(CNN) – As the Arab Spring continues to cause unrest in the Middle East, King Abdullah of Jordan is speeding up political and economic reform in his country.

In an exclusive interview with CNN's John Defterios, he explains why Jordan is moving on from the Arab Spring, and preparing for national elections next year. The king tells CNN the country is moving from "the Arab Spring to the Arab Summer."

However, the king has "great concern" about Syria, where thousands have been killed in anti-government demonstrations over the past eight months.
