  • Description

    The National Congress, Egypt's only political body, said in Cairo on Friday (18 February) that the Liberation battle against Israel was "the natural and inevitable means" of regaining the occupied Arab territories.

    The Congress, in passing resolutions after a three-day emergency meeting called by President Anwar Sadat, said the battle was the way to end the state of "no war -- no peace" into which Israel and the United States were trying to plunge Egypt.

    Although the peaceful solution had reached a deadlock and the battle had become the only solution, political efforts should not be ended, it added. President Sadat, in his closing address to the Congress, said the battle with Israel would begin when the country was fully mobilised.
