Abdullah: Israel keeping Jordan from developing peaceful nuclear program

Jordan’s King Abdullah accused Israel on Tuesday of trying to prevent his kingdom from developing a peaceful nuclear program, aimed at producing energy.

The king revealed in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that Israel had approached South Korea and France with requests to refrain from selling Jordan nuclear technology. Israel’s “underhanded” actions are adding tension to already strained relations with Jordan, bringing ties between the two countries to their lowest point since they signed a peace agreement in 1994, the king said.

“There are countries, Israel in particular,” Abdullah told the Wall Street Journal, “that are more worried about us being economically independent than the issue of nuclear energy, and have been voicing their concerns.”
