By : JD

Jordan Daily –  Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi met his Iranian counterpart on Wednesday in Geneva, where they discussed ways to end the Israeli offensive in Gaza and the smuggling of drugs and weapons from Syria, the Jo state news agency, Petra reported.

Ayman Safadi and Hossein Amir Abdollahian, who were attending a U.N. refugee forum, agreed on the need for an immediate ceasefire and urgent humanitarian aid to Gaza.

They also called on the international community to take a firm stance to stop the Israeli aggression and uphold its legal and moral obligations towards the Palestinian people, the agency said.

Safadi warned of the security threat posed by the ongoing attempts to smuggle drugs and weapons from Syria to Jordan, and vowed to take all necessary measures to protect the kingdom’s borders and pursue the perpetrators.

He said those responsible for a recent attack on Jordanian security forces near the Syrian border, which killed one officer and wounded another, would not escape justice and would pay for their crime.
