Saudi Crown Prince and Jordanian King discuss regional developments in call
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz held a telephone call with Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Monday.
“During the conversation, the fraternal relations binding the two countries, and ways of enhancing them were discussed and issues of mutual concern as well as the developments in the region were reviewed,” a Saudi Press Agency statement said.
Earlier on Monday, the king said he stood with the Jordanian people and understood the size of living and economic pressures on citizens.
King Abdullah stressed that Jordan faces “challenges that need to be dealt with wisely and responsibly,” adding that “state institutions must adopt a method of action based on transparency and accountability”.
“The citizen has all the right, and I will not accept that Jordanians are suffering,” the Jordanian monarch said during a meeting with a number of official journalist and editors of daily newspapers.
During his meeting, King Abdullah expressed his pride in what he saw of the cultural expression of Jordanian youth in the past few days, which he said reflected their keenness in achieving a better future for them.
He stressed that “all Jordanians are working for a better future for their homeland and how to move forward with confidence and determination”.
