The Jordanian parliament discussed on Friday the possibility of opening a third border crossing with Syria in order to promote more trade and commerce with Damascus.
The purpose of the third crossing would allow for both countries to take advantage of their borders with Iraq to import and export goods in the region.
It is worth noting that so far Syria and Jordan possess two crossings: Nassib and Jaber.
The Nassib Crossing has been opened for nine months now and both Syria and Jordan have managed to increase their trade a great deal as a result of this move.
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) retook the Nassib Crossing last Summer after they launched a massive offensive inside the Daraa, Damascus, and Al-Quneitra governorates in southern Syria.
Following the capture of the Nassib Crossing, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan announced that they were preparing to reopen the border with Syria for the first time since 2015.
In addition to reopening the Nassib Crossing, the Jordanian government made the decision shortly after to also reopen Jaber Crossing, which was closed during the Syrian Conflict.
Jordan and Syria are continuously working to fully restore their ties and with the reopening of their border crossings, the two nations are on the path to do so.
