Negotiations for an Anglo-Arab treaty, conducted by Sir Herbert Samuel, British High Commissioner in Palestine, and King Hussein of the Hedjas, are near successful completion according to reports in the Arab press today. The reports indicate that King Hussein conceded all of the principal questions to Great Britain. Whether or not recognition of the Balfour Declaration which Great Britain insisted on and to which the Arabs were loathe to agree, is included in these questions, is not known.
After the failure of his conferences with Arab notables at Amman and later at Shuna because of dissatisfaction with the treaty negotiated by his representative in London, Naji-el-Assil, Husaein entered into direct negotiation with Sir Herbert Samuel at the request of the British Government, with the result now reported in the Arab press.
