AMMAN — Interior Minister Ghaleb Zu’bi on Tuesday met with Vladimir Ivanovich Voronkov, the undersecretary general of the UN Counter-Terrorism Office, and an accompanying delegation, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. 

Zu’bi outlined Jordan’s strategic security plan and its preventive and awareness measures to combat terrorism and extremism. “Jordanians are proud of the level we have reached in combating this plague, which took a collective nature involving our military and security institutions side by side with the rest of society, which have become aware of the dangers of extremism and its destructive impact on the future of the country and its generations,” he said.

The minister stressed the regional situation’s impact on the Jordanian economy, asserting the government’s ongoing work to find “economic and investment horizons” towards recovery.

The meeting was attended by Public Security Department Director General Ahmad Al Faqih, who said that his department constantly seeks to improve conditions at the correction and rehabilitation centres, including providing vocational training for inmates to support them and their families.
