    SADAT: "Saddam Hussein, it appears after the Iranian revolution started, it appears that he has suddenly remembered that he has surrendered certain lands and certain concessions in Shatt al Arab. The others in Iran, it appears also that they have found, and this is mainly because Khomeini has been ill-treated in Iraq before he left to France. And he was sent out on the demand of the Shah by Saddam Hussein, to France. So I wonder, the fate of the Arabs and Moslems in this area now is under certain complexes from Saddam towards Iran and from Khomeini towards Iraq and the Arab world. And as I said, it really is a tragedy to give the teenagers our problems."
