The relationship between Israel, Turkey and Jordan discussed at the October conference held at King's College in co-operation with BIPAC, should serve as a model for the whole Middle East. It is based on mutual respect for the political imperatives of each country, the shared understanding of the primacy of security, and the urgent need to combat terrorism and keep fanatic regimes possessing non-conventional arms.

Yet it is by no means a military alliance and it threatens no one. It is primarily a relationship whose goal is to promote peace, stability and prosperity. We would all consider it a salutary development if others joined us in working towards this goal.

A conference in which the region's problems and prospects are discussed by distinguished leaders and experts helps us find the most effective means to attain peace and security for all the peoples of the Middle East.
