  • Jordan's king cancels visit to Romania over Al Quds embassy plan
Sharjah 24 – Reuters: Jordan's King Abdullah II cancelled a visit to Romania scheduled for Monday in protest at Romanian Prime Minister Vorica Dancila's plans to move her country's embassy to Al Quds.
In a statement, the Jordanian Royal Court said the decision to cancel the visit came "in solidarity with Al Quds."

During the visit, King Abdullah was scheduled to meet Romanian President Klaus Iohannis and parliament leaders and sign a number of cooperation deals.

On Sunday, Dancila told a powerful pro-Israeli occupation lobbying group in Washington that Romania will "move our embassy to Jerusalem."
