GCC member states offered financial support to Jordan as it faces slower GDP growth and higher energy prices, The Jordan Times reported.

Gulf countries have "always" supported Jordan "and will do so to help it overcome temporary financial difficulties", Mohammed Abu Hammour said on Sunday (July 10th).

Last week Saudi Finance Minister Ibrahim al-Assaf visited Jordan and was briefed on Jordan's 2.2% GDP growth, as well as challenges meeting its energy demand after the natural-gas pipeline from Egypt was cut by saboteurs.

Last month Saudi Arabia provided Jordan grant of 283 million Jordanian dinars ($400 million) to help finance capital projects.
