  • Description

    King Hussein of Jordan has said there will not be peace in the Middle East until Israel is ready to negotiate over Jerusalem. At a National Press Club luncheon in Washington on Friday (15 March), King Hussein said Jerusalem had been 'annexed illegally after the Six-Day War'. The Jordanian monarch has been visiting the United States for talks with President Nixon, Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger and Defence Secretary James Schlesinger. At the luncheon he also accused Israeli leaders of being contradictory in their statements over their willingness to negotiate with the Arabs.

    Washington press reports the previous day said the United States had promised to speed up delivery of 20 supersonic jet fighters to Jordan, and to set up an improved air defence system in Jordan.
