Jordan warns relations will 'suffer' due to Jerusalem 'violations'

Jordanian Minister of Islamic Affairs Hayel Dawood has warned that recent Israeli "violations" in East Jerusalem threatened to harm relations between Amman and Israel.

"Relations between countries are based on interests, mutual respect and a commitment to law and international treaties," Dawood told Anadolu Agency.

"Relations will suffer due to Israel's disrespect for the [1994] Jordan-Israel peace agreement," he warned.

His comments came after Jordan recalled its ambassador from Israel to protest Israeli "violations" in East Jerusalem.
