King’s Interview with The Times
London, 15 November 2011
His Majesty King Abdullah said the Arab Spring was a positive and defining moment in Arab history. “When we all look back at some point in the future, this is a defining moment for the Middle East."
In an interview with the British daily The Times published Tuesday, King Abdullah said "the work ahead of us now, and we are in the Arab summer, is to get to elections. We’re down now to the technical details... I’m encouraging the government to sit down and put a road map in front of everybody so that people realise what needs to move forward."
