A Commitment to World Peace

UN Peacekeeping Operations
Summit of the Peace makers
Humanitarian and Peace-Brokering Missions


While Jordan’s primary focus remains on building a stable and prosperous regional order, the country’s commitment to peace does not stop at the borders of the Middle East. Because of this longstanding commitment, Jordan has historically played a role larger than its size and resources would dictate. Two areas in which the Kingdom has had a significant part in recent years are in United Nations peacekeeping missions and in the fight against terrorism. In addition, Jordan has carried out a number of humanitarian missions and peace-brokering initiatives designed to bring succor and peace to troubled areas.
