The World

October 31, 1985

President Reagan will not withdraw his proposal to sell arms to Jordan despite agreeing to delay the transfer until March 1, 1986, a State Department official said. Richard W. Murphy, the department's senior Mideast expert, said, however, that the Administration is sensitive to the strong congressional opposition to the sale of warplanes and anti-aircraft missiles to Jordan and that any action taken will not defy Congress. The Senate blocked the $1.9-billion sale until next year unless meaningful Israeli-Jordanian peace talks take place.
