2013-09-09 14:34:55
WAM AMMAN, 9th September, 2013 (WAM) -- Dr. Abdullah Al Ensour, Jordanian Prime Minister, and Valerie Amos, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, who is currently visiting Jordan as part of her tour of the region, discussed today the Syrian refugee problem and its challenges and negative effects on the economies of the host countries.

Jordan News Agency, PETRA, said that Dr. Al Ensour briefed Ms. Amos on the burden shouldered by Jordan as it hosts about 600,000 refugees. He stated that the asylum process for Syrians in the face of limited resources formed the major challenges to the service sectors, the infrastructure, education, health and employment opportunities in the communities hosting the refugees, especially in the north of Jordan.

And on developments relating to the Syrian crisis, the Jordanian Prime Minister stressed that his country is ready for all eventualities, including a large influx of refugees to Jordan in the event of a military strike against Syria.
