MOSCOW, December 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia hopes to maintain closer cooperation with Jordan due to the country’s election as a non-permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a meeting with Jordanian counterpart Nasser Jauda on Monday.
“We value Jordan’s weighty and responsible approach and its role in the region,” Lavrov said, adding “We’ll discuss the situation in Syria and the Palestinian-Israeli settlement.”
“Our contacts are rather timely due to the fact that Jordan is elected as a non-permanent member of the U.N. Security Council,” he said.
“We’ll have an opportunity to discuss bilateral relations that Russian President Vladimir Putin and King Abdullah II of Jordan rivet special attention,” the Russian minister said.
