Jordan, Morocco and Egypt to attend Bahrain workshop – Middle East – Jerusalem Post

Jordan, Egypt and Morocco will join Saudi Arabia and Gulf States at a Bahrain summit on June 25-26 aimed at supporting the Palestinian economy, reports indicated on Wednesday. The meeting has been boycotted by the Palestinian Authority because it is thought to form the foundation for the Trump administration’s “Deal of the Century.”The Kingdom of Jordan is attending so as not to be left out of the important discussions. It also appears to have decided to attend because of the growing consensus in the region on the conference. Although Iran has harshly opposed Bahrain hosting the event, accusing Saudi Arabia and Bahrain of being traitors involved in a US “plot,” Riyadh’s stature has added legitimacy to the event. It comes in the wake of three successful summits in Mecca in late May that paid some lip service to supporting the Palestinians, but also dovetailed with Washington’s line on Iranian threats.
