  • Description

    EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE OF ETHIOPIA IS NOW IN JORDAN ON THE LATEST STAGE OF HIS TOUR OF A NUMBER OF MIDDLE EASTERN COUNTRIES. HE WAS MET AT AMMAN AIRPORT YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) BY KING HUSSEIN AND HIS BROTHER PRINCE MOHAMMED WITH THE PRIME MINISTER OF JORDAN, MR. WASFI TELL AND OTHER PARLIAMENTARY AND MILITARY LEADERS.

    THE ETHIOPIAN EMPEROR ARRIVED IN JORDAN FROM THE LEBANON WHERE HE SPENT THREE DAYS ON A STATE VISIT. HE IS EXPECTED TO LEAVE JORDAN FOR THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC ON SATURDAY.

    HE HAS BEEN GREETED ENTHUSIASTICALLY BY THE JORDAN PRESS. PRAISING HIM FOR HIS STRUGGLE AGAINST IMPERIALISM ONE NEWSPAPER EXPRESSED THE HOPE "THAT HE WILL DEEPLY AND SINCERELY SHARE THE FEELINGS OF THE PEOPLE HE IS VISITING, AND WHO ARE SUFFERING FROM THE OUTCOME OF A GREAT INJUSTICE DONE TO THEM UNDER THE FALSE PRETEXT OF RELIGION."
    IN A SPEECH SOON AFTER HIS ARRIVAL THE EMPEROR SAID HE HAD BEEN REFUGEE HIMSELF IN THE PAST AND COULD UNDERSTAND AND SYMPATHISE WITH THE PALESTINE PROBLEM.

    (EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE LEFT AMMAN TODAY (THURSDAY) TO VISIT SITES IN JERUSALEM AND BETHLEHEM CONNECTED WITH THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION. HE RETURNS TO AMMAN TONIGHT.)
