Costa Rica, Jordan Restore Diplomatic Ties
Costa Rica and Jordan signed documents in New York on Wednesday to re-establish diplomatic relations.

Costa Rican Foreign Minister Bruno Stagno said the resumption of ties was conducive to his country's political approach to Arab nations, which would provide new opportunities for Costa Rican enterprises to seek new export markets and attract foreign investments.

Some Arab nations severed diplomatic relations with Costa Rica in 1982, when the Central American country moved its embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

After Costa Rica announced the embassy's return to Tel Aviv last August, Egypt, Kuwait, Yemen and Bahrain restored ties with the country.

The ownership of Jerusalem is one of the most sensitive factors regarding the Palestine-Israel issue.

For Palestinians, the ancient city is the third Holy Site of Islam. But the Jews, who believe that their ancestor, King David, founded Jerusalem as the capital of "the Kingdom of Israel" some 3,000 years ago, have said it belongs to their Jewish country.
