  • Description

    Egypt's President Anwar Sadat met the leader of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation, Yaser Arafat, and a group of Arab oil Ministers on Monday (11 March) as a prelude to an oil Ministers' conference in the Libyan capital, Tripoli on Wednesday (13 March).

    The meetings took place at President Sadat's rest house 60 kilometres (37 miles) from the Mediterranean port of Alexandria in the western desert.

    The group of five oil Ministers included Saudl Arabia's Shikh Ahmed Zaki Yamani, and his counterparts from Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Bahrain.

    President Sadat reportedly pressed Egypt's view that the diplomatic efforts of the U.S. Secretary of State, Dr. Henry kissinger, had shown enough American goodwill to warrant an end to the five-month-old oil embargo on the United States.
