Jordanian king cancels visit to Romania after PM Dancila’s speech on Jerusalem
King Abdullah II of Jordan has called off a planned trip to Romania following remarks by Romanian prime minister Viorica Dancila that Romania will move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
He decided to cancel his visit to Romania, which was scheduled to start on March 25, in solidarity with Jerusalem, according to Jordantimes.com.
The king's visit to Romania was supposed to include meetings with Romanian president Klaus Iohannis and Parliament leaders, according to a statement by the Royal Hashemite Court. On the sidelines of the visit, the Jordanian and Romanian Governments were due to sign an agreement, two memorandums of understanding, and a cooperation programme, while a Jordanian-Romanian business forum was also planned, with the participation of private sector representatives from the two countries.
