Jordan said on Sunday the bloody crackdown on the opposition in Syria is "worrisome," and called for dialogue and reforms to end the crisis in the neighboring country.
"What is happening in Syria now is worrisome, unfortunate and sad," Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh told the state-run Petra news agency in an interview.
"We hope that dialogue is restored and reforms are achieved in order to get Syria out of this impasse."
Judeh also said Jordan does not interfere in Syria's internal affairs.
"For Jordan, Syria's unity and security are a red line," he said.
Syrian forces backed by tanks killed more than 50 people on Sunday, activists said, as the government sought to crush the protest movement.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, at least 2,059 people have been killed, including 391 members of the security forces, since the protest movement erupted in mid-March.
