995. To Wallace Murray from Landis. Have been informed by the British that Jordan, British Minister to Saudi Arabia, will be in Cairo next Monday for the Middle East Financial Conference.

In the light of the existing Saudi Arabian situation, I would be pleased to receive any instructions that you may have on this matter.
