Jordanian government officials said Friday they were confident Egypt’s military would facilitate the country’s transition toward a new era of stability and prosperity.

‘Jordan expresses its confidence in the ability of the Egyptian armed forces to shoulder its huge responsibilities … in ably running Egypt’s affairs towards the new phase that ensures Egypt continues to play its central role in the Arab region … and ensure stability and prosperity,’ a statement released by the state news agency Petra said.

‘The government expresses its deep respect for the Egyptian army and its big nationalist role,’ said the statement, released after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s resignation.
