BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – Jordan is preparing to reopen its vast border with Syria after a successful round of talks with Russia, Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi told the Sputnik News Agency on Thursday.
Safadi told Sputnik that the Jordanian regime is working out some technical details at this time.
“In principle, we want to open borders. A technical committee is meeting right now to agree details that will allow us to open borders,” Safadi said.
Safadi also said that Jordan was not responsible for closing the border; however, due to the ongoing war in Syria, the crossings no longer became safe.
No timeline was given for reopening the border, but it is likely to happen in the next two months, as both Damascus and ‘Amman are anxious to resume trade and commerce between the two capitals.
