The conditions were appropriate to give them a more important place in the management and administration of their country’s affairs, especially the army. But although Klopp was commander-in-chief of the army, he could not forget his devotion and loyalty to England; This explains London’s control over our military affairs, and I repeatedly asked the British to train more Jordanian officers who could rise to the higher ranks, and the British were ignoring my demands.”
