  • Description

    KING HUSSEIN OF JORDAN LEFT CAIRO TODAY FOR SAUDI ARABIA AFTER TWO DAYS OF TALKS WITH PRESIDENT NASSER. HE WAS GREETED AT CAIRO AIRPORT EARLY YESTERDAY (MONDAY) MORNING BY PRESIDENT NASSER AND MOST OF HIS MINISTERS.

    KING HUSSEIN RECENTLY RETURNED TO THE MIDDLE EAST AFTER A MONTH-LONG JOURNEY TO FRANCE, GREAT BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES. WHILE IN WASHINGTON HE PUT FORWARD A PEACE FORWARD PLAN WHICH HE SAID HAD THE SUPPORT OF PRESIDENT NASSER, BUT THIS WAS REJECTED BY ISRAEL. IT IS THOUGHT THAT HIS VISIT TO CAIRO WAS INTENDED TO ALLOW HIM TO REPORT TO PRESIDENT NASSER ON THE RESULTS OF HIS TALKS WITH WESTERN LEADERS.

    INFORMED SOURCES SAID TODAY THAT THE TWO HEADS OF STATE HAD DISCUSSED THE QUESTION OF THE MILITARY STRENGTH OF THE EASTERN ARAB FRONT, WHICH INCLUDES IRAQ, JORDAN AND SYRIA. THEY ARE ALSO THOUGHT TO HAVE DISCUSSED MOVES BY THE BIG FOUR TO TRY AND FIND A PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT TO THE MIDDLE EAST CRISIS.

    THERE HAVE BEEN A NUMBER OF HIGH RANKING ARAB VISITORS TO CAIRO IN THE LAST WEEK, INCLUDING PRESIDENT ATASSI OF SYRIA.
