During the meeting, King Abdullah harshly criticized Egypt and Syria accusing them of forming a "radical new alliance."


He slammed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi for marginalizing Jordan during the ceasefire negotiations between Israel and Hamas and accused him of causing grave damage to Jordan's economy "due to the repeated disruptions in the supply of gas."


The king was also quoted as saying that the Assad regime has the military capacity to last for another two years but that from a financial perspective it will not last more than four months.
