  • Description

    INTRODUCTION: President Assad of Syria has promised the Arab Population of the Israeli occupied West Bank that "the day of salvation will inevitably come". This day would come, he told a framers' meeting in Damascus, Syria, despite "arms stockpiling by the enemy, and its arrogance".

    SYNOPSIS: The Syrian President, a major figure in Middle East affairs, was opening the fourth Congress of the Syrian Farmers' Federation. In his speech he attacked what he called a conspiracy in Lebanon, and said Syria had a national duty to protect both Lebanese and Palestinians. In the past, Syria had accused Israel several times of fermenting trouble in the Lebanese civil war. President Assam said that Syria would continue to work for a just peace in the Middle East, although Israel was trying to avoid it "by all means"."
    Israel should realise that occupied Arab territory would be liberated, he said, and Arab rights would be recovered. President Assam told the Congress that Syria was also working towards a restoration of Arab solidarity, as a weapon with which they could "face the enemy."
