AMMAN, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Jordan's Prime Minister Fayez Tarawneh on Tuesday said Jordan is ready to all options towards the situation in Syria, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

At a meeting with Britain's International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell, Tarawneh stressed that Jordan is not part of the conflict inside Syria, however, Jordan is one of the most affected countries by the developments in Syria.

The prime minister said Jordan calls for a peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria as soon as possible, underlining the need for an immediate halt of the bloodshed and violence in the country.

Highlighting the burdens on the country's economy in light of the increasing number of Syrians fleeing to Jordan, he noted that there are more than 150,000 Syrians in Jordan who fled since the unrest to date.

The British official voiced appreciation of Jordan's support to the Syrians and said his visit was meant to look into means on how to help Jordan in this regard.
