The Ambassador of Republic of Iraq to Amman Meets Jordanian Minister of Labour

The Ambassador of the Republic of Iraq to Amman Mr. Haider Al-Athari met with the Jordanian Minister of Labour, Mr. Nidal Al-Bataineh to discuss bilateral relations and cooperation between the two brotherly countries.

During the meeting they discussed the the file of renewing and granting work permits to Iraqi citizens in Jordan, as well as Iraqi professors in private Jordanian public universities, whose number exceeds (270) teaching staff, hoping that consideration will be given to the humanitarian situation of teachers and Iraqi workers, and give them an opportunity to arrange their conditions with the new decisions of the Ministry in limiting the granting of work permits to non-Jordanians.

On his part, the Minister praised the Iraqi professors, and explained that Jordan is keen not to dispense of them, noting that the Jordanian government is working according to new mechanisms to find effective solutions to reduce the problem of unemployment in the Kingdom.
