Lower House votes to expel Israeli ambassador
Amman, Mar. 22 (Petra) — The Lower House of Parliament has voted to expel the Israeli ambassador in Amman in protest of an Israeli far-right minister’s use of a map of Israel that includes Jordan and the occupied Palestinian territories.
In a session on Wednesday, House Speaker Ahmed Safadi called on the government to take effective measures against the finance minister’s statements and behavior.
During the session, the MPs said the Israeli minister’s behavior reflects “an Israeli arrogance and disrespect of international treaties and conventions.”
