Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh and his Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu on Sunday reiterated a call for finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria.

The two ministers urged the international community to shoulder its responsibility in offering assistance to Syria's neighboring countries, which continue to receive thousands of refugees from the war-torn country, the official Jordanian news agency said.

They also discussed bilateral relations and latest developments on the regional stage.

Davutoglu and Judeh underlined the importance of coordination between Turkey and Jordan with respect to issues of mutual concern.

The two ministers attended earlier Sunday a conference of Syria's neighboring countries in Zaatari refugee camp, in northeastern Jordan.

There are around 1.3 million Syrian refugees in Jordan, including 600,000 refugees registered with the United Nations.

Jordan allows 1,707 Syrian refugees in 72 hours

Jordan's border guards have allowed 1,707 more Syrian refugees during the past 72 hours, the Jordanian army announced on Sunday.

On its website, the army command said the refugees were men and women of different ages and some of them were injured.

"First aid was offered to emergency cases before they were taken to camps specified for refugees," the army added.

On Sunday a Syrian refugee  gave birth to three babies in an ambulance taking her to a state-run hospital in Mafraq province, north of the capital Amman.

The ambulance staffers were able to help the woman deliver her babies while en route to hospital, Jordan's Civil Defense Directorate said in a statement.

It added that the mother and the three babies were in good health condition after receiving the necessary assistance.
