Muasher: Jordan is leading relentless efforts to stop the war on Gaza
Alanbat - Rahaf Abdullah
Former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Marwan Muasher, said that Jordan has a special status and has invested in its relations with countries of the world over the past decades, and this was evident in the current crisis to stop the aggression against Gaza.
He pointed out that His Majesty King Abdullah II moved immediately and visited 4 European capitals during the ongoing war on Gaza and spoke with US President Joe Biden.
Dr. Muasher added, in an interview on Jordanian television Sunday evening, that His Majesty King Abdullah II has led persistent Jordanian efforts since the beginning of the crisis to stop the war on Gaza, and Jordan had a role in the United Nations General Assembly’s resolution regarding the war on Gaza.
He drew attention to the speech of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, through which she expressed the feelings of every Jordanian and Arab in harmony between the official and popular positions, stressing the necessity of uniting all official and popular efforts in one path to stop the aggression.
Dr. Muasher stressed that the Arab position towards the crisis is not what we would like it to be, and that the Arab countries that should move are not moving as they should, which contributes to giving the Jordanian position an increasing role in the current crisis.
He stated that the resolution of the United Nations General Assembly clearly shows that there is a majority against the Israeli aggression against Gaza and against collective punishment of the residents of the Gaza Strip, indicating that as the aggression continues, we will witness a shift in the Western world towards what is happening, as some Western countries aligned with Israel voted with the resolution.
