AMMAN — Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh participated in the “London 11, Friends of Syria” meeting that was held in the British capital on Thursday to discuss the latest developments in the Syrian crisis.

Judeh expressed his appreciation of the efforts exerted by Lakhdar Brahimi, the UN-Arab League envoy on Syria, who has recently resigned. 

In his remarks, Judeh re-asserted Jordan’s position in support of a political solution for the crisis in Syria, calling for a political transition that would meet the aspirations of the Syrian people and safeguard the territorial integrity of Syria and its political independence. 

Highlighting the large number of Syrians in Jordan, including around 600,000 Syrian refugees, who entered the Kingdom since the outbreak of the Syrian crisis, he called on the international community to shoulder its responsibility in this regard.
