Jordan is ready to host U.S. training of Iraqi soldiers after al-Qaida militants seized control of two towns in Iraq’s contested Anbar province, Information Minister Mohammad Momani said Sunday.

He told the Associated Press that Jordan has received a U.S. request to host the training and that details are being discussed.

“We look positively at the training because it is consistent with our foreign policy goal of fighting terrorism and because we have one of the best security and military training facilities in the region,” said Momani, who is also the government spokesman.
