Title: King Hussein of Jordan
Moderator: Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Person Interviewed: Hussein, King
Abstract: Host Peter Krogh interviews King Hussein in Amman, Jordan.
Description: This episode is an unedited version of Peter Krogh's interview with King Hussein of Jordan. 1985 found Jordan ambitiously attempting to expand diplomacy in the perpetually tumultuous Middle East. To the north, Israel was beginning a phased withdrawal from Lebanon; to the east, Iraq and Iran were engaged in the fifth year of a bitter and costly war; to the west lay Israel and the disputed West Bank. In the midst of a renewed push for a just and durable peace, King Hussein placed special emphasis on diplomatic efforts, attempting to engage the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) in direct peace talks with Israel. In this interview King Hussein and host Peter Krogh discuss the importance of involving all Arab nations in the peace process, the need to seek international support in order to create any lasting agreement, and the role of military power and terrorism in the process. The interview also examines Jordan's Cold War relations with the United States and the Soviet Union, as well as the roles that both countries play in the region and in the diplomatic process.
