AMMAN — Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh on Thursday said Jordan, through its membership in the UN Security Council, will not spare any effort to support Libya and its people.

Addressing the 2nd International Ministerial Conference to Support Libya, which was held in Rome on Thursday with the participation of foreign ministers from 43 countries, Judeh noted that the Kingdom has been committed to supporting Libya since the start of the Libyan revolution.

“Jordan was one of the first countries to recognise the Libyan Transitional Council,” he said, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

The minister highlighted Jordan’s “qualified and trained cadres who are willing to extend a helping hand to Libyans, especially in the area of police work, local government, governance and educational training”.

He called on the international community to support national dialogue in Libya and efforts to draft the constitution.

On the sidelines of the conference, Judeh met with Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan and discussed means to boost cooperation between the two countries, Petra reported.
