(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The Jordanian government affirmed on Monday Jordanian armed forces and security bodies' full readiness to protect the Kingdom from fallouts of latest developments of events in Syrian and Iraq.

"Our armed forces and security agencies are fully prepared to protect Jordan from any repercussions that might result from developments in Syria and Iraq," Jordan News Agency (PETRA) quoted Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh and Interior Minister Hussein Majali as saying during an unofficial meeting with members of the Lower House of Parliament.

Judeh said that current developments in Iraq are linked to the Syrian crisis, adding that he had warned several times of the danger of terrorism and extremism, which spread is a source of concern, and that Jordan is closely monitoring the situation in Iraq.

Furthermore, Judeh uled out an influx of Iraqi refugees into the Kingdom, adding that Iraqis fleeing the violence are heading to the north of the country.


For his part, Majali indicated during the meeting that no Iraqi refugee has so far entered the Kingdom, adding that has contacted the UNHCR commissioner to provide assistance in cooperation with the Iraqi authorities to Iraqis fleeing towards Jordan, said PETRA.

He also added that his country does not intend to open a camp for Iraqi refugees inside its territories, noting that the Interior Ministry has taken all necessary measures to deal with any emergency.

On the latest Israeli violations against the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Judeh said Jordan is following this issue and it has sent letters to the UN Security Council members, UN Secretary General, and the EU to inform them about Israeli daily hostile activities.
