  • Description

    IN BEIRUT, THE LEBANESE ASSEMBLY OF DEPUTIES MET YESTERDAY FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE APRIL THE 25TH. THE COUNTRY HAS BEEN WITHOUT A GOVERNMENT FOR THE PAST FIVE WEEKS FOLLOWING THE CRISIS OVER THE ACTIVITIES OF PALESTINE COMMANDOS, BUT AFTER YESTERDAY'S ASSEMBLY MEETING, PREMIER DESIGNATE RASHID KARAMI SPOKE ON RADIO IN FAVOUR OF CO-OPERATION WITH THE COMMANDO GROUPS.

    IN A RADIO STATEMENT AFTER THE ASSEMBLY MEETING, MR. KARAMI SAID THAT THE PRINCIPLE OF CO-OPERATING WITH THE PALESTINE COMMANDOS WAS THE SOUNDEST SOLUTION WHICH DID NOT CONFLICT WITH THE LEBANON'S SAFETY AND SOVEREIGNTY. THE PRINCIPLE, HE SAID, HAS BEEN LAID DOWN FOLLOWING CONSULTATIONS FOR THE FORMING OF A NEW GOVERNMENT.

    EARLIER, IN A NATION-WIDE BROADCAST, PRESIDENT HELOU HAD SAID THAT ALTHOUGH THE LEBANON SUPPORTED COMMANDO ACTION AGAINST ISRAEL, IT COULD NOT DO SO AT THE EXPENSE OF ITS OWN SOVEREIGNTY AND SAFETY.
