BEIRUT, March 1 — Visiting Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh stressed Friday that his country supports the political solution that guarantees putting an end to bloodshed and violence in Syria.
Following a meeting with Lebanon’s Speaker of the House Nabih Berri, Judeh said that in addition to the bilateral relations between the two countries and means of developing and strengthening them, he mainly discussed with Berri the humanitarian repercussions of the Syrian crisis as Lebanon and Jordan are shouldering a great burden because of the flow of big numbers of displaced Syrians into both countries.
Judeh called for the need to have a transitional stage that preserves unity, security and stability of Syria and dignity of the Syrian people.
He added that talks with Lebanese officials focused on the need to unify the language of communicating with the international community, international organizations and the donor countries to enable states neighboring Syria to deal with those humane repercussions.
Judeh added that Jordan’s position on the displaced Syrians to Jordan is clear “we host them and share with them the little that we have; however, this results in a massive burden on our economy which is already facing a lot of challenges.”
