Ghana Queries Jordan on Banning Shipping Line Because of Israel

The Government of Ghana is still awaiting a reply to a query addressed to the Jordan Government through diplomatic channels about a report that Amman had blacklisted the Black Star Line, a Ghanian shipping line, because of Israeli participation in the company.

This was revealed here today by the Minister of Information. A press association had reported that the Black Star Lines was under boycott by all the Arab states. Local representatives of the line deprecated the effect of such action, noting that the company confined its activities to ports in West Africa, Britain and Europe.
