(MENAFN- Jordan Times) AMMAN - Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi on Thursday held a telephonic call with Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Abdullah Al Yahya and voiced the Kingdom's condolences over the victims who lost their lives after a fire broke out in Mangaf.

Safadi expressed Jordan's solidarity with Kuwait under this difficult circumstance, according to a Ministry statement.

The two ministers stressed the "deep-rooted" relations between Jordan and Kuwait, and ongoing efforts to further enhance them in the implementation of directives by his majesty King Abdullah and Kuwaiti Emir sheikh Mishal Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah.

A fire in Kuwait killed 49 people, all Indian nationals when it ripped through a building housing nearly 200 foreign workers on Wednesday.

The blaze, which broke out in the six-storey building south of Kuwait City at around dawn, also left dozens injured.

The official Kuwait News Agency quoted Health Minister Ahmed Al Awadhi as saying hospitals had received 56 people injured in the fire in the Mangaf area, which is heavily populated with migrant labourers.
