Jordan Receives Oil Supply from Saudi Arabia
Jordan has received first shipment of oil supply from Saudi Arabia after the ongoing US-led war stopped the oil supply from neighboring Iraq, the official Petra news agency reported on Sunday.

A ship laden with 100,000 tones of Saudi oil recently arrived in Aqaba, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Mohammad Batayneh was quoted as saying.

Batayneh, meanwhile, noted that the kingdom has enough oil reserve and the import of foreign oil goes as usual.

This is the first time Jordan announced it has received oil shipment from a friendly country other than Iraq since the normal oil supply from the eastern neighbor was disrupted by the US-led war.

Both Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have pledged to send oil to Jordan since the Iraq war started on March 20, a landmark move that could save the kingdom hundreds of millions of dollars.

Since the 1991 Gulf War, Iraq has become Jordan's only oil supplier with an annual transfer of 5 million tons of crude oil and oil products, half for free and half at preferential prices.
