Background: 56. cairo 28. a.a.--mr. dardiri ismail assistant secretary general of the arab league, said today was a "black day" for the league.
in the first official reaction here to the reported threat of the united arab republic to withdraw from the league.
the official middle east news agency said that the u.a.r. would withdraw from the arab league unless the league council "takes a decision concerning the campaign of insults and lies against the u.a.r.
the agency was reporting from shtoura, lebanon, where the u.a.r. delegation today walked out of a session of the league council discussing syrian complaints alleging u.a.r. interference in his internal affairs.
cairo radio at the same time broadcast a report that the u.a.r. had withdraw from the league, but the agency quoted the leader of the u.a.r. delegation akram deiri as having told the league council that the u.a.r. would withdraw unless the council took a decision.
mr. ismail, who is a sudanese, said here that if the league headquarters were moved from cairo he would resign.
the immediate reaction of observers was that if the u.a.r. had not actually withdraw it had issued a serious ultimatum.
some surprise was expressed by western observers, who said that while it became obvious in recent days that tempers were running high at shtura, and it was unlikely that the council would be able to resolve egyptian-syrian dispute, they had not foreseen such drastic action on the part of u.a.r.
there was little arab comment available here as most of the arab league officials, are at present atshtura, but, observers were already speculating on repercussions if the u.a.r. withdraw became effective.
the u.a.r. pays thirty one per cent of the league budget and is also the home of the league headquarters.
the league headquarters -- a tall imposing building over - looking the nile, on the site of a former british army barracks was built at a coast of about two million egyptian pounds.
there was also speculation about the future of mr. abdel khalig hassouna, the 63-year-old secretary general of the league. mr. hassouna whose second five year term as secretary general expires next month has been confidentially tipped. for reelection to his six-thousand-pound-a-year job.
however if the u.a.r. is no longer a member of the league it is doubtful whether he would be allowed to continue in office. (reuter 148-149) tf-ig

television speech of adenauer
58. berlin 28. a.a-- dr. konrad adenauer said in a television interview tonight that britain's entry into the common market and her association with a future political union of europe should be treated as two different problems.
"but, regarding the ... question whether britain should enter the common" market, i would say as a german and european: i welcome this west german chancellor added.
answering questions from west german journalists on the "meet the press programme", on, adenauer said a larger economic community could be of advantage.
"but if in political questions the opposition of one member counts -- i am thinking of nato-- then the whole course of history can be brought to a stop".
"therefore i think that one should not treat as one problem the question of britain's entry to the common market and the question of britain's joining the political union once she is in the common market", he added.
dr. adenauer said britain, norway, denmark, iceland and ireland wanted to join the common market and this posed the question of voting rights and of the political union.
"now we are six. five more would be added. six would become eleven."
"the question of voting rights within the common market has not become any easier -- nor has the question, which has never been fixed in writing, whether all members of the common market should also become members of the political union".
"i could very well imagine that this is not necessary, gentlemen", the chancellor said. (reuter 176/177)oa-ig

15 years ago turkey definitely decided to take her place near the u.s. against the threats and aggressions towards her independence and liberties.
