New US-Jordan Memorandum of Understanding on Bilateral Foreign Assistance to Jordan

The US State Department further commented that the deal "highlights the pivotal role Jordan plays in helping foster and safeguard regional stability and supports US objectives such as the global campaign to defeat ISIS [Daesh], counter-terrorism cooperation and economic development."The US has historically provided Jordan with the most assistance in the region after Israel and Egypt". This agreement pledges $1.275b.in USA aid to Jordan each year for five years - a 27% increase from the last MoU, which lasted two years.

Talks during the meeting also dealt with the Middle East peace process, where His Majesty stressed the importance of intensifying regional and worldwide efforts to re-launch negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis based on the two-state solution that should lead to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Since Trump's announcement, however, Palestinian officials have rejected any US role in peace talks with Israel, arguing that Washington is no longer capable of acting as a fair broker.

The United States threw the Arab and Muslim world into a rage, in December, when President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and initiated the move of the US embassy from Tel Aviv.

The Trump administration has signed a Memorandum of Understanding worth $6.375 billion in defense aid to Jordan, in a ceremony in Amman on Wednesday.

There is broad worldwide consensus that the issue of Jerusalem's status should be resolved mutually toward the very end of negotiations.

"For decades the USA and Jordan have sustained a truly indispensable strategic partnership that has been critical to the security of both of our nations".

"But the president was clear also on his statement and as I just indicated in my statement, that the final status, the final borders in Jerusalem, are up to the parties to decide".

After 54 Years of Statehood, Nagaland Yet to Elect Woman to Assembly
Questions may be asked if the BJP deems the Christian population of Nagaland less dignified than Muslims across India. BJP is believed to have made a similar promise to the Christians of a trip to Jerusalem, though for free.

"It's true that there are some differences in our position when it comes to Jerusalem", said al-Safadi, "but we are trying to preclude making the situation exacerbate, and we are trying to reach a solution because an absence of political horizon and a solution will serve only those who want to immerse this region in further tension and conflict". While describing it as "fairly well advanced", Tillerson said it was up to Trump to decide when to release the plan. The Trump administration has burden-sharing in aid a central part of its "America First" strategy.

The Lebanese presidency denied there was any departure from protocol and Rafik Chalala, who heads Aoun's media office, said Tillerson had arrived a few minutes earlier than expected and that the meeting began on time. But when there's a crisis, "only the United States gets called", he said.

Speaking at a press conference in Amman, Jordan, Tillerson declined to provide a time frame for when the proposal might be unveiled, but said that it has been under development for several months. But the main opposition body - including the members Tillerson met on Wednesday - boycotted the conference.
