To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what plans the UK has to increase military assistance to Jordan for (a) training and (b) equipment.
26 April 2018
Jordan remains our largest military capacity building programme in the region. Importantly, we work with the Jordanian Armed Forces to identify areas of support. As a consequence, we deliver significant levels of training and equipment each year designed to help the Jordanian Armed Forces mitigate the risks of contagion from conflict in Iraq and Syria. Jordan is one of our closest regional allies and we plan to continue our level of support for as long as Jordan needs it and continues to face these security challenges.
