Background: The Libyan Prime Minister, Major Abdel-Salam Jalloud, conferred with President Anwar Sadat at El Kanater, 15 miles (24 kms) from Cairo, on Thursday (13th December). Relations between Egypt and Libya have been strained since the outbreak of the Arab-Israeli War in October. The Libyan leader, Colonel Muammar Gadaffi, complained that Egypt had not consulted its neighbours about the war.
Sojor Jalloud arrived unexpectedly in Cairo on Wednesday (12 December)and had talks with the Egyptian deputy premier, Dr. Abdel Kader Hatem.
No details of the talks between Major Jalloud and President Sadat were released but it is believed they discussed means of restoring good relation between the two countries.
Later on Thursday President Sadat had talks with the United States Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger. They finalised arrangements for the arab-Israeli peace talks, due to start in Geneva on December the 18th.
