Jordan's PM Rejects Cutting Ties with Israel

Jordan’s Prime Minister on Tuesday rejected the possibility that his country would cut ties with Israel and expel the Israeli ambassador from Amman, despite demands to do so in the wake of the killing of a Jordanian judge by Israeli soldiers.

AFP reported that Prime Minister Abdullah Nsur made the comments during a discussion on a no-confidence motion, which he had managed to escape despite the fact that the motion was motivated by his government's allegedly weak response to the incident.
