Lawmaker: Jordan King Iran Trip Inappropriate

“The president should make a decision in accordance with the country's interests,” Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Tuesday.

“Although the president has the right to invite heads of other states, he should make a decision based on the country's interests, dignity and prudence,” he told Majlis news agency (ICANA).

The Iranian lawmaker stressed that the invitation is not appropriate “at the current stage with regard to the ongoing developments in the region.”

In December, Iranian president's chief of staff Esfandiyar Rahim-Mashaei reportedly extended an invitation on behalf of Ahmadinejad to Jordan's King Abdullah II, asking the monarch to visit Iran for this spring's Nowruz celebrations.

While welcoming the Iranian invitation, the Jordanian king told the presidential envoy that he was “keen to develop Iranian-Jordanian relations,” said a statement issued by Jordan's Royal Court.

The statement also quoted Abdullah as saying that it is of significant importance that Tehran and Amman try to “improve Jordanian-Iranian relations in the service of both countries, their brotherly people and joint Islamic causes, and to consolidate security and stability in the region.”

On Monday, Ahmadinejad said although King Abdullah II had welcomed the invitation, he postponed the visit.

However, the postponement has “nothing to do with any article or remark by anyone,” the Iranian chief executive pointed out.

“The government makes prudent decisions on internal and international fields based on principles,” Ahmadinejad said.
