U.S. to provide 50 million dollars additional assistance to Jordan
font size    

The United States will provide 50 million U.S. dollars as an additional grant to Jordan for the year 2006, a source from the Jordanian Ministry of International Cooperation said on Wednesday.

According to the source, during a meeting of representatives of the U.S. Congress on Tuesday, the U.S. emergency budget for 2006 was approved, in which 50 million dollars were allocated as an additional grant to Jordan to support the Jordanian payment balance.

With this additional grant, the U.S. assistance to Jordan for 2006 will increase to 300 million dollars.

Jordan, a U.S. ally in the Middle East region, receives 250 million dollars economic assistance from Washington for the current fiscal year.

The additional assistance will help Jordan's economy, which is facing many challenges associated with soaring oil prices, according to an earlier statement released by Jordan's embassy in the U.S. during King Abdullah's visit to Washington in late May.
