  • Description

    Following President Anwar Sadat's marathon four-hour speech at Cairo University yesterday (Monday), members of the National Congress and the Arab Socialist Union (ASU) broke up into four main groups to discuss the implications of the speech.

    Addressing some 3,000 political leaders, armed forces chief, parliamentarians and ASU members, President Sadat attacked the United States for failing to keep Promises to pressure Israel into a withdrawal from occupied Arab territories; he also blamed the Russians or their reluctance to supply certain arms to match those supplied by the USA to Israel, and criticised the Soviet Union for not settling differences between their two nations.

    In view of his also calling for an emergency session of Parliament to prepare the necessary legislation to guarantee national unity, the four working groups were immediately set-up to draw up the plans for this session. Our film shows members of the groups gathering for their first meetings. President Sadat's speech is being serviced separately as PROD. NO. 9029/72: EGYPT: PRESIDENT SADAT CRITICISES BOTH USA AND RUSSIA DURING MARATHON FOUR-HOUR SPEECH TO COUNTRY'S CIVILIAN AND MILITARY LEADERS. (SOUND - ARABIC & NATURAL)
