Vienna - Morocco supports the Syrian people and the State of Jordan which hosts nearly one million refugees, said Ali El Mhamdi, Morocco's permanent representative to international organizations in Vienna.
Speaking on Friday in Vienne at the meeting of the Contact Group with the Mediterranean Partners for Cooperation, initiated by the organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on the situation of Syrian refugees in Jordan, El Mhamdi recalled that Morocco responded to the call for help launched by the Jordanian authorities by the setting up of a medical field hospital in the Zaatari camp on the Jordanian-Syrian border.
Operational since August 2012, the hospital has 100 beds and a staff of 135 physicians and nurses.
Moroccan NGOs supply the hospital with medicine and foodstuffs.
The ambassador also underlined that King Mohammed VI expressed personally, on October 18, 2012, his solidarity with Jordan and his compassion with the Syrian people by visiting the Zaatari camp to enquire about working conditions in the hospital and the health condition of several refugees and their kids.
