The Parliamentary Foreign Affairs Committee condemned the use of the Israeli Occupation Minister of Finance, Bezalel Smotrich, of a flag that he claimed was of the Zionist entity, that included lands from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the occupied Palestinian territories.
The Jordanian Parliament displayed a map of Jordan and Palestine, in response to Smotrich's display of an inaccurate map in Paris.
The committee said in a statement that this behavior is unacceptable and is considered a violation of international customs and norms as well as the peace treaty between Jordan and the Israeli Occupation, adding that this statement is considered a part of inciteful rhetoric.
Jordan’s Foreign Ministry affirmed that such behavior will not harm Jordan and will not take away from the rights of the Palestinian people of an independent state.
The ministry added that this behavior can be expected from an extreme right-wing government that harbors hatred and extremism towards Arabs and Muslims, calling on the Israeli Occupation government to take a clear stance towards these irresponsible statements and to reconsider the peace treaty between the two countries.
