HC Deb 08 May 1986 vol 97 c224W
Mr. Latham

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what reports he has received from Her Majesty's ambassador in Amman about the meeting there on 28 April of the recently created Fatah Supreme Military Council, in opposition to Yasir Arafat, under the chairmanship of Atallah Muhammad Atallah; and what degree of Arab support this organisation is believed to have.

Mr. Renton

We have noted this meeting and Mr. Arafat's criticism of it, but have no evidence of the degree of Arab support for the new organisation.
