Jordan Establishes Gaza Strip Office

Jordan has established a diplomatic office in the Gaza Strip. A senior Jordanian diplomat arrived Monday in Gaza to take up his duties as the Hashemite kingdom’s representative.

Ziad Majali, 43, a former head of the political department at the Jordanian Foreign Ministry, is due to present his credentials to Palestine Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat later this month.

Eight other countries have representatives in Gaza: Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Greece and Turkey.
