  • Description

    VISNEWS filmed Apl 20 an interview by Richard Dimbleby with King Hussein of Jordan. During the interview the 23-year-old monarch --- in England on a ten-day private visit --- expressed his personal views on the present situation in Jordan and of the tense Middle-East in general. Surrounded by members of his staff he spoke of the Communist threat to the Arab world and his wish for stronger this between Great Britain and Jordan.

    During a press conference at the Jordanian Embassy earlier that day, King Hussein said he hoped to create in Jordan an anti-Communist movement "which will go on with or without me". He added; "If in trying to do my work I lose my life for my people I would not hesitate to do exactly what I have done".

    More than once King Hussein emphasised the "growing understanding" and the "mutual understanding, respect and good relations" which mow exist between his country and the Anglo-American alliance.

    King Hussein who is on a world tour, arrived in London Apl 19 from New York. Although his visit to Britain is private, he is to see ear nose and throat specialists for a recurrence of his "sinus" trouble, he will have some discussions with the Government.
