(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Karak, Dec 9 (Petra) –– Prime Minister Hani Mulki said on Saturday that Jordanians have stood together in solidarity with Jerusalem in a display of unity "in which they proved they are the pulse of this nation and a source of its pride".
"Jordanians have proved throughout history that they confront any attempt targeting their country, and that, together with their Arab brethren, they uphold their Arab identity and national fundamentals", he said during a visit to the Karak Governorate where he met with members of its local Council.
He praised the Jordanians' stance supporting the legitimate rights of the Palestinians and calling for an end to the occupation and the setting up of an independent Palestinian state on national Palestinian soil with East Jerusalem as its capital.
The Prime Minister also said Jordanians rally behind their Hashemite leadership to achieve self-reliance, politically and economically, despite the hardship the country is facing.
During the meeting, he stressed the importance of drawing up a working programme with the Governorate Council and Executive Council, stressing that his government is serious about making the decentralization process a success.
"We are aware that the decentralization experience is in its initial stages, but together we will succeed and will offer to the country what it deserves," he told the meeting.
