JORDANIAN PM ARRIVES IN JAPAN, MEETS CHAIRMAN OF PARLIAMENT’S SECURITY COMMITTEE

Jordanian Prime Minister, Hani Al Mulki, who started an official visit to Japan on Wednesday, met in Tokyo with Chairman of the Japanese Parliament’s Security Committee, Tsuyoshi Yamaguchi, and other members of parliament.

During the meeting, which was attended by Minister of Planning and International Cooperation, Imad Fakhoury, Minister of Foreign and Expatriates Affairs, Ayman Safadi, and Minister of Finance, Omar Malhas, Al Mulki affirmed Jordan’s stance on the political and security situation in the Middle East, regional crises, as well as their repercussions on Jordan.

He said, throughout history, Jordan received waves of forced migrations, the last of which were 1.3 million Syrian refugees, and noted that, such mass migrations have posed economic, security and social challenges to the Kingdom.

Chairman of the committee and members of the delegation, that comprised two former defence ministers, voiced understanding of Jordan’s political and economic situation, noting that, they will work through parliament, to ensure continued support to Jordan, to enable it to continue its role in the region and provide services to the refugees.

They also highlighted the importance of continued support to Jordan, under the leadership of King Abdullah II, to achieve security, peace and stability in the region.

Earlier, Al Mulki arrived in the Japanese capital, Tokyo, during which he will hold talks with Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe and other senior Japanese officials
