  • Description

    OPENING A NEW SESSION OF THE JORDANIAN PARLIAMENT IN AMMAN YESTERDAY (SATURDAY), KING HUSSEIN, IN A SPEECH FROM THE THRONE, EXPRESSED HIS SUPPORT FOR ARAB GUERILLAS AND THE STRUGGLE TO LIBERATE OCCUPIED TERRITORY IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

    CROWN PRINCE HASSAN WAS ALSO PRESENT AT THE OPENING OF THE NEW PARLIAMENTARY SESSION.

    IN HIS SPEECH, KING HUSSEIN SAID THAT JORDAN WOULD NOT HESITATE TO LIBERATE OCCUPIED TERRITORY IF POLITICAL EFFORTS TO SOLVE THE MIDDLE EAST CRISIS FAILED. TERRITORY ON THE WEST BANK OF THE RIVER JORDAN HAS BEEN OCCUPIED BY THE ISRAELIS SINCE THE JUNE WAR IN 1967.

    THE KING ADDED THAT NO TANGIBLE PROGRESS HAD SO FAR BEEN ACHIEVED TOWARDS A POLITICAL SOLUTION OF THE CRISIS, DESPITE CONTINUOUS EFFORTS BY JORDAN AND OTHER ARAB STATES.

    IF JORDAN'S ENEMIES FINALLY OBSTRUCTED A PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT OF THE PROBLEM, THE COUNTRY WOULD HAVE TO PURSUE ITS OWN COURSE TO ACHIEVE THE LIBERATION OF JORDAN'S "CAPTIVE PEOPLE".

    THOUGH HE GENERALLY SUPPORTED THE ARAB GUERILLAS, KING HUSSEIN WARNED THAT THE MOVEMENT SHOULD GUARD AGAINST ALLOWING "SUSPICIOUS ELEMENTS" TO JOIN ITS RANKS.
