  • Description

    MR. IBRAHIM MAKHOS, THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF SYRIA AND MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS, CALLED ON PRESIDENT BOUMEDIENNE OF ALGERIA YESTERDAY (MONDAY) TO EXCHANGE VIEWS ON THE FUTURE OF THE ARAB COUNTRIES. AT A PRESS CONFERENCE, AFTER HIS ARRIVAL IN ALGERIA, ON SUNDAY, MR. MAKHOS SAID THAT HIS VISIT WAS DESIGNED TO UNITE THE EFFORTS OF THE ARAB COUNTRIES IN ERASING TRACES OF IMPERIALIST AGGRESSION.

    DURING HIS PRESS CONFERENCE, MR. MAKHOS LIKENED THE SITUATION EXISTING IN PALESTINE TO THAT OF ALGERIA, SOME YEARS AGO. HE SAID THAT THE ALGERIANS SPONTANEOUSLY CHOSE TO FIGHT, WITHOUT WAITING FOR HELP FROM ANY COUNTRY. HE SAID THAT A "PEOPLE'S FIGHT" WAS THE ONLY WAY FOR THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE TO LIBERATE THEIR COUNTRY.

    HE ALSO DREW A PARALLEL BETWEEN THE FIGHT OF THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE AND THE RESISTANCE BY THE FRENCH AND THE PEOPLES OF THE SOVIET UNION AGAINST NAZISM DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR.

    THE SYRIAN VICE PRESIDENT WAS REPORTED TO HAVE SAID THAT AS ISRAEL WAS FOUNDED ON LAND WHICH WAS NOT ITS OWN, ITS POLICIES REST ON AGGRESSION AND EXPANSIONISM AND EACH NEW WAR IS CONSIDERED A NEW STRIDE IN THE SCHEME DESIGNED BY WORLD ZIONISM WHICH CONSISTS OF MAKING ISRAEL A STATE WHICH EXTENDS FROM THE EUPHRATES TO THE NILE.
