Jordan will keep its borders shut and the United Nations can help Syrians fleeing violence in the south inside their own country, Jordan's foreign minister said on Tuesday.

"There is no presence of displaced people at our border and the movement has been towards the inside," Ayman Safadi also said in a Twitter posting.

The United Nations said earlier on Tuesday that at least 45,000 people had fled fighting in Syria's southwestern Deraa province, heading towards the frontier with Jordan.
