    Background: President Nasser of Egypt and Colonel Muammar Gaddafi of Libya attended a three hour military parade in Khartoum on Monday (May 25) marking the first anniversary of the Sudanese Revolution. The two leaders are also to hold discussions with Major-General Jaafar Mohammed El-Nimeiry of Sudan on their Tripartite alliance which came into being late last year.

    The three leaders watched a display a display of modern aircraft and helicopters as well as amphibious vehicles and armoured units. Token military units from Egypt and Libya took part, symbolising solidarity between the three countries since they concluded a political, military and cultural cooperation pact last December.

    The two-day Summit Conference will be the third since the Tripoli pact was signed. In the past few months the three countries have begun a number of joint development programmes and recently an agreement on economic and technical cooperation was signed in Cairo for the establishing of a Joint Bank, an increase of trade, and freedom of movement for people and capital.

    Top items on the agenda are the Alliance's policy towards the United States, and latest situation on the military front.
