  • Description

    PRESIDENT NASSER HAS AGREED TO MEET KING FAISAL OF SAUDI ARABIA IN KHARTOUM TO DISCUSS A SETTLEMENT OF THE YEMEN CIVIL WAR, SUDANESE PREMIER MOHAMED AHMED MAHGOUB SAID TODAY IN CAIRO.

    MR MAHGOUB ARRIVED IN CAIRO YESTERDAY TO PUT A MEDIATION PROPOSAL BEFORE PRESIDENT NASSER. HE WAS GREETED AT THE AIRPORT BY THE EGYPTIAN VICE-PRESIDENT, EL SAYED ZAKARIAH MOHIEDDIN; THE UAR FOREIGN MINISTER, MAHMOUD RIAD AND PRESIDENT NASSER'S PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE HASSAN SABRY EL KOLY.

    THE MEETING BETWEEN PRESIDENT NASSER AND PREMIER MAHGOUB TOOK PLACE AT THE EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT'S OFFICIAL RESIDENCE AT MANCIET EL BAKRI.

    MR ??? ARRIVED IN EGYPT AFTER WALKS WITH KING FAISAL IN JEDDAH, DURING WHICH THE SAUDI MONARCH AGREED TO STOP AID TO THE YEMEN, ROYALISTS IF PRESIDENT NASSER ??? HIS TROOPS.

    EGYPTIAN TROOPS ARE IN THE YEMEN TO SUPPORT THE REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT IN THE WAR WHICH STARTED WHEN THE ROYALISTS WERE OUSTED IN A MILITARY COUP IN 1962. A PEACE AGREEMENT SIGNED IN 1965 BY PRESIDENT NASSER AND KING FAISAL PROVED UNSUCCESSFUL AND WAS NEVER IMPLEMENTED.

    IT IS BELIEVED THAT PROPOSALS INCLUDE A PLAN FOR SUDANESE, ALGERIAN AND TUNISIAN TROOPS TO REPLACE EGYPTIAN FORCES, FOLLOWED BY A PLEBISCITE TO DECIDE THE FUTURE GOVERNMENT OF THE YEMEN.
