The special Israel-Jordan armistice commission on Jerusalem problems, which had suspended meetings for a number of months, resumed sessions yesterday.

U.N. truce chief Maj. Gen. William E. Riley, who attended the session, stressed the importance of the resumption of work by the committee and the many possibilities for its work to cement relations between the two countries. The heads of both delegations to the committee also emphasized the importance of solving the major problems in Jerusalem still outstanding between the nations.
