AMMAN — Farmers specialised in producing olive oil on Monday called for halting the exports of Jordanian olives to Israel, suggesting establishing a higher council for olive oil in Jordan that includes representatives of the public and private sectors.

During a seminar organised by the Professional Associations Council’s Anti-Normalisation Committee, participants noted that olives are “strategic” products and part of “national identity” that should be protected and supported.
