Jordan employs high-level diplomacy

Ad-Dustour’s Hamadah Faraneh said that Jordan, thanks to its wise diplomacy and policy, managed to throw the ball to Israel’s field through refusing the occupation’s government invitation to attend a six-sided ministerial meeting on Monday in Naqab, and at the same time accepting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbass’s invitation to visit Palestine.

His Majesty King Abdullah, HRH Crown Prince Hussein, the prime minister, foreign minister and director of the General Intelligence Directorate visited Ramallah on the same day, where the visit sent a Jordanian message and achieved its goal that is completely biased to Palestinians in the face of extremist policies of the Israeli government, said the writer.

Jordan benefited from two additional factors that provided extra momentum to achieve its demands, the first is being the US attention, which prioritized the Ukrainian crisis, especially that Washington pressures the Israeli government to ensure calmness prior to Ramadan, added the columnist.

The second is the qualitative operations against Israelis in Naqab and Khdira that raised Israel’s worries and made them look for help, which made the Israeli president and defence minister to visit Jordan. 

The Israeli defence minister listened clearly to the Jordanian stance that was delivered to him personally by His Majesty who reiterated that maintaining calm requires respecting the rights of Muslims to worship at Al Aqsa Mosque/Al Haram Al Sharif, removing any impediments that prevent them from praying there, and stopping provocations that could lead to escalation,” added the writer.
