Jordan Appoints Ambassador to Qatar
Jordan announced on Tuesday the appointment of Zeid al-Lawzi as the Kingdom’s new ambassador to Qatar.
Amman downgraded its diplomatic representation in June 2017, a few days after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain scrapped all ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorism.
Lawzi is a senior Jordanian career diplomat and secretary general of the Foreign Ministry.
Jordan also said it had accepted Qatar’s nomination of Sheikh Saud bin Nasser bin Jasem al Thani, a member of Doha’s royal family, as ambassador to Amman.
