Arab oil states bail Jordan out with $2.5bn grant

Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and United Arab Emirates agreed on Monday to allocate $2.5 for rescuing cash-strapped Jordan’s economy after a week of popular riots against price hikes forced the prime minister to resign and his cabinet to fall. Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Jordanian King Abdullah II, Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and UAE’s Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum meeting in Mecca approved the package. The aid will come in the form of a deposit in the Central Bank of Jordan, providing guarantees to the World Bank for the benefit of Jordan, annual support for the budget of the Jordanian government for five years and funding for development projects.

    The freak of Jordan King thought that by siding with Turkey for the Palestinian cause he was doing his moon god a favor. Too bad, he had to lick the dust of IMF.

      What about paying for 50 mil cube of water Israel supplies to Jordan free ??? It would probably cost 2 bills a year .And what about gas ? or Military support ? Food ? Chemicals ? Electricity ?
      Is Jordan the tribe of Israel or a State of Israel crony like Hamas and PLO ? And they want to fight Isis ? ???
      Ask Israel for help , they will probably ask Isis to change their uniforms …

    ynot a day longer…
