Tillerson Says US Mideast 'Peace Plan' Fairly Well Advanced

"The United States has been a true friend and a solid partner to the kingdom", said Safadi.

"This MoU is a signal to the rest of the world that the US-Jordan partnership has never been stronger", Tillerson said, adding that it represents around 27 per cent increase compared to previous bilateral commitments to Jordan.

"For decades, the US and Jordan sustained a strategic and indispensible partnership and we recognise the importance of this partnership by signing this MoU for the coming five years", US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said at a joint press conference on Wednesday with Minister of Foreign Affairs Ayman Safadi after signing the deal. It includes military financing as well as economic assistance funds.

A USA decision to cut funding for a United Nations agency that provides education and health services to Palestinian refugees throughout the Middle East has further soured relations, with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and others openly declaring that the U.S. has forfeited its traditional role as a mediator in the peace process.

He added that the decision "does not preclude a two-state solution if that is the solution the parties seek". "The MoU we have just signed is a testimony to the enduring nature of our relations".

He added that Jordan was looking forward to continuing working with the U.S. and the global community to achieve the desired lasting peace.

"We greatly appreciate your support".

"I have seen the USA administration's peace plan".

On Syria, Tillerson expressed the United States' thanks to Jordan for receiving Syrian refugees until proper conditions for their voluntary return to their country are available. I have consulted with them on the plan, identified areas that we feel need further work.

With regard to the situation in Lebanon, Tillerson stressed his country's keenness on the stability of a free and democratic Lebanon, away from any outside interference, especially the Iranian's.

"The additional funds and years will support Jordan's important role in addressing regional conflict and instability, including the impact that the crisis in Syria has had on Jordan", Tillerson said. Referring to the United States' support for UNRWA, Tillerson said UNRWA's support is an worldwide affair, underlining the United States' commitment to supporting the UN organization, especially its educational and health services. Tillerson commended Jordan's decision to sever diplomatic ties with North Korea and its continued call for stability on the Korean peninsula.
