Ammon News - Minister of Interior, Mazen Faraya, on Wednesday met in Istanbul with his Turkish counterpart, Suleyman Soylu, on the sidelines of the Interpol General Assembly's meetings, which saw Jordan's participation.

The discussions went over ways to enhance aspects of Jordanian-Turkish cooperation, especially in the field of combating terrorism and crime, in addition to the refugee issue and the responsibilities entrusted to the two countries as a result of hosting a large number of refugees, according to a ministry's statement.

During the meeting, Faraya stressed the "strong, deep-rooted" Jordanian-Turkish relations, whose foundations were laid by the two countries' wise leaderships in various fields.

Faraya stressed the need to move forward in building, supporting and strengthening the bilateral ties, especially in the security and economic fields in a way that achieves common interests.

Jordan, he said, has faced throughout its history many waves of refugees, which put "remarkable" pressure on its limited resources and capabilities.

The Syrian refugee crisis imposed a "remarkable" burden on the Kingdom's various vital, service and security sectors, which requires the international community to assume its responsibilities towards Jordan to carry out its humanitarian duties towards refugees on behalf of the entire world, according to Faraya.

For his part, Soylu affirmed his country's keenness to strengthen bilateral cooperation and open "wider" areas to enhance the existing relations, especially in the security and economic fields.

At the end of the meeting, the two ministers agreed to maintain contact and coordination on all issues of common concern, in addition to continuing to make the necessary efforts to counter terrorism and crime of all kinds.
