Jordan will downgrade its diplomatic representation with Qatar, it said on Tuesday, after examining the "cause of the crisis" between Doha and several other Arab states.
Jordan also revoked the license of Doha-based TV channel Al Jazeera, government spokesman Mohammad al Momani said.
Saudi Arabia is a key financial backer of Jordan.
Momani said in a statement that the decision was made to ensure regional stability, coordinate the policies of Arab countries and "end the crises in our region."
