The Jordanian Foreign Minister, Mr. Hassan Anis Ibrahim arrived in Moscow on Thursday (10 May) to hold talks with his Soviet counterpart Mr. Andrei Gromyko. The two men and their delegations held discussions on the current situation in the Middle East.
SYNOPSIS: The Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko greeted the Jordanian Foreign Minister Hassan Anis Ibrahim, early Friday (11 May). They spent several hours discussing matters of mutual interest, with particular emphasis on the recent peace agreement between Egypt and Israel.
The Jordanian stand on the Peace Treaty signed between Israel and Egypt has been repeatedly expressed by King Hussein. He along with other Arab leader agreed to break economic links with Egypt at the baghdad conference. He has said he is looking for what he calls a comprehensive peace in the Middle East and he said "no single Arab leader had the right to undertake unilateral action over the common cause."
Late last year the Soviet and Jordanian representatives at the United Nations denounced Israeli activities in the Occupied Territories. The Israelis refused to co-operate with a group established by the General Assembly to investigate alleged human rights violations in the Occupied Territories. The Soviet Union and Jordan called for the Israelis to allow the United Nations to investigate these allegations.
