The Jordanian monarch, King Abdullah II, delivered a speech to the Jordanian people, today, Wednesday, a few days after accusing his half-brother Prince Hamzah and others, including a former head of the royal court, of being involved in a plot to destabilize “the security and stability of the kingdom.”
In his speech, the Jordanian monarch said that the events of the past days were not the most difficult or dangerous challenge to Jordan’s stability, noting that they were more painful to him, explaining that the parties to the strife were from inside and outside the same house.
He added that he decided to deal with the issue of Prince Hamzah within the framework of the Hashemite family, and entrusted this path to his uncle Prince Al-Hassan bin Talal, adding that Prince Hamzah committed himself before the family to follow the path of parents and grandparents, to be loyal to their message, and to place the interest of Jordan, its constitution and its laws above any Other considerations.
He confirmed that Prince Hamzah today is with his family in his palace under his care.
With regard to the moves that targeted the security and stability of Jordan, he stressed that they are under investigation in accordance with the law, and that the next steps will be governed by the standard that governs all the Kingdom’s decisions, which is the interest of the homeland and the interest of its loyal people.
