King Abdullah II of Jordan
has cancelled his planned trip to Romania in response to the Romanian
prime minister’s announcement that the country plans to move its embassy
in Israel to Jerusalem.
Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dancila said during a speech before the AIPAC conference in Washington on Sunday that her country intends to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
The statement was strongly contradicted by the country’s president, who opposes the move and has a final say on foreign policy issues.

Following on with US economic sanctions, Trump is applying “soft power” to Iran to bring about a power struggle inside Iran to further weaken resistance to US-Israel expansion in the region:
Will Trump’s “peace plan” (Jared Kushner’s plan) take custodianship of the holy sites in Israel away from Jordan and give them to Saudi Arabia? This is based on the fact that Israel has been working with Saudi Arabia secretly for decades pretty much now out in the open.
Jared Kushner and his friend Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, have been working closely together developing the “peace plan” between Palestine and Israel. This developing relationship between Israel and Saudi Arabia (Sunni) is leading to a coalition against Iran (Shiite). The present course considering the diplomacy going on between the US, Saudi Arabia, Israel and Iran is moving gradually towards war. The Saudi regime is going for a record year in executions with Jared Kushner’s friend – and Israel’s close partner – at the head of the House of Saud.
