US President Barack Obama has signed a supplemental appropriations bill, which includes $150 million in additional economic assistance to Jordan for the 2009 fiscal year, a senior official said on Sunday.I cannot find this story in any Western media source, although YNet noticed it.
Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Suhair Al-Ali said the supplemental assistance is in addition to the $363 million in regular US economic assistance to Jordan for 2009, bringing the total to $513 million.
The US assistance programme to Jordan is among the largest in the world, the US embassy in Amman previously said in a statement.
