Hussein to Take Persian Gulf Peace Efforts to Emirates

From Reuters

King Hussein of Jordan will visit the United Arab Emirates today as part of a Gulf tour, his first since he hosted the Arab summit last month, diplomatic sources said.

They said he will discuss with regional leaders the Iran- Iraq War and his efforts to reconcile Syria and Iraq, at loggerheads ideologically and politically for nearly a decade.

Arab League leaders at their November summit reported headway in their bid to reconcile the two countries and empowered King Hussein to continue his efforts.
