CAIRO - King Hussein of Jordan and the Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak, ended three years of bitterness and recriminations caused by Jordan's apparent sympathy for Iraq over its invasion of Kuwait in 1990, Reuter reports.

It was the King's first official visit since he and Mr Mubarak fell out after the invasion, each accusing the other of undermining efforts to resolve the crisis peacefully.

King Hussein said after two hours of talks with Mr Mubarak: 'I am happy to be here to visit Egypt and return as we were so we can discuss the important issues in this delicate period.' Asked whether the visit marked the resumption of normal relations, he said: 'Yes, this is my feeling.'
