Lebanese-Jordanian talks on opening Nassib Crossing


As part of a tour to Arab countries delegated by President Michel Aoun, foreign minister Jibran Bassil met yesterday with his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi and discussed with him bilateral relations, regional affairs and trade exchange. In a press conference following the meeting, Bassil hoped the Nassib Crossing will open soon to restore trade movement between the two countries through neighboring Syria. Safadi for his part, stressed that the reopening of the main border crossing, closed for three years now, will follow agreement on all necessary logistic arrangements. “We repeatedly said we want open borders between the two countries, and we indicated that technical negotiations were underway, and that the borders will be restored when the technical committees complete their work in order to ensure the interests of both sides,” Safadi explained. This statement comes after the Syrian ministry of transportation announced on September 29 that the Nassib Crossing will reopen on October 10 after the completion of logistic preparations on the Syrian side.
