A Gulf-Jordanian meeting in Mecca to discuss the Amman crisis

The Jordanian monarch, Abdullah II, was unable to return citizens to their homes, despite the replacement of the government, and the withdrawal of the new tax law, so the brotherly countries of the Gulf are expected to emerge from the crisis.

Saudi Arabia, Jordan, United Arab Emirates and Kuwait held a meeting in the city of Mecca to discuss the economic crisis in Jordan and how to overcome them.

Jordan has high hopes for the meeting, pledging the Gulf states to provide a multi-billion dollar aid package to help it cope with a crisis that led to widespread protests in the streets of Amman.

King Abdullah, who arrived at Jeddah airport for the Umrah pilgrimage, told Saudi Arabia's official news agency, which published pictures of the Jordanian monarch dressed in white cloths as soon as he arrived at the airport.

Officials hope the Saudi meeting will agree to a large package equivalent to the $ 5 billion previously earmarked by the Gulf states for Jordan in December 2011 to contain pro-democracy protests spreading across the region.

The funds were linked to development projects that helped stimulate the country's aid economy.
