Justice minister meets Hungarian counterpart

Amman, April 16 (Petra)-Justice Minister Awad al-Mashqaba received on Monday Hungarian counterpart, Laszlo Trochani, who is currently visiting Jordan, for talks aimed to enhance cooperation in judicial and legal fields between the two friendly countries.

During the meeting, the two ministers discussed exchanging expertise, especially in the judicial field.

"Jordan supports efforts to achieve security and stability in the region to enjoy peace after decades of conflict," al-Mashqaba said.

To achieve stability home, he highlighted wisdom of the Hashemite leadership, role of the security apparatus and Jordanians' awareness to preserve the country's security.

The crisis in the region reflected negatively on Jordan, which reached its maximum capacity of hosting Syrian refugees, he told the guest.

On a related context, he pointed out the Kingdom hosts more than 1.3 million Syrian refugees, which drains its available resources, financial resources, health, educational, water infrastructure, as well as the huge burden on the justice facilities.

During the meeting, al-Mashqaba stressed the importance of enhancing joint cooperation to counter the common challenges.

To achieve this goal, he said Jordan has already joined many countries in ratifying the United Nations Convention against Terrorism, and other accords to counter cross-border crimes.

He also cited Jordan's initiatives to reform the judicial apparatus, to bolster the rule of law and to pass new legislatures to boost social-driven rehabilitation.

On the ministry's e-services, he said these bids aim to facilitate judicial and administrative measures at the country's courts.

For his part, the Hungarian official stressed his country's keenness to strengthen cooperation with Jordan in the judicial and legal fields and exchange of expertise.

"We view Jordan as a friendly country and Hungary supports Amman to counter the challenges it faces, especially the repercussions of the Syrian crisis," Trochani said.

He also highlighted the bilateral cooperation in the field of education as more than 400 Jordanian students pursue degrees annually thanks to Hungarian governments' scholarships.

On the war on terrorism, he stressed Hungary's appreciation of the Jordanian role in countering this phenomenon.
