Jordanian and Syrian leaders ended reconciliation talks and pledged to improve relations that soured in 1978, when Syria accused Jordan of harboring members of the underground Muslim Brotherhood. Jordan's Prime Minister Zaid Rifai returned home after two days in Damascus. Political sources said the talks centered on differences concerning the Iran-Iraq War and the Palestine Liberation Organization. Jordan's King Hussein smoothed the way for improved ties with a statement denouncing members of the Muslim Brotherhood, which opposes the Syrian regime, as "outlaws."
