(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
Jordan's King Abdullah II said Friday that he supports a
military alliance in the Middle East similar to the Western-led
NATO, Trend reports citing Al Arabiya .
Speaking to CNBC, King Abdullah said that the charter of such an
alliance would need to be very clear.
“I would be one of the first people that would endorse a Middle
East NATO, but the linkages to the rest of the world and how we fit
in… has to be very, very clear. Otherwise, it confuses everybody,”
Closer cooperation on the military front between Arab countries
and Israel has been pushed by the US for several years.
