Jordan Works to Avoid US-dominated Iraq
Jordan worked with the Arab League in an effort to prevent the United States and Britain from governing Iraq alone, Jordanian officials said on Monday.

Jordanian Foreign Minister Marwan Moasher made the remarks on Monday following a visit by King Abdullah II to his ministry, Jordan's official Petra News Agency reported.

According to the king's instructions, Moasher contacted the Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa, "in an attempt to crystallize an outlook for active Arab position that would not only work to stop war as soon as possible... but also work to prevent USA and Britain from administering Iraq's affairs alone, and to ensure the Iraqi people's rights and their territorial integrity as well."

Moasher said that "the King is due to contact Arab leaders, and there might be visits in an attempt to crystallize this outlook."

On Sunday, a senior Jordanian official told Xinhua that the Jordanian government will only deal with an Iraqi government that is elected by Iraqi people.

As for the formation of a possible interim government, Jordan will absolutely not be involved in the process, he said.

The kingdom, bordering Iraq on the northeast, recently denounced the ongoing US-led military campaign as "invasion" into its brotherly neighboring country.

In the latest development, the US-led coalition forces were reported to be gaining remarkable steps in attacking Bagdad and Basra, the two major cities in Iraq.
