King Abdullah Of Jordan Receives First Call From Syria's Assad In Decade

On October 3, the royal Jordanian palace announced that King Abdullah had received a phone call from Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. This was the first such communication between the town leaders since the start of the conflict in Syria a decade ago.

During the phone call, King Abdullah and President Assad discussed bilateral ties and means of enhancing cooperation between their respective countries.

“King Abdullah reiterated Jordan’s support for efforts to safeguard Syria’s sovereignty, stability, territorial integrity, and the unity of its people,” a statement on the call by the Royal Hashemite Court reads.

King Abdullah was among the leaders who called on Assad to step down following the outbreak of the conflict in Syria in 2011.

In the recent months, Jordan took a series of steps to normalize relations with Damascus once again, boosted by a US initiative to provide Egyptian gas and Jordanian electricity to crisis-struck Lebanon via Syria.

On September 19, Syrian Defense Minister and Chief of Staff Ali Ayyoub paid a visit to Jordan where discussed “fighting terrorism and border control” with the Kingdom’s military leadership. Later on September 23, Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad met with his Jordanian counterpart in New York on the side line of the United Nations General Assembly meeting.

The relations between Jordan and Syria saw another breakthrough on September 28 when the Nasib border crossing linking the two countries was reopened.

Jordan’s rapprochement with Assad is a testimony to the failure of the US policy on Syria. Even US allies in the Middle East appear to be fed up with Washington repeated attempts to isolate and discredit Damascus. These attempts had a bad economic and security impacts on Syria’s neighbors, including Jordan.

jordanian clowns are flip flopping now that they finally realize the amero/anglo clowns and their saudi/zionist proxies are nearing the end of their rope.


You think the King will join Assad side, or at least secretly join?


Absolutely not. He is an imposter in service to western intersests. His mother was “british” (Toni Avril Gardiner), and he was educated at oxford and georgetown universities.

A complete sellout puppet.

Didn’t Assad study medicine in Britain?


Do you see jordan attacked by multiple nations proxies and western countries as well, murdering civilians at will for the last 10 years?

Even a basic look at his biography shows abdullah 2.0 is a servile stooge of british/american interests.

I hope we will see trade start to happen across the border of both countries. Improving relations with Jordan can only help Syria and vice versa, and hopefully contribute further stability to region.


Waste of time. Zio boy Abdullah cannot do anything without first obtaining permission from his ruler in Hell Aviv and Washington
