AMMAN (al-Ghad) — Official Jordanian sources countered on Monday a crescendo of rumors that the kingdom has appointed a representative for the Syrian opposition coalition, saying these were “not accurate”.

The sources, who declined to be named, rejected “what has been circulating in media” as inaccurate, after member of the National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces Muhammad Mraweh said that he has been officially appointed as the representative of the coalition in Jordan.

He told CNN from Istanbul on Monday that his appointment “came in coordination with the Government of Jordan”.

Mrawh said that the decision was taken on Sunday evening, and that he resides in Amman but is on a short visit to Istanbul. 

Earlier on Monday, Jordan declared the Syrian ambassador in Amman Bahjat Suleiman persona non grata and gave him  24 hours to leave the kingdom.
