  • Description

    Egyptian President Anwar Sadat on Wednesday (20 June) held a five-hour meeting with his Cabinet Ministers to discuss the results of his recent talks with president Muammar Gaddafi on the planned merger between the two countries.

    President Sadat returned last week (14 June) from Tripoli, where he had discussed the progress of plans for the Egyptian-Libyan merger, which is due to take palace at the end of this year. The two countries are to form a new United Arab Republic.

    Egyptian Information Ministers Mourad Ghalab said after the Cabinet meeting that the Ministers had also discussed President Sadat's talks with Syrian President Hafez Al Assad last Week. These were mainly concerned with efforts to normalised relation between Syria and Lebanon.

    Dr. Ghaleb said the Cabinet had formed a ministerial committee, under Deputy Premier Abel Hatem, to discuss the Egyptian-Libyan merger.

    President Sadat is due to meet Col. Gaddafi again in July to endorse draft laws drawn up by the various merger committees and to review any further steps that are necessary.
