AFTERMATH OF WAR: The International Front : In Jordan

Jordan, which alienated traditional Arab supporters with its support for Baghdad during the war, called for a lasting cease-fire to begin HEALING THE WOUNDS. “We are interested now in getting a cease-fire that will hold and give the Iraqis their basic needs,” Information Minister Ibrahim Izzeddine told a daily news briefing. He was optimistic that divisions within the Middle East would mend despite political problems ahead. “I don’t envisage a prolonged Arab division. . . . We need each other.”
