    Background: Ireland's Foreign Minister Garret Fitzgerald visited Jordan on Tuesday (20 May) and stressed the importance of the EEC and the Arab world. Ireland and Jordan are leading current talks between the European Economic Community (EEC) and the Arab League.

    Mr. Fitzgerald, the current Chairman of the EEC Ministerial Council, was in Jordan on a one-day visit as part of a six-day tour of four Arab countries.

    The Irish Minister had talks with Jordanian Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Zeid Al-Rifai. In a statement issued after these talks both sides stressed the importance of the EEC and the need for dialogue with the Arab World.

    Later, Mr. Fitzgerald told reporters the recent EEC-Israeli trade agreements had been misunderstood in the Arab world. He also discussed Jordan's relationship with the EEC and the steps taken so far to conclude a mutual agreement.

    The statement said Mr. Rifai had accepted an invitation to visit Ireland.
