U.S.'s Blinken reaffirms 'strategic partnership' in call with Jordan's kingReuters | Washington DC | Updated: 09-04-2021 01:42 IST | Created: 09-04-2021 01:40 IST
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with Jordan's King Abdullah on Thursday and "reaffirmed the U.S. commitment to its strategic partnership with Jordan," a U.S. State Department spokesman said.
Blinken's call, a day after President Joe Biden underlined strong U.S. support for Jordan and the leadership of the king, follows a political crisis in the Middle Eastern country. King Abdullah said on Wednesday sedition had been quashed after a rift with his half-brother and former heir Prince Hamza, whom the government had accused of links to efforts to destabilize Jordan.
