  • Description

    The President of Algeria, Mr. Houari Boumedienne, has begun talks with Soviet leaders in Moscow.

    SYNOPSIS: On Monday (16 October 1978) it was reported that Mr. Boumedienne had agreed with the Soviet President and Communist Party leader, Mr. Leonid Brezhnev, that the Camp David accords had made a Middle East settlement more difficult. Prime Minister Alexei Kosygin also attended the talks. The view taken at the talks, according to the Soviet news agency, Tass, was that the accords were a conspiracy between Egypt and Israel. Tass added that the Camp David accords merely complicated the Middle East situation.

    During Mr. Boumedienne's visit there has been speculation that a coup was carried out in his absence. Before his arrival in Moscow, Mr. Boumedienne had not been seen in public for more than three weeks. President Boumedienne has been one of the most outspoken critics of the Camp David accords. Algeria is one of several hard-line Arab states which refuse to recognise the Camp David agreements.
