AMMAN, April 7 (Xinhua) -- Jordan's King Abdullah II said on Wednesday that Prince Hamza, who was accused of being part of a plot to destabilize Jordan by authorities, was in the king's care.

In a letter to the nation published by the Royal Hashemite Court, the king said the "sedition has been nipped in the bud" and Jordan is safe and stable.

Prince Hamza was with his family in his palace in Amman in the king's care, according to the letter.

"The challenge over the past few days was not the most difficult or dangerous to the stability of our nation, but to me, it was the most painful. Sedition came from within and without our one house, and nothing compares to my shock, pain, and anger," the kind said.

He said the issue of Prince Hamza was dealt with inside the Hashemite family, adding that the investigations will continue in line with the law. Jordan will continue to stand up to the challenges it facing at all levels and will continue its constant stances.

On Monday, Prince Hamza signed a letter in which he said he will remain loyal to the king and committed to the country's constitution.

Jordan's Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said Sunday that Prince Hamza, former minister and royal court chief Bassem Awadallah, and royal family member Sharif Hassan Ben Zeid have contacts with external powers to take some actions against the country.

As part of a thorough security operation and investigation, Awadallah and Sharif Hassan, along with around 15 other persons, were arrested on Saturday for involvement in a plot, said Safadi. Enditem
