Amman, Sep.9 (Petra) — Interior Minister Salama Hammad on Wednesday discussed with head of the International Organisation for Migration’s (IOM) mission to Jordan, Tajma Kurt, aspects of bilateral cooperation, especially those related to limiting the ramifications of refugee crises facing the Kingdom.

During the meeting, Hammad stressed that Jordan will continue to provide health, educational and social support for the refugees across the Kingdom, indicating that the multiple waves of refugees have strained the country’s infrastructure and natural resources, mainly water and energy.

The minister also praised the level of relations between Jordan and the IOM, saying that Jordan is ready to enhance cooperation and coordination with the organization and support it to carry out its humanitarian role.

For her part, Kurt valued Jordan’s cooperation with the organization in addressing difficulties resulting from immigration issues and the protection of migrants and refugees’ rights, despite economic, health and educational difficulties.
