Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the recent visit to London of the Arab delegation led by His Majesty King Hussein of Jordan.

Mr. Hurd

The Arab League delegation led by King Hussein of Jordan paid a successful visit to London on 18 March. There was a good discussion of the situation in the Middle East. The Arab side presented the conclusions of the Fez summit and gave its assessment of the present situation and the prospects for progress towards peace. We welcomed the commitment of the Arab states to seek a peaceful resolution of the Arab/Israel conflict, explained our own policy and stressed the critical need to make use of the opening towards peace represented by President Reagan's initiative.
