The former head of the interior Ministry of Jordan called on the Arab League to adopt a unified position on Syria

Former Minister of internal Affairs of Jordan, the President of the Jordanian society for science and culture and the General coordinator of the Arab group of the world Samir al-Habashneh called on the Arab League and Arab countries to define a common position on the Syrian issue.

"I wish this issue was resolved between the Arab countries to the Arab League and the Arabs identified a common position on the Syrian issue," he said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

In his opinion, Jordan's policy towards Syria has two sides, one of which is the traditional position of Jordan at the outset of the war the desire for peace in Syria and ending the war that all parties participated in the dialogue in Syria and to ensure their participation in the organization of the future of their country and its reconstruction, while Jordan wants to keep the unity of the Syrian territories without foreign interference.

"We don't want Syria was a field for information of regional and international accounts, and want the solution were Syrian-Syrian, which corresponds to the interests of Syria and its people. On the other hand, we must take into account the national interests of Jordan, whether the security or economic interests, which is inseparable from the desire to end the war in Syria," added al Habashneh.

Armed conflict in Syria lasts since 2011. At the end of 2017, it was announced victory over the terrorist group ISIS ("Islamic state")* in Syria and Iraq. In some areas of countries continue to sweep from the militants. At the moment the most important is a political settlement, restoration of Syria, and the return of refugees.
