AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah received on Wednesday cables of congratulations from senior officials and officers on the occasion of the 62nd anniversary of the Arabisation of the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF), marked on March 1.

In 1956, His Majesty the late King Hussein Arabised the high command of JAF through the removal of British officers, particularly Lt. Gen. John Bagot Glubb, the British commander of the Arab Legion.

In March 1957, the Anglo-Jordanian Agreement was abrogated, followed by the evacuation of British forces from the Kingdom.
