    Background: The Jordanian and American governments on Sunday (20 May) signed a six-million dollar (2,500,000 sterling) wheat deal, in a ceremony at Amman, Jordan.

    Under the terms of the agreement, Jordan will purchase 35-thousand tons of wheat and 35-thousand tons of corn from the United States. The deal is to be financed by an extended loan, at an advantageous rate of interest over 20 years.

    Jordan applied to the United States to purchase wheat and corn, following a disastrous drought this season, causing shortages at home.

    A similar purchase of wheat from the United States has been made by Egypt. Syria, Lebanon and Algeria are reported to be considering similar moves.
