Jordanian King Abdullah accused Israel of disrupting and interfering with Jordan's nuclear energy program, in an interview with AFP on Wednesday.

Jordan has sought to cooperate with other countries in order to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, but Israel has been putting pressure on those countries not to comply, Abdullah claimed.

"A Jordanian delegation would approach a potential partner, and one week later an Israeli delegation would be there, asking our interlocutors not to support Jordan's nuclear energy bid," AFP quoted Abdullah as saying.

As a result of repeated attacks since 2011 on the pipelines leading gas supplies from Egypt to both Jordan and Israel, the desert country, that imports 95% of its energy needs, is seeking to find alternative energy sources.

Jordan plans to invest $4.9 billion in a nuclear power plant that would constitute one third of the total power capacity generated in the country today.
