  • Description

    Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and the President of Sudan, Jaafir al Nimeiry, met at Borg el Arab, about 50 kilometres (31 miles) from Alexandria, on Sunday (29 June) amid growing Arab concern over the deteriorating situation in Lebanon.

    The two leaders assessed first-hand reports from the Lebanese capital, Beirut, and discussed means of averting further fighting in the city.

    The current Middle East situation in general was also under review during the talks as well as bilateral relations within the framework of the Egyptian-Sudanese political and economic co-ordination agreement. The agreement, signed two years ago, was formulated as a step towards future unity between the two countries.

    Another reason for President Nimeiry's trip was to visit his brother who is being treated at a military hospital in Cairo.
