Ammon News - NEW YORK (Petra) – Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate Affairs Nasser Judeh took part on Tuesday in a consultative meeting of Arab foreign ministers in New York, held on the sidelines of the 68th Session of the UN General Assembly.

The meeting, convened by Arab League Secretary General Nabil Eraby, discussed the latest developments related to the Syrian crisis, mainly the US-Russia agreement on Syria's chemical weapons as well as contacts underway to hold the Geneva 2 Conference to find a political solution to the Syrian crisis.

Judeh highlighted Jordan's stance which calls finding a political solution to the Syrian crisis that preserves the country's unity and security.

The minister spoke about the humanitarian repercussions of the Syrian crisis, mainly on Jordan, which hosts around 600,000 Syrian refugees and provides them with services despite the challenges that its own economy is facing.

He urged the international community to shoulder its responsibility to enable the Kingdom to continue playing its humanitarian role towards the refugees.

Judeh also voiced Jordan's support to the United States' peace efforts and its sponsorship of the Palestinian-Israeli peace talks, which he said, should lead to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state as per the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

He said the establishment of an independent Palestinian state is a top Jordanian national interest, noting that final status issues, including Jerusalem, security, water, borders and refugees, are linked to Jordan's vital interests.

The minister voiced Jordan's concern over the repeated Israeli provocations in occupied East Jerusalem, adding such acts would undermine the peace efforts.
