  • Description

    INTRODUCTION King Juan Carlos of Spain and his wife Queen Sofia arrived in Amman, Jordan from Cairo for a three-day state visit on Wednesday (23 March).

    SYNOPSIS: King Hussein of Jordan was at Amman airport to greet the Spanish royal couple - whose Middle East tour forms part of a diplomatic offensive that Spain launched towards the Arab world in January. Ties between Spain and Arab countries are traditionally close and official sources said talks between the two monarchs would concentrate on bilateral relation and the Middle East situation. The Spanish delegation includes Foreign Minister Marcelino Oreja Aguirre.

    Spain is one of the few non-Arab countries not to have recognised Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organisation has recently opened an office in Madrid. In a joint communique issued in Cairo And Madrid on Wednesday Egypt and Spain called for the realisation of the rights of the Palestinian people to establish an independent state.
