(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

That Transjordania will welcome the intended extension of Jewish activities to that territory, announced recently by Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organization, was the assertion made by the Transjordanian Premier Hassan, ###n an interview with the representative of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency here.

Premier Hassan expressed himself as being friendly to the idea of Arab Jewish cooperation.

“Transjordania, as well as Palestine, cannot be developed without Jewish capital,” Premier Hassan stated. “There ###s every reason for the Arabs to cooperate with the Jews in the upbuilding of both countries and I am convinced that the time is not distant when the question of Jewish activity in Transjordania will be taken up in a practical way. The Jews and the Arabs would both benefit from an influx of Jewish capital and energy across the Jordan,” he declared.
