Romania and Jordan share a link through the 13,000 Jordanians who have pursued higher education in our country, 5000 of them being married to Romanian women who have integrated into the Jordanian culture. The number of children resulting from these mixed marriages can be multiplied by at least four, thus increasing the number of Romanian speakers in Jordan.
His Excellency Sufyan Qudah says that many Jordanian graduates in Romania occupy high official positions in the state, within the government, government agencies or the military. And this reflects a lot on the common interest and cultural exchanges between the two countries.
In a region characterized by chaos, the Jordanian kingdom has become a place of refuge for Palestinians, Syrians, Iraqis so that almost 35% of the population is represented by refugees from other countries. And this is a big challenge.
Refugees receive free education in Jordan and free access to the health system, and Jordan has been able to create 120,000 jobs for them despite the enormous pressure on the social system.
I briefly presented the topics of the interview conducted by Cătălin-Ștefan Popa and Alexandru Florea with E.S. Sufyan Qudah, ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in Romania, whom we invite you to follow.
