CAIRO, August 28 (Itar-Tass) - Jordan and Palestine say it is necessary to find a global resolution to the Syrian crisis, which would put an end to the sufferings of the Syrian people.
“King Abdullah II of Jordan and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas discussed the Syrian crisis and called for finding a solution to the problem,” according to a communique, which was circulated in Amman on Wednesday.
The statement was made amidst the West’s preparations for military actions against Syria. The United States and their allies accuse President Bashar al-Assad of using chemical weapons near the Syrian capital on August 21. London has put forth a draft resolution to the U.N. Security Council that will open ways to use force against Syria.
Jordanian Minister of State for Media Affairs Mohammed Al-Momani said the country was not going to be “a launching pad” for a possible military intervention in Syria. The opposition in Jordan came against such military action.
