The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ayman Safadi, and Russian Special Presidential Envoy for Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev, discussed on Thursday the possibility of the voluntary return of Syrian refugees to their country.

Safadi voiced Jordan’s support of the voluntary return of Syrian refugees to their homeland and the importance of providing proper conditions for their safe return.

The Minister further stressed the need for creating a safe political, social and economic environment that will encourage their return.

According to Safadi, Jordan will work hand in hand with Russia to find a mutual solution for the Syrian crisis; a solution that maintains the territorial integrity of Syria and provide a safe return of refugees to their country.

On his part, Lavrentiev emphasized the role Jordan has played during the Syrian crisis and its humanitarian efforts in shouldering the burden of the refugee influx during the last seven years.
