Riyadh Meeting to Discuss Jordan's GCC Induction

Foreign ministers of Jordan and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) will meet this month in Riyadh to discuss the mechanisms of Jordan's induction into the council.

Mohammad Abu Hammour, Jordan's minister of finance, said: "The mechanism and methodology are not yet clear and the effective date of Jordan's membership is also not set yet."

It is unclear what impact Jordan's integration into the GCC will have on relations between Ankara and Jerusalem as the other members of the council are still technically at war with Israel.
