As the third week of the teachers' strike is about to end, media spokesman for the Jordanian Teachers Syndicate, Nour Al-Deen Nadeem has called the government for a new "real" dialogue session as His Majesty King Abdullah II ordered.

In a press statement he made on Wednesday, September 25, 2019, Nadeem said that the previous sessions may have failed because of the mismanagement of the dialogue, not due to the principle of the dialogue, calling for the need to make the dialogue serious to end this strike, as "if it lasts, it wouldn't be in the interest of anyone."

He added that the dialogue will end with better results if it was between two parties, namely the government and the Syndicate.

"Students' interests are over and above any consideration as His Majesty said before," Nadeem noted, stressing the need to improve the teachers' living conditions and meet their demands because "they are part of this country."
