    Background: The Amir of Kuwait has arrived in Lebanon at the start of a summer vacation.

    Sheikh Sabah As-Salim As-Sabah is expected to stay at his holiday home in Aley, about ten miles (16 kilometers) from Beirut. He flew into Beirut on Thursday (5 July).

    The Kuwait Head of State was greeted at Beirut by a guard of honour and a fly pass by Lebanese Airforce jets.

    SYNOPSIS: The visitor was afforded a VIP welcome when he arrived at Beirut Airport. Lebanon's President Franjieh greeted him as he left his aircraft, and as spectators watched from the airport's terminal building Lebanese Air Force jets flew overhead in salute. The Amir's visit co-incided with a meeting of Arab foreign and defence ministers in Cairo. But, according to reports, he is in Lebanon merely to spend part of the summer at his holiday home.

    Nevertheless, full protocol was observed during the airport arrival. In addition to a guard of honour, a military band played the national anthems of both countries. The vacation will probably provide the Sheikh with an opportunity to catch up on his favourite leisure pastimes - literature and poetry.
