Background: President Nasser and Libyan leader, Colonel, Muammar Gaddafi, resumed consultations on the internal conflict in Jordan and the Middle East military situation on Friday (June 12) in Cairo. But first they prayed at Elsaida Zeineb Mosque.
Colonel Gaddafi arrived in Cairo on Wednesday (June 10) at the end of a ten-day tour of Iraq, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon during which he gave details of his plan for strengthening the eastern front against Israel.
The Libyan leader blamed the fighting between guerrillas and regular forces in Jordan on betrayal by the extreme left and treason on the extreme right. President Nasser called on both sides to stop the bloodshed among "comrades of arms and brothers of the same destiny".
Both King Hussein and the Arab Guerrilla leader Yasser Arafat were innocent of trying to plunge Jordan into a civil war, Colonel Gaddafi said. Mr. Arafat had earlier appealed to President Nasser and Colonel Gaddafi to do all they could to stop the fighting in Jordan.
On Friday night Colonel Gaddafi delivered a ten-minute address to a special meeting of the National Assembly. The Libyan leader reported on his recent tour of Arab nations.
