    Background: A 10-MAN SOVIET ECONOMIC DELEGATION ARRIVED IN AMMAN, JORDAN, YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY), TO DISCUSS ECONOMIC AND TECHNICAL AID FOR THE COUNTRY. AS WELL AS ECONOMIC AND TECHNICAL MATTERS, THE DELEGATION IS ALSO EXPECTED TO RAISE THE QUESTION OF MILITARY AID FROM THE SOVIET UNION TO JORDAN.

    THE MEMBERS OF THE SOVIET DELEGATION BEGAN TALKS WITH THEIR JORDANIAN COUNTERPARTS AS SOON AS THEY ARRIVED. LEADING THE SOVIET TEAM WAS MR TARASOV, VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE SOVIET FOREIGN ECONOMIC CO-OPERATIVE COMMITTEE. THE JORDANIAN GROUP FOR THE TALKS WAS HEADED BY MR HATIM AL-ZOUBI, ECONOMICS MINISTRY BUILDING IN AMMAN.

    KING HUSSEIN OF JORDAN WAS NOT IN AMMAN TO GREET THE DELEGATION. HE HAD LEFT ONLY AN HOUR EARLIER FOR TALKS WITH KING FAISAL OF SAUDI ARABIA.

    JORDAN NEEDS URGENTLY TO RECONSTITUTE HER AIR FORCE, DESTROYED DURING THE JUNE SIX-DAY WAR. THE SOVIET UNION ALREADY SUPPLIES CUT-PRICE MIG'S TO SYRIA, EGYPT AND IRAQ.
