JORDAN NO LONGER CAPABLE TO BEAR THE BURDEN OF SYRIAN CRISIS – INTERIOR MINISTER

Amman – Jordan’s Minister of Interior Ghalib Zoubi said that the cost of hosting Syrian refugees in Jordan is not limited to shelters and relief services, but also includes security and protection challenges.

According to Jordanian news agency (Petra), the Jordanian minister made the remarks during a meeting with visiting Canadian Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Minister Ahmed Hussen, who is in Amman to discuss the latest developments in the Syrian crisis and ways to fight terrorism.

Jordanians share their resources with Syrian and other refugees, despite the limited resources in the Kingdom, the minister told the Canadian official.

He added that Jordan is not capable to carry out this duty anymore, because of the huge burden added by the refugees and because of the absence of any possibilities to find a solution to the Syrian crisis.

The Canadian official, on his part, said that Jordan is doing a great job in hosting large numbers of Syrian refugees. He also reiterated his country’s support to the Jordanian policies, while promising more support to countries affected by the Syrian refugees crisis.
