British Ambassador: Jordan Will Serve as NATO’s Base in the Coming War against ISIS

British Ambassador to Jordan Peter Millett

Jordan’s King Abdullah’s participation in the upcoming NATO summit will be of “immeasurable illumination” on the strategy of confronting the Islamic State of Iraq and the Syria (ISIS), British Ambassador to Jordan Peter Millett told journalists on Tuesday, Jordan Times reported.

Millett briefed the press on the agenda of the summit, which will be held from September 4-5 in Newport, Wales.

According to Millett, three topics will dominate the upcoming meeting: the Ukraine, Afghanistan, and the threat ISIS poses to Middle East security and stability.

Millett said King Abdullah’s “participation is of prime importance because there will be a lot of discussions, ideas and proposals on the role that NATO can play in confronting ISIS’ threat. How can we cooperate and coordinate, and work with Jordan to achieve the security of Jordan and the region and NATO’s allies.”

The ambassador emphasized that the rise of ISIS and the spread of its radical ideology is now a major concern to the West, adding that “the big debate in the UK at the moment is about the British Jihadists returning home one day”.

Millett noted that Jordan has been a strategic partner to NATO since 1994, and the Kingdom’s stability and security is a top priority to all the 28 members of the alliance.

The ambassador refused to elaborate about the precise nature of Jordan’s role in any NATO action against ISIS, but cited the important role Jordan has been playing in assisting the alliance’s military and humanitarian operations in Afghanistan and Libya.

“NATO has constantly been adapting and changing, and the alliance now needs to adapt to the danger we are all facing from extremists and terrorists in Syria and Iraq, ” Millett said.
