Background: El-Sayed Rashid Karami, Lebanese Prime Minister, was filmed at Cairo Airport June 6 on arrival from Beirut. He was greeted by U.A.R. Vice President Abdul Latif el Dogdadi on behalf of President Nasser. June 7 Premier Karami and UAR Economic Minister Kaissuni signed an economic agreement between the two countries.
In Cairo for a four-day visit, Premier Karami will stay at the Al-Tahra Palace. His visit to Cairo, several times announced had been several times postponed.
The agreement settles long standing economic differences with Syria - Egypt's partner in the U.A.R. Premier Karami had once before flown to Cairo with the same agreement in mind.. but failed. Attempts by UAR Economics Minister Kaissouni on his visit to Beirut recently, also failed to solve the same problem.
