3:29 am
a professor of international studies at the university of jordan he spoke to others here about why jordan has been facing economic difficulties and what they hope to achieve at the meeting in mecca. this is confusing for damien's and we expected that no one would let jordan down but unfortunately over the last two years jordan has received no funds from from the gulf he stated probably they are they have their own problem they're bogged down in in regional conflicts it's cetera but. actually you know it's better to arrive late than never i mean actually they're coming back now to jordan and they are suggesting to help jordan to get jordan out of its economic crisis and this is a statement about this in tragedy of jordan for regional stability jordan has been helping the gulf states in. propping up their security help them in different files but also in the regional security do then is very important ally for the gulf states but over the last few years you know the gulf states have their own
3:30 am
perception their own perception of a threat they differ i was jordan over some files and that's probably explains why they did not help jordan when jordan was in badly need for help and jordan's central it in the region is widely acknowledged. so he's now in saudi arabia to meet. i mean the gulf illegal there and i think he's he's going to talk to them from a position of strength do that could not be laid down again because if jordan descent into mayhem or an arche for god forbid begin to suffer so this is the message so it's not about we just need money from unfun from the gulf estate it's about the need to empower jordanians to be in a position to also stand up to a new regional scheme that schemes that do not actually fit into the perception of regional security. environmentalists in the australian state of victoria are skiis government to reconsider its bailout of the logging industry and involves more of
