AMMAN, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- Jordan on Sunday voiced rejection of any attempt to interfere in Egypt's internal affairs, asserting its support for efforts to restore stability in the country.
"Jordan fully backs Egypt's efforts to enforce the law on all and to stand up to all bids that seek to harm solidarity and civil peace in the country as well as its security," Jordan's Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said in a joint press conference with his Egyptian counterpart Nabil Fahmy.
"The Kingdom is looking forward to restoring stability fully and quickly in Egypt and that Egypt is back on the track to resume its pivotal and indispensable role in the Arab world and the international arena," he said.
On Syria, Judeh reiterated his country's condemnation of the use of chemical weapons in Damascus, saying perpetrators should be held accountable.
Jordan, he said, still supports a political solution to the Syrian crisis.
Judeh said that talks with Fahmy touched on the latest developments related to the peace process, warning that Israel's unilateral measures concerning settlement construction undermine peacemaking efforts.
The Egyptian minister voiced appreciation of Jordan's support for Egypt.
He added that the security conditions in Sinai are hindering the resumption of pumping natural gas supply to Jordan.
An attack against a gas pipeline in the Egyptian city of Arish in North Sinai led to a complete halt of natural gas supply into the Jordan early July.
The pipeline has been attacked more than 10 times since Egypt's former President Hosni Mubarak was ousted in 2011.
Over the past three years, about 80 percent of the power generated in energy-poor Jordan, which imports some 96 percent of its energy needs annually, relied on the Egyptian gas.
