US President Donald Trump throws his weight behind efforts to isolate Qatar over claims it supports ‘extremism’.
Jordanian government spokesman Mohammed Momani said in a statement that the decision was made to ensure regional stability, coordinate the policies of Arab countries and “end the crises in our region.”
The four nations alleged that Qatar harbours “extremists” and backs Saudi Arabia’s regional rival, Iran. Qatar has denied the allegations.
Saudi Arabia is a key financial backer of Jordan.
