Rifai: Ties with Israel deteriorated due to settlements

Jordanian Prime Minister Samir Rifai said Sunday that relations between Israel and Jordan are the lowest point they have been since the peace agreement was signed between the two countries.
Rifai explained Qatari newspaper Al-Shark that the reason for this deterioration in diplomatic ties is because of "the settlement building policy, the unilateral steps that Israel adopts and the continued human rights violations against the Palestinian people."
