Jordan King openly criticizes uncle for attending Iraqi opposition conference
Jordan's state news agency on Monday stressed King Abdullah II's public rebuke to his uncle, Prince Hassan bin Talal, in an interview with The Times of London.
Petra reproduced Abdullah's remarks to The Times Monday with regards to Hassan's attendance at a London meeting of Iraqi opposition some two weeks ago.
"Prince Hassan blundered into something he did not realize he was getting into and we’re all picking up the pieces," Abdullah told The Times. (Albawaba.com)
