Jordan- Senate president meets Japanese official

(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Amman, Dec. 11 (Petra)--Senate President Faisal Al-Fayez on Monday met chief of the Japanese House of Councillors, Chuichi Date, on ways to foster bilateral ties and the Mideast developments.

Al-Fayez during talks lauded bilateral economic, political and parliamentary relations, based on mutual respect to serve the two countries' interests.

Jordan, he said, is a model of peace , security and stability in the Middle East though it battles regional volatilities and terror factions.

"Jordan is unique in its visions, stances and aspirations, embodied in its tremendous efforts to host and tackle the Syrian refugee ordeal," he pointed out.

He highlighted the political Mideast woes, in which the Palestinian cause is still unresolved and the current Israeli government rejects the re-launch of the stalled peace process.

This situation is further complicated by the U.S. decision to relocate its country's embassy to the occupied Jerusalem and to recognize this holy city as the capital of Israel, he added. This US step violates relevant international resolutions on Jerusalem and the Palestinian cause, he told the Japanese guest.

The conflicts ravaging Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Libya helped create an appropriate environment for terrorist powers to prosper, he affirmed.

These volatilities had a negative impact on Jordan, which currently hosts over a million Syrian refugees and offers them necessary services, he said.

The ramifications of the Syrian refugee ordeal are embodied in the economic burdens it faces and Jordan needs Tokyo's support to overcome these rigorous challenges and to press ahead with its key role in countering terrorism, to provide services to Syrian refugees and to propagate the culture of peace, he underlined.

Al- Fayez lauded Japan's economic aid to the Kingdom at critical times and stressed the need to increase Japanese investments in the country, urging Tokyo to push Israel to resume the stalled peace process to help Palestinians establish their sovereign state with east Jerusalem as its capital.

The Japanese official on his part lauded Jordan's key role to achieve Mideast peace and stability and added the two countries share political stances on resolving crises in the region.
