Jordanian Minister of Transport Anmar Al Khasawneh said on Wednesday that since Israel began working on the Ramon Airport Jordan has been voicing objection and has submitted a formal complaint to the International Civil Aviation Organization for Israel’s violation of international airspace regulations based on the Chicago Convention on Civil Aviation.

"The Civil Aviation Organization is responsible for the accreditation of this airport," the Minister said, "a one-sided agreement which Tel Aviv and the international organization will bear its consequences."

The Minister stressed that Jordan has addressed this issue more than once, and stressed that Jordan will not be responsible for any security issues at the airport in the future.

"The government is following up closely on this issue and will not hesitate to keep following up," he said.
