AMMAN — Senate President Faisal Fayez on Monday commended the "high level" of relations between Jordan and Romania in the political, economic and cultural fields, calling for further enhancing them.

Fayez made his remarks during a meeting with Princess Margareta, crown princess and custodian of the crown of Romania, Prince Radu and the accompanying parliamentary delegation, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

He said that Jordan is one of the most affected countries by regional political and security crises, especially as the Kingdom presents services and aid to 1.3 million Syrian refugees despite its scarce resources and the low international support.

The Senate president estimated the cost of the assistance provided to Syrians since the outbreak of the crisis until the end of 2017 at more than $10.3 billion, highlighting that it received no more than 25 per cent of the total cost.

The Kingdom therefore incurred big economic repercussions that affected the daily lives of Jordanians and contributed to higher general debts, Fayez pointed out, calling on Romania to increase its investments in the Kingdom and to work with EU countries to increase assistance to Jordan.

For her part, Princess Margareta expressed happiness for visiting Jordan and highlighted the importance of bilateral ties at all levels, especially in the cultural field, referring to the "large" number of Jordanian students at Romanian universities.
