Jordan denies 'interfering' in Syrian affairs

AMMAN (AA) – Jordanian Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour has denied allegations that Jordan was "interfering" in Syria's domestic affairs.

"Jordan has a firm policy of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries," Ensour said at a Wednesday meeting with Lebanese Interior Minister Nouhad al-Machnouq.

Jordan, he said, calls for a "political solution to the Syrian crisis to end bloodshed there," according to Jordan's official news agency.

Since 2011, Syria has groaned under a brutal civil war that has pitted troops loyal to President Bashar al-Assad against heavily-armed opposition forces.

Tens of thousands have been killed and millions displaced over the course of the four-year conflict.
