Jordan’s King Accuses Israel of Nuclear Sabotage

Jordanian King Abdullah II has accused Israel of sabotaging his country’s efforts to build a nuclear program, AFP reports. “Strong opposition to Jordan's nuclear energy programme is coming from
Israel," he said.

"When we started going down the road of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, we approached some highly responsible countries to work with us. And pretty soon we realised that Israel was putting pressure on those countries to disrupt any cooperation with us,” Abdullah claimed.
