Israel, Jordan sign accord

JERUSALEM, Dec. 4 (JTA) — Israel and Jordan have signed an agreement to enable the direct transport of goods between the two countries. Until now, commercial goods had to be transferred between trucks at border crossings. The accord, signed Monday in the Jordanian capital of Amman, came after months of negotiations. It does not include provisions for goods shipped between Jordan and the Palestinian Authority.
