FM, ICRC President discuss refugees

Amman, Minister of Foreign and Expatriates Affairs, Ayman Safadi, and President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Peter Maurer, Wednesday discussed cooperation between Jordan and the movement on the issue of refugees.

Safadi and Maurer emphasized the importance of this cooperation in terms of meeting refugees’ humanitarian needs.

Maurer commended Jordan’s humanitarian stances towards refugees in spite of the burdens it shoulders as a result.

Safadi said the international community should continue shouldering its responsibility towards the Kingdom, as its key sectors are substantially affected due to the huge burden of hosting Syrian refugees.

He added that Jordan is encouraging refugees to willingly return to their homes and called on the international community to activate efforts to reach a solution that allows Syrians to do so.
