Spring can be opportunity to institutionalize positive change,
Jordanian King says
His Majesty King Abdullah on Wednesday said the Arab Spring can be an opportunity to institutionalize positive change that is necessary for a strong, secure, prosperous future.
In remarks at the 66th session of the UN General Assembly in New York, the King added: "We can build on the pioneering achievements of Arab-Islamic civilization - with its core values of compassion, responsibility, tolerance and respect for others".
"For my country, these opportunities are opening the door to a major revitalization of our reform effort ... including the rule of law, justice, and the rights and freedoms of democratic political life," His Majesty said.
His Majesty reiterated Jordan’s continuing support for “the inalienable right of the Palestinian people to statehood in fulfillment of their aspirations and in accordance with UN resolutions, and within a comprehensive and just settlement and the resolution of all final status issues."
"We seek a new and vigorous international push, with concrete steps toward the end-game,” the King stated. “Not words, not process. But a decisive end to conflict, and a new beginning in peace. The peace that comes from real statehood and recognized-rights for Palestinians ... allowing people to look forward in dignity and hope.”
