AMMAN – Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh and his Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu on Sunday reiterated a call for finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria.
The two ministers urged the international community to shoulder its responsibility in offering assistance to Syria's neighboring countries, which continue to receive thousands of refugees from the war-torn country, the official Jordanian news agency said.
They also discussed bilateral relations and latest developments on the regional stage.
Davutoglu and Judeh underlined the importance of coordination between Turkey and Jordan with respect to issues of mutual concern.
The two ministers attended earlier Sunday a conference of Syria's neighboring countries in Zaatari refugee camp, in northeastern Jordan.
There are around 1.3 million Syrian refugees in Jordan, including 600,000 refugees registered with the United Nations.
