Download PDF for this date

Authoritative United Nations sources today said that King Hussein of Jordan is definitely coming to the UN General Assembly which opened its sessions here today. They did not indicate when or for how long the ruler of Jordan will come.

In Amman, capital of Jordan, King Hussein today warned the non-Communist nations to “beware of Nasser at the United Nations, ” who, he said, would probably attempt to pass himself off as the spokesman of the Arabs and as “the great neutralist, “

In a press interview the Jordanian monarch said that actually, President Nasser is likely to be no more than a supporter of Premier Khrushchev’s propaganda, “He will be representing himself only, ” King Hussein declared, “and perhaps a few friends he has in Cairo and Damascus, He will try to regain some of the prestige he has lost in the Middle East, “
