FM, UNHCR officials discuss plight of Syrian refugees
Amman, Sept 11 (Petra) -- Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh on Tuesday discussed with U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres and UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie, developments in Syria and the humanitarian repercussions of the conflict on the region's countries, including Jordan.

Judeh highlighted the services provided by Jordan to Syrian refugees who fled their country due to the ongoing violence.

Jordan, he said, will continue under directives of His Majesty King Abdullah II to offer services to Syrian brethren, despite the lack of resources, mainly in the energy and water fields.

The minister urged the international community to support the Kingdom in hosting the refugees. He also valued aid provided by Arab and other world countries as well as international organizations.

Judeh reiterated the need to find a political solution to the Syrian crisis that puts an end to violence and bloodshed.

He also urged the international community to shoulder its responsibilities and support regional states to cope with the humanitarian fallout of the Syrian crisis.

The UN commissioner said Jordan is a regional stabilizing force and urged the international community to assist the Kingdom to accommodate Syrian refugees.

The foreign minister accompanied Guterres and Jolie on a visit to the Zaatari camp during which they looked into educational and health services offered to Syrian refugees.
