- Jordan Warns UK, US of ‘Unprecedented Danger’ of Israel’s Land Grab Bid
Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi has cautioned Britain and the United States against the “unprecedented danger” posed by an Israeli scheme to annex parts of the occupied Palestinian territory, urging the international community to step in.
In a telephone conversation with his British counterpart Dominic Raab, Safadi said the Tel Aviv regime’s plan to impose its “sovereignty” over West Bank settlements and the Jordan Valley is “an unprecedented danger that threatens the chance of peace.”
The top Jordanian diplomat called on Raab to prevent Israel from moving forward with the annexation plan. He further stressed the significance of “urgent and active interference” by the international community to “protect the chances of peace.”
In a separate conversation with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Safadi expressed Jordan’s strong opposition to Israel’s push for consolidating its occupation of Palestinian lands. The annexation scheme “undermines all peace prospects,” he noted.
