Discussions about returning Syrian refugees from Jordan  are "premature", the spokesperson for the UN refugee agency in Jordan, Mohammed al-Hawari, said on Tuesday.

Speaking to The New Arab, Hawari said that, "most voluntary returns made by Syrian refugees are due to family circumstances, such as deaths or for family reunification," adding that no refugee returns were registered from Jordan last month.
