Jordan to reopen border with Syria

Jordan intends to reopen its border with Syria once the technical details of such a move are worked out, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

"In principle, we want to open borders. A technical committee is meeting right now to agree details that will allow us to open borders," Sputnik cited the  Jordanian Foreign Minister as saying.

Safadi stressed that Jordan did not initiate the closure of the border. He added that when the parties agree on technical details, they will move on to another step

Jordan closed its border with Syria in 2015 after an array of militants, including ISIS, seized large swathes of territory on the Syrian side.
