  • Description

    In Damascus today President Nasser of Egypt addressed a wildly enthusiastic gathering of representatives of the Lebanese Opposition who had come specially to Syria to proclaim their support for the United Arab Republic.

    Nasser has been having a busy time since his arrival - unexpectedly - in Damascus a few days ago.

    While he has been in Syria the Kingdom of Yemen has announced its intention of joining the Arab Republic of Egypt and Syria.

    This was announced on March 2nd, by Nasser himself and Crown Prince Mohammed al Badr of Yemen, after the two had conferred together.

    The Crown Prince said later: "The federation agreement will be signed as soon as the Cabinet of the United Arab Republic is formed." He expected the date and place of signing to be settled sometime today, March 2nd.

    The Crown Prince expressed the hope that his country's federation with the Egyptian-Syrian Republic would "liberate southern Arabia."
