Jordan urges common planning for pan-Arab security

AMMONNEWS - Minister of Foreign and Expatriates Affairs Ayman Safadi on Sunday emphasized that there is a pressing need to devise a common Arab plan to protect pan-Arab security within a comprehensive definition of security that also addresses political and socioeconomic needs.

Addressing an extraordinary Arab League meeting at ministers levels in Cairo, the minister said Jordan is ready to host or launch an extensive pan-Arab dialogue that would clearly identify all threats to common Arab security and agree on effective institutional mechanisms to address them.

Safadi made it clear that pan-Arab security is indivisible and that any threat to the security of any Arab country is tantamount to a threat to all Arab countries. He told the meeting, requested by Saudi Arabia, that current crises were triggered by repression, injustice, ignorance, terrorism, external interference, foreign agendas and expansionist ambitions in many Arab countries.

He said that Jordan considers the security of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain part of Jordan's security. In this context, he condemned the recent ballistic missile launch against Saudi Arabia and the bombing that targeted an oil pipeline in Bahrain. "Our region does not need more crises, we are advocates of peace and not conflicts, we want regional relations based on cooperation and respect for others and non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries in accordance with international laws and charters," Safadi said, adding: "This is the message all Arab summits sent to Iran and countries other than Iran." He further said: "We want good-neighborly relations based on mutual respect, not strained relations that are threatened by interference in Arab affairs and expansionist agendas and pursuit of domination.
