SYNOPSIS: Mr. Bahi Ladgham, Tunisian Chairman of the Arab Peace Mission in Jordan, answered questions on its future at a press Conference on Saturday in Amman.
Mr. Ladgham was asked by a reporter whether the Arab Mission would have to stay long in Jordan.
He replied that his would be a very bad thing, and would lead to their acquiring bad habits. He said he did not want to see the Arab Mission becoming a permanent Institution. If it did, he thought it might assume responsibilities they had not intended to assume, or seen any possibility of assuming. For this reason he thought he had to end the Mission as soon as possible, as soon as he had prepared the ground for the proper working of the Cairo agreements, and the Amman protocol. When that was done it would be time to say that the Mission was at an end.
