Muslim Brotherhood: UK ambassador’s remarks in Jordan incompatible with diplomatic norms

Deputy Comptroller General of the Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan Zaki Bani Irsheid has criticised the British Ambassador to Jordan Peter Millett who said that his government welcomes intelligence from Jordan about the group’s philosophy and activities in the Kingdom.


Irsheid said the ambassador’s remarks were improper and contrary to diplomatic norms and rules. “The group has decided not to cooperation with the British government in this regard because it does not need recognition from others” he said.

Earlier this week Millett said: “Any Jordanian who wishes to provide the British government with his testimony about the Muslim Brotherhood philosophy, activities and impact in the Kingdom is more than welcome, including the movement itself.”

The British government recently decided to review the Muslim Brotherhood philosophy, activities and influence in the UK and abroad as a prelude to review its internal policy towards the group.
