The World

December 27, 1985

Jordan's King Hussein will visit Syrian President Hafez Assad in Damascus on Saturday, capping four months of Arab League-sponsored talks aimed at easing years of animosity between the Middle Eastern nations, diplomatic sources said. They said they expect Assad to return the visit early next year to cement a rapprochement begun when the two countries' prime ministers met in Saudi Arabia in September. The two leaders last exchanged visits in 1975, before relations became deeply strained by differences over how to handle the Arab-Israeli conflict and, more recently, over the Iran-Iraq War.
