AMMAN - Pope Francis has thanked Jordan for welcoming hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing the civil war in Syria, calling for an "urgent," peaceful solution to the conflict.


The pope also lauded Jordan for the "serene coexistence" enjoyed by Christians and Muslims in the country and called for greater protections for minority Christians across the region, in prepared remarks to King Abdullah II and Jordanian political and religious leaders at the royal palace. (AP)
