Amman, Oct 5 (IANS) Jordan and Romania on Sunday called for intensified efforts to fight terrorism, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

At a meeting between Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh and Romanian Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi, the two sides stressed on the need to increase efforts in this regard.
