  • Description

    A SAUDI ARABIAN MILITARY MISSION - LED BY THE MINISTER OF DEFENCE, PRINCE SULTAN BEN ABDEL AZIZ - ARRIVED IN AMMAN YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) FOR A FOUR DAY VISIT.

    THE MISSION WAS MET AT THE AIRPORT BY CROWN PRINCE HASSAN, BROTHER OF KING HUSSEIN, AND THE JORDANIAN PRIME MINISTER, MR SA'D JUMA.

    THE ARABIAN MISSION, WHICH INCLUDES THE CHIEF-OF-STAFF, GENERAL ABDULLAH AL-MUTLAQ, WILL MAKE A TOUR OF SEVERAL PARTS OF JORDAN.

    THE SAME DAY, KING HUSSEIN IS REPORTED TO HAVE TOLD THE JORDANIAN PARLIAMENT THAT THERE WAS AN URGENT NEED FOR AN ARAB SUMMIT TO CO-ORDINATE ARAB ACTION FOLLOWING LAST MONTH'S WAR WITH ISRAEL.

    JOURNALISTS WERE BARRED FROM THE FOUR HOUR MEETING BUT AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT ISSUED AFTERWARDS SAID THAT INSTRUCTIONS HAD BEEN GIVEN TO THE ARMED FORCES GENERAL COMMAND TO SET UP NEW TRAINING CENTRES AND HAVE THEM READY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

    THE STATEMENT ADDED: "EVERY INDIVIDUAL IN OUR ARAB NATION MUST BE AWARE OF HIS ROLE IN THE BATTLE OF CONSTRUCTION AND PREPARATION. WHILE PAST EVENTS HAVE UNCOVERED FOR US MANY BITTER FACTS, THESE FACTS SHOULD ONLY INCREASE OUR DETERMINATION AND FIRMNESS IN WORKING FOR A BETTER FUTURE."
