King of Jordan Links Syria Border Opening to Better Security
Local Editor

Jordan's King Abdullah II said he is "deeply concerned" with the situation in southern Syria and that his country's border with Syria would only reopen "when the right security conditions materialize on the ground."

Abdullah second

The monarch told the state news agency Petra in an interview published Thursday that the military campaign against Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the Takfiri terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group] in Syria "could push it south toward Jordan" and that Jordan's top priority is to protect its border.

The king also says that a cease-fire for southwest Syria, brokered in July by Jordan, Russia and the US, could be replicated elsewhere in Syria.

Meanwhile, Russia proposes creating "de-escalation zones" in several areas of Syria.
Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov met with Abdullah in Jordan this week to discuss the requirements for such a zone in southern Syria.
