  • Description

    KING HUSSEIN OF JORDAN TODAY EXPRESSED CONFIDENCE HE AND EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT GAMAL ABDUL NASSER COULD IMPLEMENT AN ACCEPTABLE SETTLEMENT OF THE MIDDLE EAST PROBLEM DESPITE OPPOSITION FROM EXTREMIST PALESTINIAN GROUPS.

    HUSSEIN SAID HE WAS CERTAIN AN OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF HIS PEOPLE WOULD SUPPORT A SETTLEMENT BASED ON THE SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION OF NOVEMBER, 1967.

    ANSWERING QUESTIONS AT A LUNCHEON GIVEN IN HIS HONOUR BY THE U.N. CORRESPONDENTS' ASSOCIATION, THE KING EXPLAINED THAT THE SIX-POINT PLAN HE PROPOSED IN WASHINGTON LAST WEEK WAS "OUR INTERPRETATION OF THE OBLIGATIONS WE WOULD HAVE TO LIVE UP TO, HAVING ACCEPTED THE SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION."
    THE RESOLUTION CALLS FOR A PULLBACK OF ISRAELI FORCES FROM AREAS OCCUPIED IN THE JUNE, 1967 WAR AND A RECOGNITION BY ARAB COUNTRIES OF ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO EXIST.

    HUSSEIN EXPRESSED SYMPATHY FOR "THE TREMENDOUS LOSSES, SUFFERING, BITTERNESS AND DISAPPOINTMENTS" OF THE PALESTINIAN REFUGEES, BUT HE STRESSED THAT THE ROLE OF THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE IN JORDAN COULD ONLY BE DEFINED AFTER A GENERAL SETTLEMENT.

    HE REITERATED THAT A SEPARATE PALESTINIAN STATE ON THE WEST BANK OF THE JORDAN RIVER COULD NOT BE ACCEPTED.

    "THE PEOPLE OF PALESTINE SHOULD BE GIVEN THE CHOICE OF A RETURN TO THEIR LANDS OF COMPENSATION," HE SAID.
