  • Description

    EGYPT'S PRESIDENT GAMAL NASSER HAS BEEN PLAYING HOST TO THE HEADS OF STATE OF JORDAN, SYRIA, IRAQ AND SUDAN, AT A SUMMIT CONFERENCE WHICH ENDED YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) IN CAIRO, AFTER THREE DAYS OF DISCUSSIONS AND PLANNING THE COMMUNIQUE WHICH THEY ISSUED ON THEIR POSITION IN THE MIDDLE EAST CONFLICT WITH ISRAEL AND THEIR CONDEMNATION OF UNITED STATES SUPPORT OF THE ISRAELIS.

    BEFORE THE FINAL MEETING--THE LEADERS POSED FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS. APART FROM PRESIDENT NASSER, THE OTHER PRESENT WERE JORDAN'S KING HUSSEIN; SYRIA'S PRESIDENT NOUREDDIN AL-ATASSI AND DEFENCE MINISTER MAJOR-GENERAL HAFEZ ASSAD; IRAQ'S PRESIDENT SALEH MAHDI AMMASH; SUDAN'S PRESIDENT OF THE REVOLUTIONARY COUNCIL MAJOR-GENERAL JAAFAR MOHAMMED EL-NIMEIRY; AND OTHER MILITARY AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS FROM EACH COUNTRY.

    IN THE OFFICIAL COMMUNIQUE ISSUED BY THE FRONT LINE ARAB LEADERS, THEY REAFFIRMED THEIR DETERMINATION TO "LIBERATE ARAB TERRITORY" FROM ISRAELI OCCUPATION AND DECLARED THEIR "ABSOLUTE FAITH IN THE INEVITABILITY OF VICTORY". THEN, TURNING TO THE UNITED STATES' SUPPORT OF ISRAEL, THE COMMUNIQUE CONTINUED: "OUR MEETING IS BEING HELD AT A TIME WHEN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS ADOPTING A NEW HOSTILE ATTITUDE AGAINST THE ARAB NATION AND UNVEILING THEIR REAL LINKS WITH ZIONISM AND WITH THE ISRAELI EXPANSIONIST PLAN.....THE ARAB NATION REFUSES TO SEE ITS RESOURCES AND WEALTH BEING EXPLOITED AND CONVERTED INTO ASSISTANCE AND WEAPONS FOR ISRAEL. THE CONTINUATION OF SUCH EXPLOITATION SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS AN ACT OF IMPERIALISM WHICH MUST BE LIQUIDATED BY THE ARAB COUNTRIES. BY BEHAVING AS IT DOES, AND BY ITS CONTINUOUS SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL, THE UNITED STATES EXPOSES TO DANGER PEACE AND SECURITY IN THE MIDDLE EAST AS WELL AS WORLD PEACE--AND THEREFORE BEARS A SERIOUS RESPONSIBILITY BEFORE THE WORLD COMMUNITY AND HUMANITY AS A WHOLE."
