  • Description

    Egyptian President Anwar Sadat yesterday (16 August) reasserted his country's deadline for resolving the confrontation with Israel. Addressing leaders of students' unions, the President said the United Arab Republic was determined to settle matters either politically or militarily before the end of this year.

    The President's speech was part of his "direct dialogue with the people" campaign which he has recently begun to discuss political, military, economic and other problems with farmers, workers, intellectuals, soldiers and other groups.

    Meanwhile Egyptian War Minister General Mohamed Sadek yesterday told newly graduated reserve officers that there was no hope for a peaceful settlement of the crisis.

    "Force is the only alternative left to liberate our usurped land", the General said.
