Jordan's King Abdullah II praises Merkel's migrant policies

BERLIN – Jordan's King Abdullah II says Chancellor Angela Merkel should be commended for her decision to open Germany's doors to hundreds of thousands of migrants and for her government's support for his and other countries in the region dealing with the flood of refugees from Syria.

Jordan, with a population of about 6.5 million, hosts about 635,000 refugees from neighboring Syria. In brief remarks Friday after talks with Merkel, Abdullah said the chancellor's approach brought a "breath of fresh air" into the challenges faced by his country and elsewhere.
