Senate president meets Custodian of the Crown of Romania

Amman, April 16 (Petra)-Senate President, Faisal Fayez, received on Monday Princess Margareta, Custodian of the Crown of Romania, and His Royal Highness Prince Radu, and their accompanying parliamentary delegation.

During the meeting, Fayez lauded the advanced level of Jordanian-Romanian ties in the political, economic and cultural fields, calling for the need to enhance them to achieve interests of both countries and peoples.

Fayez, in the presence of the Second Vice-President of the Senate, Samir Rifai, said Jordan is a model for stability in the Middle East and has countered regional volatilities due to the King's wise leadership and the citizens' awareness.

On the regional tumult, he noted the country was adversely affected by the political and security crises in the region as it hosts about 1.3 million Syrian refugees, and provided them the necessary services, despite the scarcity of its resources and the modest international aid.

Jordan has spent $10.3 billion on the Syrian refugees since the beginning of the crisis and until the end of last year, as it only received a quarter of this amount to address the problem, he pointed out.

On a related context, this situation had a huge economic impact on the citizens' lives and increased the country's debt, he explained.

Fayez called on Romania to increase its investment in Jordan and to work with EU countries to increase aid to the country, a part of which will be directed directly to the state treasury.

The meeting, which was attended by the Romanian ambassador here, reviewed the current situation in the region and means of enhancing bilateral cooperation.

For her part, Princess Margareta expressed her happiness to visit Jordan, and highlighted the importance of bilateral relations in the various fields, especially in the cultural domain, as large numbers of Jordanian students pursue their degrees at Romanian universities.
