Jordan PM: Iran never a threat, welcomes friendly bilateral relations
Jordanian Prime Minister Bisher al-Khasawneh expresses that his country has never seen Iran as a threat to its national security and that it welcomes friendly bilateral relations with Tehran.
Amman is open to “healthy relations” with the Islamic Republic, Khasawneh said in an interview with BBC Arabic television news network.
“We have never looked at Iran as a source of threats to our national security,” he said during the interview, which was broadcast on Sunday evening.
Late last month, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said Arab countries look for the promotion of diplomatic relations with Iran, roundly dismissing the existence of any talks on the formation of a NATO-like anti-Iran military alliance in the Middle East with the participation of Israel.
The top Jordanian diplomat also rejected Western and Israeli media reports that Arab states and the Tel Aviv regime were planning to form a military alliance, with the help of the United States, to confront Iran.
