  • Description

    The Arab Defence Chiefs of Staff began a two-day meeting in Cairo on Monday (19 May) at the Arab League Headquarters.

    The meeting, under the chairmanship of Egypt's General Mahmad Aly Fahmy--who is also Assistant Military Secretary-General of the Arab League--was to discuss military contingencies for the Middle East.

    Although the meeting is part of the normal machinery of the Arab Defence Council, it provides a special opportunity for the military leaders of Egypt, Syria and Jordan--coming as it does on the heels of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat's tour of front-line Arab countries--to discuss details of strategy.

    The meeting also comes at a time when a leading Egyptian newspaper, the semi-official Al Ahram, has reported that the United States and the Soviet Union have agreed to halt all further arms supplies to the Middle East.

    This and other matters will be discussed and passed on for consideration and further security at the forthcoming Arab summit meeting in Mogadishu.
