Amman, 31 October 2002

His Majesty King Abdullah II visited on Thursday the Building of King Hussein Club where he was briefed by Senate President/ President of the club Zeid Rifai and Minister of Public Works Husni Abu Ghaideh on the renovation works at the Club.

The club which is named after late King Hussein is considered one of the oldest clubs in the region and which played a major role in supporting the cultural march and promoting social ties.
