Statement by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean on the terrorist attack in Jordan

Statement 
by the
Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean
on the terrorist attack in Jordan 
 
 
 
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM) unreservedly condemns the hideous terrorist attack on the Jordanian military forces, in which six soldiers and security personnel were killed and fourteen left injured.
 
PAM recognizes the important role of Jordan as part of the international effort to counter ISIL and all other terrorist groups and affiliates in the region. Furthermore, PAM reiterates its support to Jordan in its humanitarian commitment to assist refugees and displaced families from the Syrian conflict.
 
PAM takes the opportunity to call on its member parliaments and the international community to take the necessary measures to prevent and suppress the financing of terrorism, terrorist organizations and individual terrorists, in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions 2199 (2015) and 2253 (2015). PAM is also concerned about the current impasse as far as the peace process for the future of Syria is concerned. 
 
PAM expresses its sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims, to the Government and Parliament of Jordan, and wish a full recovery to those who were injured.
