June 1, 2004 at 9:54 AM

AMMAN, Jordan, June 1 (UPI) -- Jordan's private Amman National University said Tuesday it does not intend to open a branch in Israel, despite Israeli press reports.

University President Ahmed Horani told UPI the institution's policy "does not allow opening such a branch under the existing political conditions."

He said university professors who met with Israeli academicians recently were acting individually and not on behalf of the institution.

Israel's daily Yediot Ahronot said Israeli Education Minister Limor Livnat met with university delegates Monday and promised to help them set up a branch in Israel.

Large numbers of Israeli Arabs are enrolled in the university in Amman.
