AMMAN, July 27 (Xinhua) -- Jordan's Interior Minister Mazen Faraya on Tuesday stressed the necessity for reoperating Jaber border crossing with Syria at full capacity during a phone call with his Syrian counterpart Mohammed Al Rahmoun.

Rahmoun welcomed the gesture, expressing Damascus's readiness to take the necessary measures in this regard, according to a statement by the Prime Ministry.

The two sides agreed that executive authorities in the border crossing shall enhance field coordination to move closer to re-operating the border crossing at full capacity, to achieve the envisioned goals in line with the approved medical protocol.

Last August, the Jordanian government temporally closed the Jaber border due to a noticeable increase of COVID-19 infections, and gradually resumed truck traffic and limited the number of travelers crossing later.
