    Background: AT THE RAGHADAN PALACE IN AMMAN, KING HUSSEIN JAN 17 ACCEPTED THE CREDENTIALS OF THE FIRST KUWAITI AMBASSADOR TO JORDAN. THE NEW ENVOY IS KHALID SULAIMAN AL-WASANI; AND FOLLOWING THE IMPRESSIVE CEREMONIAL ASSOCIATED WITH THE OCCASION, HE INTRODUCED THE YOUNG KING TO THE OFFICIALS OF THE KUWAIT EMBASSY IN AMMAN.

    THE FOLLOWING DAY, HOWEVER, THE CLOUDS GATHERED. A YEAR OF APPARENTLY CORDIAL RELATIONS BETWEEN JORDAN AND IRAQ WAS BROKEN BY THE IRAQ GOVERNMENT'S DECISION TO RECALL BRIGADIER ABDUL KARIM SHAKER FROM AMMAN. THE REASON - KING HUSSEIN HAD ACCEPTED THE LETTERS OF CREDENCE OF THE FIRST KUWAITI AMBASSADOR.

    THE OFFICIAL IRAQ NEWS AGENCY, ANNOUNCING THE GOVERNMENT'S DECISION, REFERRED TO A STATEMENT LAST MONTH BY HASHIM JAWAD, THE IRAQ FOREIGN MINISTER, THAT IRAQ WOULD RECONSIDER HER RELATIONS WITH ANY STATE WHICH ESTABLISHED DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH "KUWAIT SHEIKS".

    WASFI AL-TAL, THE JORDANIAN AMBASSADOR TO BAGHDAD, RETURNED TO AMMAN JAN 17. HE WAS DESPATCHED TO IRAQ IN DECEMBER 1960 AFTER THE RESUMPTION OF RELATIONS WHICH WERE DISRUPTED BY THE JULY REVOLUTION IN IRAQ FOUR YEARS AGO.
