  • Description

    PRESIDENT NASSER OF EGYPT, ON HIS WAY HOME FROM TALKS WITH LIBYAN AND SUDANESE LEADERS IN TRIPOLI, RAN INTO SO RAPTUROUS A RECEPTION IN THE COUNTRY'S TWIN CAPITAL OF BENGHAZI THAT HE HAD TO CANCEL A SPEECH HE WAS DUE TO MAKE.

    BECAUSE OF THE DENSE CROWD WAITING TO GREET HIM THE EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT TOOK FOUR HOURS TO GET FROM THE AIRPORT INTO THE CITY CENTRE. BY THAT TIME IT WAS TOO LATE TO HOLD THE RALLY AT WHICH HE WAS SCHEDULED TO SPEAK.

    THE TRIUMPHAL GREETING FOR PRESIDENT NASSER FOLLOWS EFFORTS WHICH HE HAS MADE WITH THE LIBYAN AND SUDANESE LEADERS TO SET UP A UNITED FRONT AGAINST ISRAEL. THE TALKS CAME AS AN AFTERMATH TO THE BREAKDOWN OF THE ARAB SUMMIT CONFERENCE IN RABAT, MOROCCO LAST WEEK.

    ON JANUARY 1 PRESIDENT NASSER IS DUE IN KHARTOUM IN THE SUDAN TO CONTINUE THE TALKS ON MEASURES AGAINST ISRAEL.
