Syria vows to oppose Israel in new relationship with Jordan
Syria is committed to continuing to fight Israel as it strives to improve relations with Jordan.
It is well known that the Syrian regime has made more awareness in the region. In recent years, he has organized high-level appeals with Egypt, and more recently with Iraq, Jordan and now the Gulf countries. Syria seems to want to emerge from the cold after years of civil war. Many Arab states report that they also want further normalization.
According to Iranian media, this could be a concern for Iran. Although the Iranians do not say it openly, Tehran fears that Syria will return to the ranks of the Arab states, a move that could reduce the flow of arms through Iraq and Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Stability and normalization could be bad for Iran. A drone attack on the US base in Tanf over the weekend is one example of how Iran wants destabilization. Russia supports Damascus and may also prefer Syria reoriented towards the Arab region. Tensions with Turkey also continue.
In this context, Iranian newspaper Tasnim reported that a senior Syrian official spoke to Al-Mayadeen News, which is pro-Iran. He says Arab countries are looking to Syria.
“The consultations between Jordan and Syria started a year ago.
The source added that “the relationship between Syrian President Bashar Assad and Jordanian King Abdullah II was not the first meeting this year. Several Jordanian envoys visited the Syrian presidential palace this year.
It is important for Syria.
“The source said that Syria has not and will not change its stance on normalizing relations with the Zionist regime. Damascus considers normalization to be bad and detrimental to Arab and Palestinian interests. The official said, “Any change in Syria’s position towards Israel is a waiver of its rights, and that’s not a problem.”
Jordan recently opened a border post with Syria. There is even talk of supplying Lebanon with energy via Jordan and Syria. “Jordan has entered a new path to normalize its relations with Syria,” the report said.
“Jordan is aware of the advantages and specificities of its relationship with Syria. If the situation in Syria is stable, it can support Jordan in the food sector, and Jordan is a bridge between Syria and the GCC countries, ”said political scientist Ghassan Youssef.
Regarding Jordan’s statement that “Jordan is working with Arab countries and the international community to find a solution to the Syrian crisis,” the source said, “it makes Jordan not think it is going against it. -current and resulting in reduced pressure on this country is due to its interaction with Syria. The meaning of this statement was not clear.
ANOTHER PART of the report, however, notes that Jordan has a close relationship with the United States and that the United States is aware of openness to Syria and that means the United States can support outreach.
“The problem [for the US] it is thanks to the support of big countries like China for Syria.
The report notes that senior Syrian government ministers recently visited Jordan to discuss energy deals.
“Syrian Minister of Petroleum and Mines Bassam Ta’meh and Minister of Electricity Ghassan al-Zamil met Jordanian Minister of Energy Haleh Zawati during a visit to Jordan.
According to the statement, the meeting focused on expanding relations between the two countries in the field of oil and electricity.
