During his visit to Jordan, Secretary of state of USA Rex Tillerson will sign an agreement with the Kingdom of American aid. About it reports Reuters, citing an official Jordanian source.
According to the agreement, for four years, the Hashemite monarchy will receive $ 1.25 billion annually. Thus, a total of Jordan will receive five billion dollars.
We will remind that earlier the President of the United States Donald trump threatened to block financial assistance to States refusing to support the American position in the UN. Jordan condemned the decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
However, the Kingdom is a key US ally in the region, occupying an important geographical position between Israel, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Syria. The stability of the Kingdom meets both American and Israeli interests.
