AMMAN — Jordan is a special partner for the EU, and the two see eye-to-eye on foreign policy and human rights, the union’s ambassador to Jordan, Joanna Wronecka, said on Thursday.

Delivering a lecture at the Royal Jordanian National Defence College, Wronecka said the EU is currently working on financing a number of reform initiatives in Jordan in the fields of education and employment by providing direct support to the state budget, and offering assistance in the development of municipal services in the northern region, which is most affected by the Syrian refugee crisis.
