    Background: The Spanish Prime Minister, Sr. Adolfo Suarez, has been making official visits to Iraq and Jordan to discuss recent developments in the Middle East and to strengthen Spain's diplomatic relations and friendship with the two countries. He flew to Baghdad on Sunday (February 10).

    SYNOPSIS: Sr. Suarez was greeted by Izzat Ibrahim, the Deputy Chairman of Iraq's ruling Revolutionary Command Council. The Spanish Prime Minister told his host he was sure the visit would lead to closer bilateral co-operation. He said relations between their two countries were excellent.

    During the two-day visit, the two leaders discussed energy resources and Arab-Israeli relations.

    In Amman on Tuesday (February 12), Sr. Suarez was received by King Hussein of Jordan at his Palace where they spoke about international issues and developments in the Middle East. Spain and Jordan later agreed to expand and strengthen their commercial and artistic ties, and to develop tourism between them.

    Official talks started when Sr. Suarez met Jordanian Prime Minister Sharif Abdul Hamid Sharaf. Their two delegations discussed the need to find ways of encouraging stability and peace in the Middle East.

    Jordan's Prime Minister said his country stands firm on its demand for a "complete Israeli withdrawal from occupied Arab territories". He said Spain had "an important role to play in developing the European stand regarding Arab rights."
