The United States’s work on a new Middle East peace plan is “fairly well advanced”, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said during the visit to Jordan, Reuters reported.
“I have seen the (administration’s peace) plan... It’s been under development for a number of months. I have consulted with them on the plan, identified areas that we feel need further work. I will say it’s fairly well advanced...” Tillerson said.
Within the visit Tillerson and the Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi signed a memorandum of understanding.
Commenting on the memorandum of understanding signed for $6.375 billion in aid on Wednesday, the U.S. State Department said: “(It) highlights the pivotal role Jordan plays in helping foster and safeguard regional stability and supports U.S. objectives such as the global campaign to defeat ISIS, counter-terrorism cooperation, and economic development.”
