Jordanian Interior Minister Mazen Faraiah confirmed, during launching ceremony of the First Euro-Arab Border Security Conference that his country still bears the responsibility of hosting more than 1.3 million Syrian refugees. noting that this entails security, social and economic burdens.

Al- Faraiah said: “dealing with Syrian refugee issue should be on three parallel axes. 

The first is to provide support to Syrian refugees in their areas of refuge, where the international community should assume its responsibilities towards the reality of refugee crisis.

The second is to promote the idea of ​​resettling part of the refugees in other countries based on shared responsibility. 

The third is to engage in an international movement that restores the security, political and economic stability in Syria, which will ensure the safe return of these refugees, the minister added.”

The conference, which will be held in the Jordanian capital, Amman, aims to develop an international dialogue on border security and prevent migrant smuggling, human trafficking, cross-border crime and terrorism.

The Secretary-General of the Council of Arab Interior Ministers, Muhammad bin Ali Koman, said that holding this conference comes in the context of cooperation between the Council of Arab Interior Ministers and the European Union to confront security challenges, foremost of which are terrorism, drug trafficking and clandestine immigration.

the European Union Commissioner for Neighborhood and Enlargement Olivér Várhelyi, said that the partnership between the European Border and Coast Guard Agency and the Council of Arab Interior Ministers is “useful and promising”, due to what the Arab world is witnessing of important population movements. 

It is noteworthy that the Assad regime, its Russian and Iranian allies, and the Islamic State have caused the displacement of millions of Syrians from various Syrian governorates since 2011 towards the liberated north, and towards the neighboring countries of Syria. Millions of refugees refuse to return to Syria until the reasons that led to their displacement.
