DISCRIMINATION AGAINST THE CHILDREN OF JORDANIAN WOMEN MARRIED TO NON JORDANIAN MEN. MY IN LAWS HAS FAILED ME AND THE RULES OF HUMAN RIGHTS SPIRIT. I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND HOW A JORDANIAN MAN CAN MARRY AS MANY WIVES AS HE WISHES AND THEIR CHILDREN CAN ENJOY THESE RIGHTS BU MY SON CAN NOT. THIS CLEARLY SHOWS THAT THE SO CALLED UN AND OTHER INTERNATIONAL RULES OF HUMAN RIGHTS ARE JUST IN PAPER AND THE SO CALLED SPONSORS OF THESE USELESS LAWS REMAIN MUTE.
