BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – Jordan has allegedly withdrawn their ambassador to Iran, Saudi state-owned Al-Arabiya TV claimed this afternoon.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.”

Iran is even more despotic, you know : both have a useless parliament, a difference is that Iran is a bizarre military dictatorship with a parody of democracy while Khamenei is in total control and has the highly fanaticised IRGC as an Iron Boot and described by old Iranians as even worst than the Shah’s infamous (secret police) SAVAK. Actually, Iranian population is far more pro-Zionist than the Jordan one, hehe! Any way, point me a single Middle-East regime not being despotic? There is only a single true democracy : Israel!

Obviously, as Jordan faces some economic troubles, the $2.5bln check the al-Sauds’ signed to king Abdullah-II just a few days ago is no stranger to this event 😉

How can you possibly withdraw an ambassador which is not there to begin with?

Jordan withdrew it’s ambassador in Tehran 2 years ago, in support of Bahrain withdrawing their ambassador from Tehran which was in support of Saudi withdrawing their ambassador in the first place (phew!). The Jordanian embassy in Tehran did not have an ambassador in the last two years.

Something is wrong with these Saudi “news” outlets.
