Download PDF for this date

The Jordanian Ambassador to London, Midhet Juma, denied today in a letter to the Times of London that his Government might consider a separate peace settlement with Israel. “King Hussein and the Prime Minister of Jordan,” he wrote, “have emphasized that the Palestine problem is the problem of all the Arabs, and that Jordan will never depart from the unanimity of the Arab nations on this vital issue.” He said there is no truth whatever in speculations to the contrary.”
