AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Thursday attended the ceremony held at Raghadan Palace to mark Jordan’s 77th Independence Day, also attended by Her Majesty Queen Rania and HRH Crown Prince Hussein.

During the ceremony, the heads of the authorities delivered speeches expressing deep pride in Jordan and the importance of this occasion, which reaffirms Jordanians’ pride in their homeland, and their determination to continue towards further progress under its Hashemite leadership, according to a Royal Court statement.

They expressed pride in the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army and security agencies for safeguarding the nation’s achievements, commending Jordan’s unwavering position, led by His Majesty, in defence of just Arab causes, especially the Palestinian cause and Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem, under the Hashemite Custodianship.

They noted Jordan’s ongoing modernisation efforts across the political, economic, and administrative tracks, as the state moves forward into its second centennial.

Royal family members, senior officials and officers, members of the diplomatic corps, and representatives of political parties, civil society organisations and professional associations attended the ceremony.
