    Background: INTRODUCTION: Jordan and the Palestine Liberation Organisation -- the PLO -- have ended their first talks for seven years. According to the PLO delegation leader, Dr. Khaled al-Fahoum, the meeting was 'very successful'.

    SYNOPSIS: The talks took place in the Jordanian border town of Ramtha, on the Syrian frontier. The PLO moved their main base of political operations to Syria in 1970 when they were evicted from Jordan in a bloody clash with government forces. Relations between Jordan and the PLO are now vital to the proposed reconvention of the Geneva Middle East peace talks.

    King Hussein of Jordan has indicated his willingness to resume the 1973 Geneva Conference on the basis of the creation of an independent Palestine on the Israeli-occupied West Bank, annexed from Jordan in the 1976 war. Delegation leader, Mr. Fahoum, told newsmen the first round of talks would be followed by a second, before the PLO parliament-in-exile met to discuss Genera. During the talks, Jordan reiterated that it recognised the PLO as sole Palestinian representatives.
