Saudi Arabia has agreed to provide Jordan with half its daily oil needs, Jordanian officials said Wednesday, in a move that observers said is aimed at weaning Jordan from its reluctance to apply a U.N. trade embargo against Iraq. The provision of oil would help cushion some of the cost for Jordan of enforcing an embargo against Iraq, which invaded Kuwait three weeks ago. For the past decade, Jordan has received 90% of its crude from Iraq.
