Jordan Premier Says He Will Never Hold Peace Talks with Israel

“Jordan’s policy with regard to the Jews will never change. We shall never enter into negotiations leading to peace with them, ” Abdul Huda Pasha, new Jordan Premier, told the Times of London in an interview published here today.

The Premier, who was brought to power following the resignation of the el-Mulki government over a British note advising Jordan to confer with Israel over the armistice agreement, said that his government would not give any consideration “to pressure from any foreign power. ” He said that Jordan would act in accordance with the views of the Arab states in relation to Israel.
