    KING HUSSEIN WILL LEAVE SAUDI ARABIA FOR CAIRO TOMORROW (SATURDAY).

    THE TOUR WAS PLANNED BEFORE THE AL-AQSA MOSQUE FIRE BUT KING HUSSEIN IS EXPECTED TO DISCUSS WAYS OF PRESERVING HOLY PLACES IN JERUSALEM FROM DAMAGE.

    KING HUSSEIN WAS QUOTED BY BEIRUT NEWSPAPER YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) AS SAYING THAT A SMALL ARAB SUMMIT WOULD BE HELD SHORTLY BY LEADERS OF COUNTRIES DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN THE CONFLICT WITH ISRAEL.

    HE ADDED THAT THE CONFERENCE COULD BE A PRELUDE TO A GENERAL ARAB SUMMIT.

    THEY CALLED ON THE JORDANIAN GOVERNMENT TO CEASE CO-OPERATION WITH WESTERN POWERS AND THANKED THE SOVIET UNION FOR ITS HELP IN THE CONFLICT WITH ISRAEL. THEY DEMANDED THAT THE GOVERNMENT RECOGNISE EAST GERMANY AND BREAK DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH WEST GERMANY.
