Jordanian Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour denied allegations that Jordan was “interfering” in Syria’s domestic affairs, the World Bulletin website said.

“Jordan has a firm policy of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries,” Ensour said at a Wednesday meeting with Lebanese Interior Minister Nouhad al-Machnouq.

“Jordan calls for a political solution to the Syrian crisis to end bloodshed there,” he said ,according to Jordan’s official news agency.

During his official visit to Amman, Machnouq also met with King Abdullah II who expressed readiness to aid and train the Lebanese army.

“We are one… Jordan is ready to offer the Lebanese army all its needs of arms and military equipment, including free training at all our bases,” sources quoted King Abdullah II as saying in comments to al-Mustaqbal local newspaper on Thursday.

Lebanon’s General Security chief, General Abbas Ibrahim, accompanied the minister on his visit.

Meanwhile, Jordan will not launch a ground assault against militants of the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) takfiri group, Jordan’s parliament speaker said Wednesday.

“Jordan will pursue its fight against terrorism and the ISIL,” Atef Tarawneh, speaker of Jordan’s House of Representative (the lower house of parliament), said while welcoming Czech President Miloš Zeman.

Zeman, for his part, reiterated his country’s support for Jordan’s fight against “terrorism.”

He said the Czech Republic, as a European Union member, was keen to help coordinate the fight against terrorism.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II had earlier vowed to wage an “unrelenting war” against ISIL following the circulated execution earlier this month of a Jordanian pilot by the takfiri group.

Jordan, already a member of a U.S.-led anti-ISIL coalition, has carried out several airstrikes against the terrorist group since the pilot’s murder.
