King Hussein calls for US-Iraqi dialogue

King Hussein of Jordan has repeated his call for direct talks between Iraq and the United States to resolve their problems.

Speaking on Radio Monte Carlo, King Hussein said that only direct contact could clear the air and allow both parties to move forward.

He rejected any idea that such a dialogue hinged on the overthrow of the Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, and said he did not believe any country or organisation had the right to change the government of another country.
