US Jordan Bilateral Relations
MetadataShow full item record
Even though the United States and Kingdom of Jordan have never signed a formal treaty, the relationship between the two countries has been close. The continued stabiity of Jordan, the increasing role that Jordan is playing in stabilizing Iraq, the cooperation of Jordan in the peace process, and the military and intelligence cooperation between the two countries are of primary strategic interest for the United States. As a reflection of this strategic interest, the US Jordan became a major recipient of U.S. assistance, both military and economic, in the 1990s. Between 1998 and 2002, annual U.S. aid to Jordan was approximately $150 million in economic assistance and $75 million in military assistance. In 2003, primarily as a result of Jordan's support for the U.S. war against terrorism and operations in Iraq, U.S. assistance to Jordan has increased. Total economic assistance since 1952 now exceeds $4.4 billion. The US views the economic and military stabiity of Jordan as being an essential component in the ongoing stabilization efforts in the Middle East.
