The Foreign Secretary of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriyah, Ali Abdel Salam Triki, paid a visit to the Mauritanian President, Moktar Ould Daddah on Wednesday (29 June). M. Triki was later guest of honour at a presidential dinner.
M. Triki and his Jamahiriyah delegates were greeted at Nouakchott airport by the Mauritanian President himself. M. Triki had come to give President Ould Daddah a message from Libyan President El Kadhafi, inviting him to an Arab summit meeting in Tripoli.
M. Triki's message said the summit was particularly necessary in view of the increasing danger of zionism. He said many of the countries he had visited had accepted the Libyan-sponsored summit. But recently, Moroccan Premier Ahmed Osnab said his country had rejected a proposal by the Libyan Jamahiriyah to convene the summit. Morocco is the second Arab State to turn down the proposal. Egypt has already announced its rejection, saying there was nothing new or urgent that necessitated a summit meeting. Ironically, a few days after the Libyan Jamahiriyah visit, Nouakchott was shelled and machine-gunned for 45 minutes by guerrillas of the Polisario Front for an Independent Sahara.
