Jordan says scrapping peace deal with Israel impossible

IANS November 10, 2014 7:09 IST

Amman: Jordanian Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour Sunday said it is impossible to scrap the peace deal with Israel under the current circumstances, media reported.

Severing the deal will cause political, security and military consequences, Ensour said, adding "This issue is not under discussions at this stage."

If one needs to cancel the peace treaty, there should be an alternative, he added.

There is a need for preparations if Jordan wants to cancel the treaty, which the two sides signed in 1994, Xinhua reported citing the state-run Petra news agency.

Last week, Jordan recalled its ambassador in Tel Aviv after Israeli escalations in east Jerusalem and imposition of entry restrictions at Al Aqsa mosque.
