Jordan reiterates support for UN efforts to resolve Syrian crisis

Pedersen commended cooperation with Jordan with regard to resolving the Syrian crisis, saying the UN highly values Jordan's humanitarian role towards the Syrian refugees.

Jordan on Tuesday voiced its support for the UN efforts on the Syrian crisis in a way that preserves Syria’s unity and territorial integrity, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

The remarks were made by Minister of Foreign Affairs Ayman Safadi at a meeting with United Nations Special Envoy to Syria Geir Pedersen in Amman Tuesday, where the two sides discussed efforts to reach a political solution to the Syrian crisis.

Any solution should ensure restoring the stability and security to Syria and create the necessary environment that allows for the voluntary return of the Syrian refugees to their home as soon as possible as Jordan is home to 1.3 million Syrian refugees, Safadi said.

The minister said Jordan was keen on enhancing the fruitful partnership with the UN to work together to attain peace and stability in the Middle East.
