Jordan Seeks to Improve Relations with Iran: Crown Prince
In an interview with Al Arabiya, Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah discussed Iran and Jordan relations, stating that Jordan, along with all Arab countries, seeks amicable relations with Iran, based on the principle of good neighbourly relations and non-intervention in the affairs of other countries.

He added that there is a Jordanian-Iranian dialogue on all issues.

Regarding Israeli aggression on Gaza since October 7, Hussein said that the Israeli government is escalating the situation in the West Bank as well and trying to drag the region into a regional war, adding, “We are dealing with a government controlled by an extremist agenda with ministers publicly inciting genocide against Palestinians."

The crown prince also criticized the world's reaction to the Gaza war. “It is inconceivable that the entire world cannot stop this ongoing tragedy. We are all shocked by the international community’s inability to stop this massacre,” he said. “People in our region have lost trust in the international community and its credibility, and they are right.”

“To date, 35,000 people have been killed, 70% of whom are women and children. What number will move the world to act?” he asked.

He added that, since the start of the Gaza war, Jordan has been in a "diplomatic and political battle," and that it has worked to "change the position of many countries against Israel," despite any political or economic cost to the kingdom.
