Toukan said that the decline in aid provided by the international community to Jordan to support the refugees is a consequence of the global political and economic crises.

According to Ministry of Planning data, the deficit amounts to 79 percent, or $1.78 billion.

Toukan said that the government will continue its humanitarian role, providing needed services to Syrian refugees, within the available capabilities, and is committed to hosting refugees until they return to their country voluntarily.

She also said that Jordan is constantly reminding the international community of its responsibility to provide support and funding to the refugees.
