JORDAN’S MINISTRY OFFICIALS DISCUSS WITH BRITAIN, GERMANY AND CANADA, RESETTLEMENT OF SYRIANS
AMMAN, Jordan, Director of International Relations and Organisations, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Khaled al-Shawabkeh, met with ambassadors of Britain, Germany and Canada, in Amman, to discuss the resettlement of 422 Syrian citizens, who were allowed entry to Jordan, after these countries pledged to resettle them within a maximum period of three months.
The meeting discussed steps to be taken, to complete their resettlement process, in cooperation with the United Nations.
Official spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign and Expatriates Affairs, Mohammed al-Kayed, said that, the government authorised, for humanitarian reasons, the United Nations, to regulate the passage of the Syrian citizens, who were working in civil defence, in areas controlled by the opposition in southern Syria, and fled to the occupied Golan, after the Syrian army mounted a large-scale offensive on opposition-controlled areas.
The coordination of the operation was also discussed, prior to its start, with the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres and other officials of the international organisation, which regulates and supervises the passage of Syrian nationals until they are resettled.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), issued a statement, expressing its thanks to Jordan for allowing the passage of the 422 Syrian citizens, and said, it had received them and taken care of them until they were resettled.
