A high-ranking Jordanian source told Al Arabiya English on Friday that Jordan transferred its ambassador Abdullah Abu Rumman from Iran to the Jordanian Foreign Ministry headquarters in Amman based on a decision by the Jordanian cabinet.
“Saudi Arabia’s security is (part) of our security,” he said, adding: “We are concerned over our Arab and Gulf depth.”
Interference in Arab affairs
“We reject (Iran’s policies) that interfere in the internal affairs of brotherly Arab countries and that harm the principle of good neighborliness which we respect when dealing with countries neighboring Arab states,” he added.
Diplomats said Jordan’s decision comes according to Jordan’s orientation “to evaluate its relations with Iran during this phase in the light of the givens and developments related to interferences in the security of the region’s countries.”
