Prime Minister Shimon Peres said Israel has engaged in “quiet diplomacy” with Jordan since King Hussein’s February break with the Palestine Liberation Organization. “Some very interesting things have happened,” Peres said in a television interview. “At this stage, it is more in understanding than in agreement.” However, Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir contended that the two countries have made little progress toward a peace treaty, adding that relations have not gone beyond the “no war, no peace” that has prevailed since the 1967 Middle East War.
