King satisfied with country’s direction, optimistic about future

AMMAN (JT) – His Majesty King Abdullah said he is leading the national dialogue in the right direction, stressing that he has no worries about the future of Jordan.

“We brought all sectors of society together. We created what we called the national dialogue to all sit around the table and decide what it is that Jordanians want,” King Abdullah said, noting that the committee in charge of the dialogue tackles new elections and political parties laws that are essential for the future of the country.

“I have the responsibility to lead the debate in the right direction. And I think Jordan will move towards the light. I have no worries about Jordan,” His Majesty affirmed in the interview conducted by ABC’s Christiane Amanpour.
