Amman, June 3 (Petra) -- Minister of Foreign and Expatriate Affairs, Nasser Judeh, on Tuesday, met with former Greek prime minister and president of the Socialist International, George Papandreou, and discussed with him the latest developments in the region and the situation in Syria.

Judeh highlighted the repercussions of the Syrian crisis on Jordan, which hosts more than about 1.3 million Syrian refugees on its territory and the size of economic burden borne by the Kingdom.

The minister stressed that the international community must provide further support to the Kingdom to continue providing humanitarian and relief services for the Syrian refugees.

He renewed Jordan's call for reaching a political solution that preserves the safety and security and the territorial integrity of Syria with the participation of all components of the Syrian people .

The talks also touched on the importance of pushing the peace process forward to its goal which is the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital on pre-1967 lines, according to international terms of reference.

Papandreou hailed Jordan's role under the leadership of His Majesty the King, in dealing with the repercussions of regional issues and His Majesty's efforts in entrenching security, stability and peace.
