Foreign Minister Shimon Peres has appealed to King Hussein of Jordan to take a “dramatic step” to allay Israel’s fears over a Middle East peace conference, Maariv reported Wednesday. It said that Peres asked Hussein to influence Israeli public opinion by indicating he would hold direct talks with Israel within the framework of a United Nations-sponsored conference. Peres reportedly said the message passed orally to Hussein through a foreign intermediary.
