Jordan: Pompeo tackles Syria, Jerusalem, aid with FM Al-Safadi

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated his country's support for Jordan, speaking alongside Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman al-Safadi, after a bilateral meeting in Amman on Monday. «In February the United States and Jordan signed a new five year MOU [memorandum of understanding] in which we committed to provide over 6.3 billion dollars in bilateral foreign assistance to Jordan over the next... Еще five years,» said Pompeo. «The conflict raging in Syria remains a threat to Jordanian peace and security. We'll continue to work with Jordan to help the kingdom defend its borders, always,» he added. Speaking on US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, Pompeo said, «the United States is not taking a position on boundaries or borders and will support a two-state solution if the parties agree to it. The specific boundaries of Israel sovereignty and Jerusalem remain subject to negotiation between those parties.» Pompeo is visiting Jordan as part of his first trip to the Middle East since assuming office on Thursday. In the past week he visited Saudi Arabia and Israel.
