Jordan's government spokesman Mohammed Momani on Saturday dismissed claims that Jordan's King Abdullah II used accusatory remarks against Turkey during his visit in the U.S.
Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Momani responded to claims by certain websites that said King Abdullah uttered accusatory remarks against Turkey on his visit on Jan. 11.
"Turkey-Jordan relations are historic and based on mutual respect principle," said the Jordanian government spokesman, adding that these claims could not impact relations between the two countries.
"This kind of news is devoid of the minimum of vocational professionalism," Momani added.
King Abdullah of Jordan accused Turkey of "exporting terrorists to Europe," according to a story published by the Middle East Eye.
Momani's remarks came a day ahead of an official two-day visit to be paid by Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu to Jordan.
Davutoglu will meet with Jordan's King Abdullah II and Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour, and is expected to sign 10 agreements to boost trade between the two countries.
