AMMAN — Former prime minister Taher Al-Masri said that Jordan cannot cancel its Wadi Araba peace treaty with Israel due to political and international reasons, despite the current conditions caused by Israel’s extremist right-wing government, Hala News reported.اضافة اعلان

In a dialogue session on recent Palestinian developments held on Monday at the Jordanian Masarat Foundation for Development, which saw the participation of politicians, representatives of the media, and academics, Masri stressed the importance of maintaining awareness on the threat Israel poses towards Palestine and Jordan under Netanyahu’s extremist government.

Members of the current hard-line Israeli government were responsible for the killing of former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, he said, and “they are the ones who have disrupted peace in the region”.

These government officials are working to change the basic system of Israeli government, and because of this, they are a danger to Jordan, he added.

Masri warned of the gravity of recent Israeli actions and plans targeting the Kingdom. Palestine, he said, is Jordan’s foremost cause, but the Kingdom must also protect itself — which is the role of Jordanian diplomacy.
