This week Jordan's government announced it was reopening a major border crossing with Syria as well as resuming flights to Damascus from Jordan's capital, Amman. This follows a deal to bring Egyptian natural gas to Lebanon via Jordan and Syria. The World's Marco Werman spoke with Natasha Hall, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, about these developments and what they mean for the region.
