Jordan: US grants Jordan extra aid of $150 million

Jordan says that President Barack Obama has approved an additional economic assistance of $150 million to the kingdom for the 2009 fiscal year.
Jordan's Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Suhair Al-Ali said in a statement late Sunday that it's supplemental assistance.
It comes in addition to the $363 million in regular U.S. economic assistance to Jordan, bringing the total to $513 million.
Al-Ali says U.S. financial aid to Jordan has contributed to the implementation of several important development projects, including, water, health, education and environment projects.
Since 1952, the U.S. economic assistance to Jordan has totaled $5.6 billion.
