"I don't interpret what King Hussein said as ruling out any role in the negotiations," Kissinger said He said Hussein, an Arab moderate who drove anti- Israeli guerrillas out of Jordan, is "trying to maneuver to mate very sure that tbe other Arabs understand that be is not rushing at tbe first opportunity." "Tbe "treads that were started at Camp David seem to me to make it probable that be will come in." Kissinger saxi. Brzezinski explained Hussein's reluctance to join peace talks with Israel by saying "tbe other Arab parties cannot be expected to jump in instantly.' But be predicted that "at some poinL and I hope ooite soon, they will see dear-cut benefits for tbemselves in entering into such a process." r Kissinger said be wasnt surprised by initial criticism from Palestinian leaders on tbe West Bank and Gaia Strip but d they also would JOSE, in tbe peace process "1 tmrA iha'. the other Arab leaders will realize thai tbe way to get back any territory s'by means of the agreement that has been signed," be said.

Nicargua U PI J — An a n t i government coalition of business and political leaders has decided to extend indefinitely their motith-jong general strike aimed at ousting President Anastasio Somoza. political sources said Sunday. The sources said leaders of the Broad Opposition Front, representing labor, business and political parties from the far left to the far right, met Saturday night at a secret location because aany of them are in hiding to avoid arrest- "Tbey sleep in different homes every night," one source sajci Tbe sources said one of the Front members. National Democratic Movement President Alfonso Robeio. a 4C l -year- old mfHjonaire cooking oil manufactorer. proposed an end to the shutdown. "But the oiher members of tbe Front were opposed to that," they said. "So the strike contiatKS."' In addition, they said, the Front decided to disassociate itself from an business leader for the opposition to hold negotiations with the Somoza regime to end the Nicaraguan civil war. Somoza also took a hard- line approach, rejecting proposed mediation by three other Latin-American nations — Mexico. Colombia and the Dominican Republic — and insisting he will serve out bis term until 1981. The majority of the Front members want no part of any solution that involves Somoza himself. They insist on his removal as a precondition for any permanent political solution for Nicaragua. With the end of open fighting in the two-week civil war between Somoza's National Guard troops and the Sandinista guerrillas, the focus of the campaign to oust the 41-year Somoza dynasty in the Central American nation of 2.5 million people shifted back to the nationwide strike. Organizers say it has been 80 percent "effective, although Somoza himself says half the businesses are open.
