Background: King Hussein of Jordan has had talks in Paris with French leaders following his arrival from Egypt, the United States, and Britain during a world tour. On Sunday evening (13th December) he welcomed French Foreign Minister Maurice Schumann to his hotel to discuss various issues, including the Middle East Peace Mission.
King Hussein, tired after his travels, was not available to comment on the meeting, but Mr Schumann told reporters they had examined the conditions under which the Jarring Peace Mission might resume with best chances of success. King Hussein's and France's ideas on the matter appeared to be very close, he said. King Hussein also mentioned the rather optimistic impressions he had of his visit to Washington.
