   AMMAN, Jan. 3 (Xinhuanet) -- Iraq's neighboring countries will meet in Amman on Thursday to discuss the pre-election situation in the war-torn country, Jordanian Foreign Ministry spokesman Rajab Suqeiri said Monday.

   Iraq's six neighboring countries, namely, Jordan, Turkey, Iran, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Syria, as well as  representatives of Egypt, Bahrain and the United Nations will take part in the one-day meeting, he told reporters.

   The meeting would be on the level of foreign ministers, except Iran which will send a delegation led by assistant foreign minister for international and legal affairs, Suqeiri said.

   The spokesman said the ministerial meeting would be capped by issuing the Amman Declaration.

   On the Jan. 30 Iraqi elections, he stressed Jordan's position on holding free and fair elections with the participation of all sectors of the Iraqi society.

   He said his country would provide all facilities to the Iraqi overseas in Jordan during the election process.  Enditem
