AMMAN — Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour on Tuesday stressed the importance of respecting soldiers, especially those who were wounded in the line of duty.

During a meeting with several injured veterans at the Hashemite Charity Society for Soldiers with Special Needs, attended by the society’s president, HH Prince Mired, Ensour said the Cabinet approved a decision to exempt the cars of 79 servicemen with disabilities from customs duties.

“A nation that does not respect its soldiers… does not deserve to survive,” the premier said.

Prince Mired thanked Ensour, noting that this is the first visit by a prime minister to the society.
