Washington (JTA) — King
Hussein of Jordan reiterated
Sunday that the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization must be a
participant in Middle East peace
negotiations, but indicated that
to do so the PLO must abandon
its terrorist activities.
"It is obvious for the PLO to
participate in a peace process in
the future ... then they obvi-
ously have to determine what
action they have to take to en-
able them to play their part,"
Hussein said in an appearance
from Amman on NBC-TV's Meet
the Press.
While Hussein was vague
about his talks last week with
PLO chief Yasir Arafat, he said
they did discuss the recent "cy-
cle of violence" in the Middle
East which the King said in-
cluded the murder of three Is-
raelis in Cyprus, the Israeli raid
on PLO headquarters in Tunis,
the hijacking of the Achile
Lauro, and the PLO refusal to
sign a statement in London
which led to the cancellation of
talks between the British and a
joint Jordanian-PLO delegation.
On Saturday, Hussein ad-
dressed the opening session of
the Jordanian Parliament. The
speech contained little to indi-
cate a breakthrough in the Mid-
dle East, but it was nonetheless
enough to throw the Israeli
political scene into controversy.
Although the office of Premier
Shimon Peres found some satis-
faction with Hussein's remarks,
the Foreign Ministry — headed
by Likud leader Yitzhak Shamir
— found fault with the sub-
stance of the speech. The split of
opinion between the Prime
Minister's Office and the
Foreign Ministry highlighted
the lingering divisions within
the unity government over
Mideast peace efforts.
The Prime Minister's Office
regarded as significant that
Hussein, in his speech, men-
tioned the Palestine Liberation
Organization only briefly. Hus-
sein's reference to an interna-
tional peace conference includ-
ing the PLO was made in gen-
eral terms, sources close to
Peres noted.
The sources said the speech
was a step forward in the peace
process, adding that the con-
troversy over the nature of the
international conference was
merely a technical matter.
But Shamir's office was dis-
turbed by the actual demand for
an international conference, and
by the sharply worded attack
against the Israeli occupation in
the West Bank, described by the
King as the most brutal and re-
lentless occupation and coloniza-
tion in contemporary history.
Likud sources also noted that
the King did not mention the
Peres peace initiative in his ad-
dress.
In Washington last week, Sec-
retary of State George Shultz
again ruled out PLO participa-
tion in Middle East peace
negotiations as long as it con-
tinues to commit acts of violence
against Israel.
"The PLO has been involved
in recent weeks in acts of terror

and violence," Shultz said at a
press conference. "I don't see
how those who are perpetrating
terror and violence against one
of the parties deserve a place at
the peace table."
Shultz said that those who
should be participants in the
negotiations should be "ready to
sit down with Israel and try to
work out" a peaceful solution
based on United Nations Secu-
rity Council Resolutions 242 and
338.
In other news on possible
Mideast talks, Peres' communi-
cations advisor, Uri Savir, de-
nied Friday all reports that Is-
rael had presented specific peace
plans to Jordan.
The official communique is-
sued by the Premier's office in
Jerusalem, said there had been
no contacts with Jordanian offi-
cials, and no plan was presented
before Jordan.
The denial came following re-
ports on a secret documents
which called for an Israeli-
Jordanian confederation in the
West Bank. The Tehiya Move-
ment insisted last Thursday
that such a document existed,
despite earlier denials by Peres.
Reports on offers made to Jor-
dan by Israel were also initiated
by Industry and Commerce
Minister Ariel Sharon, and by
the daily Haaretz.
According to the Tehiya, the
secret document was composed
by Avraham Tamir, director
general of the Premier's office —
and it served as working paper
in recent secret negotiations
with Jordan.
Meanwhile, Mapam Knesseter
Haika Grossman asked Shamir
whether emissaries of her party
would also enjoy ministry assis-
tance when they travel through-
out the world in their efforts to
gain support for the peace proc-
ess.
Grossman reacted to a news
report last week that the
Foreign Minister's office asked
the Israeli Embassy in Wash-
ington to assist a Gush Enunim
delegation which is due to visit
the U.S. shortly.

Apartheid Hit

United Nations (JTA) — Is-
rael last week sharply de-
nounced South Africa's policy of
apartheid, saying it was against
Jewish tradition and values and
called on the Pretoria govern-
ment to immediately stop its
apartheid system.
Addressing the General As-
sembly's debate on apartheid,
Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's
Ambassador to the UN, also
charged that the Arabs, who are
condemning Israel for its ties
with South Africa, have more
dealngs with the South African
government than Israel does.
According to Netanyahu, 95
percent of the oil imported to
South Africa comes from Arab
sources. He said that Israel's
trade with South Africa is mar-
ginal and amounts to only .4
percent of that country's total
foreign trade.
