MANAMA — Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee at the Bahraini Shura Council Sheikh Khaled Bin Khalifa Al Khalifa on Monday stressed the need to maintain Jordan’s stability and unity.

He highlighted the importance of supporting Jordan morally and economically to help it overcome the extraordinary economic conditions facing it.

Bahraini deputy Abdul Halim Murad, head of the Asala parliamentary bloc, called on Gulf countries to cover Jordan’s $2 billion fuel subsidies, an amount of money which, he said, does not constitute a burden on the Gulf Cooperation Council.
