Rabat – Jordan’s Foreign Affairs Minister Ayman Al Safadi said on Sunday Prince Hamzah was  plotting to destabilize Jordan.

In a press conference, Al Safadi, who is also Jordan’s deputy prime minister, said the prince was in communication with several figures inside and outside Jordan, plotting to undermine the country’s security and stability.

“There were efforts that threatened Jordan’s security and stability and these efforts were foiled,” the minister said.

The official emphasized that an investigation is ongoing to determine the involvement of the prince and foreign parties that threatened Jordan’s security and stability.

Vowing transparency, he said Jordan will unveil more details, including names, after the investigation.

Safadi’s press conference comes after the arrest of 20 high profile officials on Saturday for plotting a coup d’etat.
