AMMAN — Lower House Speaker Atef Tarawneh on Wednesday stressed the importance of coordinating Arab parliamentary stances on various issues regardless of political differences, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

During a meeting with Tunisian Ambassador to Jordan Khalid Suhaili, Tarawneh said that “the world associates refugees only to Syrians, and does not remember that Jordan received many refugee exoduses over the decades”, pointing out that there are more than 4 million refugees in total in the Kingdom from different countries. Tarawneh said that the international community did not meet its responsibilities in this regard.

For his part Suhaili appreciated Jordan’s efforts under the leadership of His Majesty King Abdullah, especially in mobilising all efforts to address the US decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The Tunisian ambassador praised the bilateral relations between Tunisia and Jordan, and the constant coordination on a parliamentary level. Suhaili also reviewed Tunisia’s reform process in all areas.
