Jordanian King refuses Syrian refugee settlement at expense of Jordanians

Addustour Newspaper's Chief Editor Mohammad Hasan Tal conducted an interview with His Majesty King Abdullah II that focused on His Majesty's vision on local issues, current regional and international developments as well as Jordan's stance towards them.

Responding to a question about Jordan's shouldering a huge burden as a result of hosting Syrian refugees, King Abdullah said: "What Jordan has been providing refugees, whether our brotherly Syrians or others, is something that bigger and wealthier nations have failed to do. No one can question the noble humanitarian role of our country in this regard and the burdens undertaken by Jordanians, who have set a brilliant example to the entire world as they share their resources with their Syrian brethren.

Everybody knows that Jordan is shouldering a huge responsibility in the region on behalf of the entire world. However, we have reached our limits.

Despite all difficulties, Jordan is doing its utmost to help refugees, but that will under no circumstances be at the expense of the livelihood of Jordanians and their security."
