During the inauguration of the 19th Parliament’s second ordinary session on Sunday, King Abdullah II of Jordan praised the vision of economic modernization that binds governments. He pointed out that comprehensive modernization with its political, economic and administrative tracks is a great national project on which all national goals and efforts must be focused.
He added that political and economic modernization is not complete without an effective public administration that provides the best services to citizens and adopts modern technology as a means to speed up achievement and productivity.
King Abdullah underscored that Jordan will continue to focus on defending the Palestinian cause, which is a top priority for Jordan.
In his throne speech, he said that Jordan would continue to support the Palestinian cause and that the solution begins with ending the Israeli occupation and establishing an independent Palestinian state.
” As their closest neighbors, we will work to ensure they are key partners in regional projects, and we will not accept their marginalization, reaffirming, at the same time, that economic empowerment cannot replace a political solution,” the Jordanian monarch added.
