Jordanian Prime Minister Bisher al-Khasawneh told that his country has never considered Iran a threat to its national security.
In an interview with BBC, al-Khasawneh told, “We have never looked at Iran as a source of threats to our national security.”
Amman is seeking to establish good relations with Tehran, he stated, adding that “Jordan has substantial reservations about the way Iran is dealing with some regional files.”
Al-Khasawneh indicated, “Jordan seeks to reach a formula of dialogue with Iran based on relations of neighborliness.”
After Jordan’s support to Iraq during its war with Tehran in the 1980s, Jordan’s relations with Iran were severely damaged.
Baghdad has hosted talks between Jordan and Iran to normalize their relations, Iraqi officials have recently revealed. Both Tehran and Amman have not confirmed this revelation.
