AMMAN, Feb. 20 (Xinhua) -- Jordan on Monday called on the Danish government to increase its support for Jordan to help address challenges the country is facing.
The remarks were made by Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Imad N. Fakhoury during a meeting with a Danish delegation headed by the Minister for Development Cooperation Ula Tornis, said a statement the ministry emailed to Xinhua.
Fakhoury urged the Danish government to increase its support of Jordan by making an optimal benefit of the Danish- Arab Partnership Program of 2017-2021 and focusing on programs of economic opportunities and employment.
In addition, he urged to enhance the implementation of Jordan Response Plan to the Syrian Crisis 2017-2019 through the World Bank's concessional financing facility to reduce the costs of borrowing for development.
This is due to the pivotal role that Jordan plays in enhancing regional and world security, peace and stability, and in fighting extremism and terrorism.
Jordan, he said, reached the point of saturation in its ability to host Syrian refugees on behalf of the world.
It is of utmost importance that the international community continues to carry out its commitments and pledges to give sufficient support to Jordan, so that it can enhance its resilience and continue to render relevant services.
Tornis stressed that the continued support of Jordan is a priority to Denmark. She confirmed that her country would continue its humanitarian assistance and support to refugee hosting communities.
