Yesterday, Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he discussed with King Abdullah II of Jordan, during his meeting with him in Moscow, the situation in Syria and Afghanistan.
“We hope to exchange views on the most urgent issues, including the normalization of the situation in Syria and the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan,” TASS news agency quoted Putin as saying.
The agency added that the two parties later confirmed the continuation of coordination and consultation between the two countries on various issues of common concern, including Syria, in a manner that serves their interests and contributes to strengthening global peace and security.
Jordanian King Abdullah II said that he considers Russia to play the most supportive role for stability in Syria and the Middle East.
The visit of the King of Jordan to Moscow comes at a time when the Daraa province, which is closest to the kingdom, is witnessing daily shelling and continuous siege by the Assad regime forces and the militias supporting it, since last June.
The security situation in Daraa prompted Jordan to close its border with Syria on July 31, after it was preparing for its full operation.
