In a phone conversation with his Iranian counterpart, Hussein Amir Abdullahian, following reports of the Israeli Occupation's attack on Iran, Safadi made it clear that Jordan would not tolerate any violations of its airspace by Iran or the Israeli Occupation.

He communicated to the Iranian Foreign Minister the importance of respecting Jordan's airspace, emphasizing that Jordan had never permitted nor would permit the Israeli Occupation to breach its airspace to target Iran. Similarly, Jordan would not tolerate any violations of its airspace by Iran.

Safadi emphasized that the current escalation only serves to distract attention from the Israeli Occupation aggression against Gaza, which must be the foremost priority demanding collective efforts to halt it.

The Iranian Foreign Minister assured that his country respects Jordan's sovereignty and is committed to ensuring the security of Jordan and the wider region.
