  • Description

    Sudanese President Jaafar el Nimeiry arrived at Tripoli on Tuesday (31 August) to attend celebrations marking the second anniversary of the revolution which toppled the Libyan monarchy. It was President Nimeiry's first visit abroad since the abortive coup against his regime in July.

    Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and his wife were at Tripoli airport with members of the Revolutionary Council, ministers and senior army officers to welcome the Sudanese party, which also included Foreign Minister Mansour Khaled and Education Minister Dr. Mohi el Din Sabir.

    President Nimeiry arrived to find Libya decorated with flags of Egypt, Syria and Libya, in preparation for the three-nation referendum on federation due to take place the following day (1 Sept.).
