    SYNOPSIS: A delegation from the Arabian Gulf State arrived in Amman on Tuesday to meet Jordanian Foreign Minister, Abdullah Salah. The Arabian Gulf delegation, which is on a tour of Arab states to discuss the future of forming a new Union Monarchy a??? to explain independence moves to Arab leaders, had earlier arrived from Syria. Mr. Salah, who had earlier caught world attention at a press conference when he announced Jordan's reasons for taking the initiative in calling an urgent meeting the United Nations Security Council to discuss the deteriorating situation in Jerusalem, discussed independence problem with the delegation.

    Later in the day, the Arabian Gulf States delegation visited the Jordanian Prime Minister Wasfi El-Tell. They carried messages from the Governor in Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Zayed Ben Sultan, and talked with Jordan's Prime Minister on their moves towards independence and their intentions of joining the Arab League. Qatar's application to join the League earlier this month had been opposed by South Yemen on the grounds that British ties to the country were still not fully severed following formal independence. The future of the Union Monarchies of the Arabian Gulf States was also discussed and the delegation talked on future steps to form their common governing body.
