Background: The Tunisian Prime Minister, Mr. Bahi Ladgham, left the Jordanian capital of Amman yesterday (Tuesday) after leading the Arab Committee charged with mediating between the Palestinian guerrillas and Government forces in Jordan. Before he left to report to Tunisian President Habib Bourguiba, Mr. Ladgham told reporters he thought the events of the last month would never be repeated in Jordan.
Mr. Ladgham, who heads the Arab Higher Follow-up Committee, has left the Tunisian Ambassador-at-Large in charge of the committee's work.
Mr. Ladgham said that in his view the two factions in Jordan were now beginning to collaborate and they would eventually work together again their common enemy.
"We have been able to achieve the Amman agreement and all the protocols necessary to bring back the country into its normal life and everybody can notice that normal life is coming back to Amman. What I request from all parties in Jordan be they official, army, or our brethren fighting for their return to their country, is to completely put aside all doubts which have cashed and were at the basis of the confrontation."
