§ 38. Mr. Archer
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has received any reports on military co-operation between Jordan and Iraq; and whether he will make a statement on the future of British military assistance to Jordan.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
There is a long history of military co-operation between Jordan and its Arab friends, 691W including Iraq, although recent reports about the extent of the latter appear exaggerated. Military assistance will remain an important element in our close and friendly relations with Jordan.
