  • Description

    A COMMUNIQUE IS EXPECTED TOMORROW (FRIDAY) ON THE OUTCOME OF THE 13-NATION ARAB SUMMIT MEETING IN CAIRO. THE CONFERENCE, WHICH TODAY WENT INTO ITS FOURTH DAY, WAS CALLED CHIEFLY TO DISCUSS ISRAEL'S PLAN TO DIVERT PART OF THE RIVER JORDAN.

    ONE AGREEMENT HAS ALREADY EMERGED FROM THE CONFERENCE. LAST NIGHT (WEDNESDAY), HEADS OF STATE AGREED TO FORM A UNIFIED MILITARY COMMAND "WITH FINANCIAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE CAPABILITIES."
    THE JORDAN WATERS QUESTION IS THE LAST - AND MOST IMPORTANT - ITEM LEFT ON THE AGENDA. IT WAS REPORTED TONIGHT THAT DELEGATES, "MEETING IN AN AIR OF HARMONY," WERE DISCUSSING A SCHEME TO COUNTER THE ISRAELI PLAN, WHICH IS WELL ADVANCED AND WILL PROVIDE IRRIGATION FRO THE BARREN NEGEV REGION.

    REPORTS SAID THE ARAB PLAN WOULD BE PACKED UP BY THE NEWLY-AGREED MILITARY COMMAND. BUT THIS DID NOT NECESSARILY MEAN MILITARY ACTION ITSELF WOULD BE TAKEN. IF THE DISPUTE COMES TO A TRIAL OF STRENGTH, IT WOULD BE TAKEN TO THE UNITED NATIONS, SAID THE REPORTS.

    FILM BEGINS WITH YESTERDAY'S SESSION. AMONG DELEGATES SHOWN ARE PRESIDENT NASSER, UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC CHAIRMAN AREF, KING SAUD OF SAUDI ARABIA, JORDAN'S KING HUSSEIN, YEMEN'S PRESIDENT SALLAL, ALGERIA'S PRESIDENT BEN BELLA AND KUWAIT'S SHEIKH EL SABBAH.

    FILM ENDS WITH A RECEPTION AND BANQUET GIVEN BY PRESIDENT NASSER LAST NIGHT FOR DELEGATES AND DIPLOMATIC OFFICIALS IT WAS GIVEN IN CAIRO'S ABDINE PALACE. YESTERDAY WAS PRESIDENT NASSER'S 46TH BIRTHDAY AND THE EVE OF THE MONTH OF RAMADAN, DURING WHICH ALL MOSLEMS FAST BETWEEN SUNRISE AND SUNSET.

    TWO ARAB LEADERS ABSENT FROM THE RECEPTION WERE PRESIDENT SALLAL, IN BEN WITH A SLIGHT COLD, AND MOROCCO'S KING HASSAN II, WHO EARLIER THAT DAY UNEXPECTED FLEW HOME.
