Jordan Warns Against Military Intervention in Syria, Hayat Says

June 20 (Bloomberg) -- Jordan’s King Abdullah said military intervention to end Syria’s crisis would risk a “total breakdown in regional security,” Al Hayat reported, citing an interview.

An initiative by former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan is still “the best way to develop” a solution to the crisis, the London-based newspaper cited the king as saying.

Jordan, which borders Syria, has opposed suggestions that Syrian rebels fighting to end the rule of President Bashar al-Assad should be supplied with arms. Jordan’s last direct contact with Assad was at the start of the crisis, the king said in the interview.
