    Background: AT THE RESUMED 38TH SESSION OF THE ARAB LEAGUE COUNCIL IN CAIRO YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) SYRIA FORMALLY WITHDREW HER CHARGE THAT THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC WAS INTERFERING IN HER INTERNAL AFFAIRS.

    THE SESSION ENDED IN DISORDER LAST SEPTEMBER AT SHTURA, LEBANON, WHEN SYRIA MADE HER COMPLAINT. THE UAR DELEGATION WALKED OUT AND THREATENED TO ABANDON THE LEAGUE ALTOGETHER. WITH THE WITHDRAWAL OF SYRIA'S COMPLAINT, THE UAR WAS EXPECTED TO RESUME HER FULL ROLE AS A LEAGUE MEMBER.

    A LEAGUE SPOKESMAN SAID LATER THAT THE COUNCIL HAD ALSO DENOUNCED FRENCH NUCLEAR TESTS IN THE SAHARA AND "ISRAELI TERRORIST ACTIVITIES AGAINST GERMAN SCIENTISTS SAID TO BE WORKING FOR EGYPT."
    THE NEWLY APPOINTED IRAQI AMBASSADOR TO CAIRO, MR. ABDEL RAYMAN BAZZAS, TOLD THE COUNCIL THAT IRAQ WOULD RESUME FULL PARTICIPATION IN THE LEAGUE, WHICH SHE HAS BOYCOTTED SINCE HER DISPUTE WITH KUWAIT.

    (REPORTS FROM CAIRO YESTERDAY SAID PRESIDENT NASSER HAD DRAWN UP THE BROAD OUTLINES OF A PLAN FOR FEDERAL UNION BETWEEN EGYPT, SYRIA AND IRAQ FOR DISCUSSION AT RESUMED TRIPARTITE TALKS IN THE CITY NEXT WEEK. IT WAS SAID THAT A NEW, UNIFIED ARAB STATE WAS EXPECTED TO BE ESTABLISHED WITHIN THREE MONTHS, WITH A FEDERAL CONSTITUTION AND A CENTRAL CABINET INCLUDING MINISTRIES OF WAR, EDUCATION, ECONOMY AND FOREIGN AFFAIRS.)
