Jordan and Iraq have historical ties, as both trace back their heritage to the British colonial administration. In the aftermath of World War-I, the British created two states i.e. Iraq and Jordan.
In the early 1920s, the two states were given under the care of the two brothers, Abdullah and Faisal, sons of Sharif Hussein ibn Ali of the Hashemite tribe. Both countries share commonality in context of cultural and religious affinity; Sunni Muslim population.
