    The United States' Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger, visited Jordan and Syria on Saturday?

  • Description

    The United States' Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger, visited Jordan and Syria on Saturday (15 March) for talks with Syria's President Hafez Al-Assad, and Jordan's King Hussein.

    He had flown from Israel where the previous day (Friday) he had talks with Israeli leaders, to whom he had presented the latest suggestions from Egypt following his talks with president Anwar Sadat.

    While Dr. Kissinger was in Syria and Jordan, the Israeli Cabinet was believed to be preparing its response to the general terms put forward by President Sadat for a settlement between the two countries. Dr. Kissinger was expected to return to Israel on Sunday evening (16 March), when the Israeli Cabinet's position would be made known to him.

    Dr. Kissinger, during this current middle East mission, is trying to arrange new Israeli withdrawals from occupied Sinai, while Israel is pressing for a declaration of non-belligerency from Egypt in return. In the view of Syria, such a pledge from the Egyptians would reduce the Arabs' joint bargaining power.
