Tuesday, the Jordanian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Ayman Safadi Issued a statement in response to the Israeli Occupation's Minister of Finance Bezalel Smotrich's latest extremist statements and actions.

He stressed that the statements will not affect Jordan, our position, and the rights of the Palestinian people to establish their independent state.

Safadi said that Smotrich's statements sent a message to the international community about the Israeli Occupation's ideas that undermine the peace process.

- Jordan summons Tel Aviv ambassador in Amman -

The ministry summoned Monday the Israeli Occupation ambassador to Amman.

Earlier Monday, the ministry affirmed its strong condemnation and denunciation of the use of the Israeli Occupation Minister of Finance Bezalel Smotrich of a map of the Israeli Occupation that includes Jordan and the occupied Palestinian territories, in what represents a violation of international norms and the Jordanian-Israeli peace treaty.

After Jordan summoned the ambassador, the head of the Israeli National Security Council Tzachi Hanegbi confirmed to Safadi, over the phone, the Israeli occupation's commitment to the peace treaty with Jordan of 1994, stressing the occupation's recognition of the territorial integrity of Jordan.

He praised Jordan's role in reviving negotiations, which made the Aqaba and Sharm el-Sheikh summits a success.

- Extreme racist statements -

The Ministry stresses the need to put an end to these "extremist racist actions" taken by the same minister who had previously called for "wiping out" the town of Hawara in Nablus.

Jordan called on the international community to condemn extremist actions and statements, which also represent a violation of human values and principles.
