  • Description

    President Hafez al-Assad of Syria returned home on Monday (4 February) after a brief visit to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait for talks on Middle East developments.

    The President arrived in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, on 4 February with a delegation which included the Saudi Foreign Minister, Mr. Abdel-Halim Khaddam. They were welcomed at the airport by King Faisal. Later in the day, President Assad and the King held talks at the Presidential Palace. These were described in Damascus as "very delicate and crucial".

    On Sunday (3 February) President Assad made an overnight stop in Kuwait where he had a four hour meeting with the Emir, Sheikh Sabah al Sali??? Sabah. President Assad's discussions in both Saudi Arabia and Kuwait apparently covered the continued use of Arab oil as a bargaining weapon and Syria's attitude towards a separation agreement with Israel concerning troops on the Gelan Heights.
