Shanghai Daily - Nov 06, 2014

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.
