  • Description

    King Hussein of Jordan, interviewed last month, indicated that there was internal harmony in Jordan despite the presence of "some of the contradictions of the Arab world". Since the interview, these contradictions have sharpened, with bloody clashes between guerrillas and the Jordanian Army; and an assassination attempt upon the King's life.

    After all night talks of Tuesday (June 9) an eleven-point agreement was reached between the two sides at the King's villa at Al Humma, west of Amman, and a ceasefire called. The basic issue at stake is: who will control the real sources of power in Jordan? It remains to be seen if the recent agreement will provide the answer or resolve the "contradictions".
