Sources: Mishaal to visit Jordan before Eid

AMMAN, (PIC)– The political bureau chairman of Hamas Khaled Mishaal is to visit Amman soon for a series of meetings with Jordanian officials topped by King Abdullah II, a well-informed Jordanian source told the PIC on Sunday.

He said that the visit would signal the return of political relations between Hamas and Jordan, adding that Mishaal would also meet with newly appointed Jordanian premier Awn Al-Khasawne along with a number of ministers.

The source pointed out that political bureau member of Hamas Mohammed Nazzal had called on the official spokesman of the Jordanian government a couple of days ago to congratulate him on the formation of the new government. Nazzal had visited the spokesman twice before his appointment.

Media reports speculated that the visit would take place before Eidul Adha.

The sources said that Jordan was seriously planning to restore relations with Hamas after its clear stand regarding the Palestine cause especially the right of return and its refusal of Jordan as an alternative homeland for the Palestinians in addition to a Qatari mediation and finally due to the Zionist intransigence regarding the Middle East settlement process.

Sources earlier told the PIC that Mishaal had visited Jordan for the second time within a month to call on his sick mother while on his way to the Saudi capital Riyadh to attend the funeral of late Saudi crown prince Sultan Bin Abdul Aziz.
