    The Tripoli talks resulted in the creation of a four-member conciliatory commission to ease differences between the Jordanian government and Palestinian Commandos.

    Also present in Monday's talks at Government House were Iraqi vice presidents Air Marshal Harden Al-Takriti and Lieutenant-General Saleh Mandi Ammash, in charge of defence and the interior respectively.

    A pro-government newspaper in Oran pointed out that President Al Bakr's visit, after those of Colonel Gadaffi of Libya and King Feisal of Saudi Arabia, was not a coincidence, noted that these three countries were major Arab oil producers and stressed the need for a concerted action in the economic field.
