Prince Charles has met Iraqi Christian refugees during his trip to Jordan.

The Prince, who has met with Iraqi Christians in Britain and given public support to Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), went to a gathering of Iraqi refugees at the British ambassador’s residence in Jordanian capital Amman immediately after his arrival on Sunday.

He told them: “For what it’s worth you have nothing but my entire sympathy. I cannot imagine a worse situation to be in and it won’t be of any consolation but I have been praying every day for all of you. Thank you for telling me of the nature of the difficultites you face and I wish I could find a solution now.”

The Prince, who is in a tour of the Middle East that will take in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, said: “This is what I think must be the worst of horrors when all the people you lived with, side by side and have always been friendly, suddenly totally change.”

Jordan is in mourning following the murder of its pilot, Lt Moaz al-Kasaesbeh, by ISIS terrorists, who burned him to death in a cage and posted the video on the internet.

In November Prince Charles recorded a message ACN in support of Christian refugees and in December he attended a Chaldean Mass in Acton.
