United Nations Envoy for Syria Geir Pedersen and Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry
The meeting was hosted by Jordan on Monday and was attended by foreign ministers of member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and those of Jordan, Iraq and Egypt.
The attendees concluded that the return of Syrian refugees to their country was of the utmost importance.
There are approximately 5.5 million Syrian refugees who fled their countries since the beginning of the conflict in 2011 registered in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt, according to the UN.
Shoukry informed Pedersen of the procedures agreed upon to solve the Syrian crisis, emphasizing the need for coordination with the Syrian government.
The two officials also discussed the role of the UN and its efforts to end the crisis and agreed to continue communication and consultation.
