  • Description

    King Hussein of Jordan and President Nasser of the United Arab Republic began crucial talks on the Middle East situation on Thursday (August 20) within an hour of the Jordanian Monarch arriving in Cairo for a three-day stay.

    The prime topic for the two Arab leaders, according to informed reporters, are their policies on issues which may emerge in indirect peace talks with Israel following the Middle East ceasefire.

    Their discussions will also be closely concerned with the challenge of the Palestinian guerrillas in Jordan to the ceasefire and the peace moves, as well as the strained relations with Iraq, which supports the Palestine resistance in rejecting the American peace initiative.

    The compass of the subjects under review during the three days of talks was emphasised by the delegation accompanying King Hussein. It included his brother, Prince Mohammed, Prime Minister Abdel-Moneim Al-Rifai and Foreign Minister, Anton Atallah.

    King Hussein, in military uniform, was met by President Nasser at Cairo Airport. The Egyptian leader embraced him as a 21-gun salute was fired. The meeting of the Jordanian and UAR leaders appeared to be sincerely warm. It was their first direct contact since their acceptance of the American Peace Plan.
