The delegation was one of four sent out by King Hussein to explain to the Arab world his proposals for a federal kingdom combining the two banks of the River Jordan.

    Before the talks, Egypt had made no official statement on the King's proposals. But on Saturday evening, Egypt, Syria and Libya condemned the plan in a joint declaration issued by the Presidential Council of the Federation of Arab Republics. The statement urged Arab governments to reject the plan and obstruct what it called machinations aiming at the liquidation of the Palestinian case.
