AMMAN (Sputnik) — The visit of Saudi Arabian King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to Moscow is politically advantageous for Jordan and creates new possibilities for achieving peace in the Middle East, Raid Khaza'leh, the head of Jordanian parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, told Sputnik Friday.
"This visit is extremely profitable for Jordan. Such a big country as Saudi Arabia, which is our important ally, has engaged in a political rhetoric regarding the Syrian business which is close to Jordan's rhetoric," Khaza'leh said.
According to Khaza'leh, Jordanian authorities have always adhered to the principle of the political settlement in Syria, unlike Saudi Arabia, which has been rejecting this approach for a long time.
"Saudis have realized that it is impossible to resolve the Syrian crisis on its own, it is possible to do this through concerted efforts, and the solution can not be reached without the consent of the Russian party, the position of which is close to the position of Syrian authorities and the public institutions of the Syrian Arab Republic," Khaza'leh indicated.
On Wednesday, King Salman arrived in Russia at the invitation of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Saudi leader held a meeting with Putin, during which the two parties discussed a number of issues, including the situation in Syria. Earlier in October, King Salman's adviser Anwar Eshki stated that the Syrian developments would be on the agenda of the two leaders' meeting, adding that both Saudi Arabia and Russia advocated a unified Syria without foreign influence.
