King Abdullah (2)

King Abdullah has added to his early education at the royal court with extensive reading of history, politics and social affairs. His years spent with the bedouin in the desert reinforced in him the traditional bedouin values of honor, generosity, simplicity and courage.

From the early years of his manhood, he has been closely involved in events inside the Kingdom, invaluable experience not only for dealing with the internal affairs of the Kingdom but also for the role he has played on the wider stage of international affairs.

He has visited most of the Kingdom's allies and has used his good offices to mediate in negotiations between other Arab states.
