  • Description

    A personal representative of Egypt's President Anwar Sadat called on Lebanon's President Suleiman Franjieh on Tuesday (10 April) to convey a message dealing with the pre-dawn Israeli raid on Lebanon.

    Dr. Hassan Sabri el Kholi met with the President in the presence of Premier Saeb Salam, whose government later offered its resignation because of the raid, in which three guerrilla leaders were killed by the commandos.

    Mr. Kholi told journalists after the meeting that his visit had a double aim -- conveying President Sadat's message and offering condolences to Mr. Yasser Arafat, head of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation over the PLO men killed in the raid.

    Prime Minister Salam announced the resignation of his government after an emergency cabinet meeting shortly after the Israeli raid.

    President Franjieh deferred acceptance of the resignation, saying he needed time to consider the offer.

    A transcript of the President's announcement of his government's resignation follows:
