  • Description

    Libya's leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi began private talks with Egypt's President Anwar Sadat in Cairo on saturday (29 May). Colonel Gaddafi's visit came less than 24-hours after a four-day visit to cairo by soviet President Nikolai Podgorny.

    Although the purpose of the talks between the young libyan leader and President Sadat was not disclosed, it is likely that they discussed the recent power struggle in Egypt, as well as president Podgorny's visit. Both subjects could have a bearing on a proposed federation of Arab Republics, linking Egypt, Libya, and syria.

    This is the first meeting between the two leaders since the Egyptian President's disclosure, on 14 May, of an abortive coup against him.
