 U.S. to Give Jordan $25 Million Worth of Wheat for Resale

The United States is giving Jordan about $25 million worth of wheat for resale, with the money to be used for improving agricultural productivity.

The U.S. agriculture secretary, Tom Vilsack, and Jordan's planning minister, Imad Fakhoury, signed the agreement involving 100,000 metric tons of wheat Sunday.

Vilsack said in a statement the food assistance is meant to help ease the economic burden Jordan faces as it hosts more than 600,000 Syrian civil war refugees, out of nearly 4 million who fled to neighboring countries in the past four years.
