YONKERS, NY— June 17, 2018 — The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has withdrawn its ambassador from Iran Al Arabiya asserted, advising they were informed by a Jordanian source that “there is no intention to name another Jordanian envoy in Tehran at this time.”
Jordan will not send a new ambassador to Iran following its “interferences in Arab affairs” and policies “that harm the principle of good neighborliness.”
Jordan engaged the diplomatic conduct as its protest of Iran’s belligerent policies in the region, “interferences in Arab affairs”, and policies “that harm the principle of good neighborliness.”
Jordan’s move reveals the burgeoning schism that divides the Sunni v. Shi’ite conflict. Iran, the al-Assad regime, and Hezbollah on one side, and Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia among other Gulf States on the other.
Israel has increasingly aligned itself with the Sunni world against Iran. The Sunni states have come to accept Israel as in integral asset against Iran from both a military perspective and as advocates on their behalf by way of their lobbyists in America.
Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi stressed that “the security and stability of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is part of the security and stability of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.”
Safari stresses that “Jordan’s position is consistent with the rejection of Iranian interference in the affairs of the countries in the region.”
Iran is involved in several conflicts in the region, including Yemen, where it supports the Iranian backed Houthis, Bahrain, Lebanon, Syria, Gaza, and Iraq.
Morocco recently severed ties with Iran when it had learned that Iran provides funds, weapons, and military training to the Shi’ite led Polisario Front by way of its client and proxy Hezbollah.
The Polisario Front (Polisario), the self-proclaimed “leader” of Sahrawis fighting for independence for the Western Sahara, is in reality a one-party dictatorship that does not represent the Sahrawi people and does not promote their best interests in pursuing a peaceful solution to the Western Sahara conflict. The Polisario has been controlled by the same authoritarian leader, Mohammed Abdelaziz, for more than 30 years and allows no real democratic process.
