The Embassy of the United States in Amman is the diplomatic mission of the United States of America in Jordan. Located in the Abdoun neighborhood, it plays a crucial role in maintaining bilateral relations between the two countries, focusing on areas such as political, economic, and cultural cooperation. The embassy was established following the United States' recognition of Jordan's independence in 1949.[1]


The United States formally recognized the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan as an independent state on January 31, 1949. This followed Jordan's declaration of independence from British mandate rule on May 25, 1946. The establishment of diplomatic relations was marked by the opening of the American Legation in Jordan. The first diplomatic envoy, Wells Stabler, presented his credentials as Chargé d'Affaires ad interim in Amman on February 18, 1949.[1]

In October 2023, the Embassy of the United States in Amman was poised to facilitate a significant summit involving U.S. President Joe Biden, alongside leaders from Egypt, Palestine, and host nation Jordan, to address escalating tensions in Gaza. The diplomatic engagement was abruptly cancelled by Jordan in response to the intensifying 2023 Israel–Hamas war. The immediate trigger for this cancellation was the devastating Al-Ahli Arab Hospital explosion in Gaza City, which resulted in approximately 500 fatalities. Jordanian officials, including King Abdullah, attributed this attack to Israeli military actions, a claim disputed by Israeli authorities. This incident sparked public outcry in Jordan, leading to protests near the Israeli embassy in Amman.[2][3]
