Pakistan voices support for Jordan’s King Abdullah

Observer Report

Pakistan on Monday expressed its full support for Kingdom of Jordan, led by King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein, the Foreign Office said in a statement.

“Pakistan is following the situation in Jordan,” FO spokesperson Zahid Chaudhri said, adding, “Pakistan fully supports the right of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to preserve its security, stability and sovereignty.”

The statement comes at a time when tensions appear to be high within Jordan’s royal household after Prince Hamza bin Al Hussein, the former crown prince and half-brother of ruling monarch Abdullah, was reportedly been placed under house arrest.
