The recently launched tower renovation project comes within a program to enhance the capabilities of Jordanian border troops to better manage humanitarian operations, funded by the Japanese government, as part of an initiative implemented and supervised by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), a JAF statement said.

Speaking at the ceremony, Nuaimat praised the Japanese government's efforts in its assistance and support for this project, which reflects the "strong and distinguished" partnership between the two countries, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

“This refurbishment project saves time and effort and helps provide comfortable infrastructure to the border guard forces in a way that enables them to carry out their duties,” Nuaimat pointed out.

In turn, the Japanese envoy said this project came within efforts being made to help Jordan achieve security and stability in the region, which is part of supporting partnership between the Japanese government and the JAF, according to Petra.
