  • Description

    Jordan's new Prime Minister, Mr. Wasfit Tell, spoke about the United States' peace proposals for the Middle East in Amman on Saturday (7 November).

    Addressing his first press conference since the formation of his Government on the 28th of October, he said that although Jordan was still backing the Middle East proposals along with the U.A.R., the commitment did not cover the whole Palestinian problem, and was confined only to the results of the June 1967 Arab-Israeli war.

    This limitation on Jordan's commitment to the U.S. peace plan was seen by observers as an attempt to allay guerrilla fears that a political solution of the Palestinian problem might mean liquidation of the Palestinian Resistance Movement.

    In order replies to reporters' questions, the 50 year-old Prime Minister stressed his keenness to implement the Cairo and Amman agreements - signed on September 28 and October 13-which ended the fighting between the Jordanian army and the Palestinian guerrillas.

    On the U.S peace plan issue, Mr. Tell answered the question of an American reporter.
