  • Description

    The Lebanese Prime Minister, Mr. Takyeddine Solh, today (Sunday January 13) welcomed the of a union between Libya and Tunisia.

    Mr. Solh, speaking in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, said any union between Arab nations was a good thing for the Arab world as a whole.

    Libya and Tunisia announced on Saturday they planned to merge to become the Islamic Arab Republic, with one flag, a unified Army and one constitution.

    Algeria has described the merger as an "artificial creation" with little chance of success, while Egypt has declared its support for the proposed new Republic.

    Lebanon's Prime Minister said Libya would now form the link between the eastern and western wings of the Arab world. He said unity was essential in the Arab struggle for liberation.

    The Libya-Tunisia merger dominated newspaper headlines in Beirut. But there was little editorial comment on the subject.
