MOSCOW, August 18 /TASS/. Russia and Jordan have agreed on the need to work towards the Syrian settlement and observe the cessation of hostilities regime, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday after a visit of Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, where he was received by King Abdullah II of Jordan.
"When discussing the situation in Syria, Russia and Jordan confirmed their commitment to a political settlement of the Syrian crisis on the basis of decisions of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) and the relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"The sides stressed the need to strengthen the cessation of hostilities regime and resolve urgent humanitarian issues, including the problem of Syrian refugees in Syria," the Russian Foreign Ministry went on to say.
It added that the discussion was meaningful and was focused on how to improve coordination of approaches of Moscow and Amman to issues of mutual concern on the Middle East agenda in the context of efforts to promote the Palestinian-Israeli settlement in compliance with international law.
The same day, Bogdanov, who is the Russian president’s Special Representative for the Middle East and Africa, met Jordanian Prime Minister Hani Al-Mulki to discuss the development of reciprocal and multidimensional cooperation between Russia and Jordan.
