AMMAN — Jordan on Friday called on the Middle Eastern countries, including Israel, to join the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Jordan also called for bringing nuclear facilities under the observation of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Jordan Atomic Energy Commission Chief Khaled Toukan made the remarks during the 61st IAEA Conference in Vienna.

Touqan, who headed Jordan’s delegation, said that bringing the facilities under observation would pave for a nuclear weapon-free region and contribute to enhancing peace and security in the world.
