Jordan denies US claims that Iraqi WMD moved to its territories
Jordan on Sunday denied strongly reports that Iraq had moved its arsenal of weapons of mass destruction into its territories and it also denied having an Iraqi ambassador in the kingdom.
In statements published Sunday by the Minister of Information Dr. Nabil Al-Sharif, Amman expressed astonishment on the claims made by the head of the American-British inspection team David Kay on the transportation of Iraqi WMD to Jordan saying those reports are "baseless".
Al-Sharif added that the Jordanian borders with Iraq are under high surveillance and are strictly controlled by the Jordanian armed forces and border authorities.
