Tribute to the memory of King Hussein of Jordan

The President (interpretation from French): On behalf of the members of the Security Council, I should like to express profound grief and sorrow at the death of His Majesty King Hussein Ibn Talal of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. King Hussein's entire life was dedicated to a devoted service to his country and a tireless search for peace, stability and understanding in the Middle East. His loss will be greatly felt.

On behalf of the Security Council, I should like to convey to His Majesty King Abdullah, the bereaved family and the people of Jordan the Council's profound condolences.

I now invite the members of the Council to rise and observe a minute of silence in tribute to the memory of His Majesty King Hussein Ibn Talal of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

The members of the Security Council observed a minute of silence.
