BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – Jordan has allegedly withdrawn their ambassador to Iran, Saudi state-owned Al-Arabiya TV claimed this afternoon.
Citing a senior Jordanian official, Al-Arabiya claimed ambassador ‘Abdallah Suleiman Abu Raman was transferred from Tehran to ‘Amman this week.
“There is no intention of naming another Jordanian ambassador to Tehran at this moment,” the unnamed Jordanian official told Al-Arabiya.
According to the Al-Arabiya source, the reason for the withdrawal is “Jordan’s firm stance on Iran’s policies that involve their interference in the affairs of regional countries.”
The Al-Arabiya source stressed Iran’s specific policies against “the security of the countries in this region, especially Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Cooperation Council countries.”
He added “Saudi Arabia’s security is our security.”
The source confirmed that the Jordanian ambassador to Iran had already returned to Amman this morning after being summoned for consultations on the background of “Iranian interference in Arab affairs.”
