    Background: INTRODUCTION: Jordan has warned of what it calls the grave consequences inherent in Israel's plans to construct a canal across the occupied Gaza strip. The proposed canal would link the Mediterranean with the Dead Sea. The warning was delivered on Wednesday (29 April) by King Hussein at the opening of the fourth Arab Mineral Resources Conference in the capital of Amman.

    SYNOPSIS: The two-day conference was convened to map out a pan-Arab strategy for developing the Arab world's mineral resources.

    Representatives from Arab nations in Africa and the Middle East heard proposals put forward on a strategy to economically integrate these developments. The most important factor for success, they were told, is the availability of accurate geological information to exploit their riches within a fixed timetable.

    King Hussein said the Arab world's wealth in mineral resources had made it focus of imperialist nations who have dominated the region because of the backwardness and disunity of its people.

    But he also used the platform to denounce plans, approved last month by the Israeli government, to build the canal. The King called it a new act of aggression that threatens security and peace in the Arab region. He said it would harm Arab and Jordanian economies and development projects.
