JCC urges severing of economic ties with entities supporting annexation

AMMAN — The private sector will call for a halt to all economic transactions with any country or party that approves or supports Israel's decision to annex new Palestinian lands, Jordan Chamber of Commerce (JCC) President Nael Kabariti said on Saturday.

In a statement, Kabariti said that this move aims to underpin the Kingdom's position, led by His Majesty King Abdullah, rejecting the Israeli annexation decision, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. Highlighting economic sectors' underpinning of His Majesty's stance in support of the Palestinian cause, Kabariti said that the JCC's decision is a "safety valve" that asserts Palestinians’ rights to their land.

He called on Arab private-sector institutions to support the Jordan-led efforts to defend Palestinians' rights.
