Tehran, YJC. FM says Jordan is to rule the UN Security Council in the near future.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Nasser Judeh speaking at a press conference after he and his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif discussed mutual concerns in a meeting in Amman said "In today’s meeting with the Iranian Foreign Minister we discussed various regional matters, the challenges we face, as well as measures that should be taken.”

He also pointed to Zarif’s meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan and said "In this meeting important issues were discussed and both sides’ entire concerns were considered,” Mehr News Agency reports.

Judeh also said that his country will adopt the presidency of the United Nations Security Council in the near future.

He maintained that Palestine had been one of the important topics discussed in the meeting and asserted that both countries hold that the Palestinian refugees must be attended to.

The Iranian Foreign Minister in turn stated that both countries hold that the Syrian crisis takes no military solution, but rather the people’s will must be the defining factor.

He further added "The two countries believed that sectarianism and terrorism bring negative consequences for the whole region and that they must be contained.”
