    The Saudi Arabian Minister of State Mr. Omar Saqqar flew into Amman on Wednesday for two days of talks with representatives of Jordan's Government on the crisis between King Hussein's regime and the Palestine Resistance Movement.

    He told reporters: "Our problems are about to be solved...and I hope you will hear good news tonight."
    Less than a month after the Jordanian army drove the commandos from their bases in stiff fighting in the northern hills and the Jordan valley, Arab efforts to bring the two sides together seem to be reaching a climax.
