  • Description

    Egypt's President Anwar Sadat continued discussions on his country's call for an urgent meeting of the United Nations' Security Council when he went to the National Assembly in Cairo on Tuesday (4 May).

    Egypt is seeking United Nation's action against Israel for its "continued aggressions on holy places in Jerusalem and persistent violations" of UN resolutions and the Geneva Convention.

    Dr. Ahmed Esmat Abdel Meguid -- Egypt's permanent representative at the UN -- has been instructed to consult with the palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) on convening the Security Council.

    Israel refuses to deal with the PLO. But Mr. Ismail Fahmi -- the Egyptian Foreign Minister -- has said that the organisation should take part in the Security Council debate as the "legitimate representative of the Palestine people".

    Jerusalem and the West Bank area of the River Jordan were occupied by israel during the 1976 Middle East war. Seven people have been killed this year in clashes between Arabs and Israeli security forces.

    President Sadat has already discussed his country's call for the Security Council meeting with political leaders and editors from the newspapers, radio and television. His discussions at the National Assembly were opened by Mr. Sayed Marie -- the Speaker of the Assembly.
