  • Description

    Visnews filmed Dec 11 U.S. Assistant Secretary of State William Rountree, on a Mid-East tour, visiting the Prime Minister of Jordan and later King Hussein.

    Mr. Rountree, one of Dulles's aides, was with the American Ambassador in Amman during the audience with Hussein. Rountree's tour follows that made by U.S. roving diplomat, Robert Murphy to the trouble capitals of the Mid-East recently.

    Later Rountree flew to Cairo, then Baghdad. Communist influence in the Baghdad Government was reported to be a topic Nasser might raise with the U.S. envoy. It was reported he was as much concerned over it as Western diplomats. Yet the day Rountree saw Hussein, Nasser watched a fly-past parade of Russian-built fighters delivered to Egypt the week previous.
