King Abdullah expressed his gratitude today to the Parliament for their efforts this past week, where a host of legislations were approved to improveme the judicial system.

The King spoke to Parliament House Speaker and other Parliament officials at a meeting Al Husseineyah palace, where he stressed the importance of coordination and cooperation between the Parliament and the government to benefit the Jordanian citizen.

He praised the Parliament’s recent legislative performance and said, “there are many challenges ahead of you, especially economical challenges, but we are going in the right direction. It’s not always easy to solve problems as quickly as we’d like, but we must always think about moving forward.”

The Monarch proceeded to talk about the challenges that Jordanians face with the Palestinian cause and Jerusalem.

He said that without the Hashemite Custodianship over Jerusalem, and without the resistance of the Palestinians, the city’s holy sites would’ve been lost years ago.

The King said that the future of the Palestinian cause is on the line, and finding a solution grows harder with time. He urged for stronger cooperation with the American administration to advance the Palestinian cause.

The King talked about the attack on a Public Security Directorate in Maan yesterday which left one police officer dead. He said that the law must be respected, and that security services are a line that should not be crossed.
