AMMAN, Nov. 6 (Xinhua) -- China should play a leading role in the
Middle East, especially on the Palestinian issue and the Syrian crisis,
Jordan's Senate President Abdul Raouf Rawabdeh said on Thursday, adding
that Jordan-China relations are historic and at their best at present.
In an interview with Xinhua, Rawabdeh said China is one of the
great countries that are making history and future at this stage, noting
that Jordan has kept a distinguished relation with China since the time
of the late King Hussein. He added that His Majesty King Abdullah's
frequent visits to China have further developed this relationship.
China and Jordan have enjoyed a very friendly relationship since
diplomatic ties were established in 1977, which is evident through
cooperation in economy, commerce and services for the benefit of the two
peoples, Rawabdeh said.
