Jordan Overview

Jordan, kingdom in Western Asia east of the Jordan. 80% of the country is desert and semi-desert. Wheat, barley, vegetables and tropical fruits are grown, and there is extensive livestock farming (especially sheep and goats). The most important export product is phosphate.

History: The East Bank, which was settled in pre-Christian times, was initially ruled by the Christian tribe of the Ghassanids under Byzantine sovereignty. From the 6th century it belonged to Syria, from the 16th century to the Ottoman Empire.

After the First World War it came along with Palestine under British mandate. In 1946 Jordan became nominally independent. King was from 1952 Husain II (1935–99). In 1974, Jordan gave the claim to the territories west of the Jordan that Israel had occupied since the 1967 war in favor of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Movement). After the death of Husain, who initiated a process of democratization in the late 1980s and imWhen the Middle East conflict mostly acted as a mediator, his son Abdullah II (* 1962) became king in 1999. From 2011, King Abdullah II began a light reform process. In 2013, for example, Parliament was given a say in the determination of the head of government and ministers.
