AMMAN —AlGhad— Government spokesperson and State Minister for Media Affairs Dr Mohammad Momani condemned the sweeping sympathy for bank robbers on social media today, Thursday, and described sympathisers as criminals.

During the Minister’s weekly appearance on Radio Jordan, every Thursday, he said that publically condoning criminal activity is a crime.

The same goes in various countries around the world, he claimed.

On Jerusalem, Mr Momani reaffirmed that Trump’s decision to relocate the US Embassy from Tel Aviv is illegal and hurtful to the peace process.

It serves only the interests of extremist forces, he said, and prohibits the attainment of a just and fair solution to the Palestinian Cause. It feeds radicalisation as it only fosters frustration and desperation, he underlined.

In response to the proposal to replace US forces in Syria with Arab forces, the Minister said that a state’s official position is not based on media reports.

Jordan’s position of the Syrian crisis is to focus on political resolution.

It is the only course of action that ensures the stability and the territorial integrity of Syria, he underlined.
