AMMAN, May 26 (Xinhua) -- Jordan declared on Monday the Syrian ambassador persona non grata and demanded his departure within 24 hours, the official Petra news agency reported.

"The Jordanian Foreign Ministry handed the Syrian embassy in Amman a memo on Monday including the government's decision considering Syrian ambassador Bahjat Suleiman as persona non grata and asked that he leave within 24 hours," Petra quoted Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Sabah Rafi as saying.

The decision was made in response to Suleiman's "repeated abuses" against Jordan and its political leaders and institutions through his personal meetings, remarks to media and posts on social websites despite repeated warnings, the spokeswoman said.
