Amman, 12 June 2014
His Majesty King Abdullah has sent a letter to His Royal Highness Prince Talal Bin Mohammad, dated June 11, tasking him with preparing a comprehensive record of the Kingdom’s national occasions and the ways to celebrate them.
King Abdullah directed Prince Talal, the King’s special adviser, to include the traditions and formalities that should be observed when celebrating the Kingdom’s national occasions, which are “beacons of light” in Jordan’s history and national heritage.
His Majesty stressed that pivotal occasions such as the Independence Day, the Great Arab Revolt anniversary and Army Day should remain a source of pride and inspiration for future generations.
“Our fathers and ancestors have sacrificed to make these achievements come true; our armed forces had many martyrs and fought heroic battles defending this country and the nation’s dignity,” the King said in the letter.
Celebrating these occasions honours these sacrifices and achievements, His Majesty added.
