  • Description

    In the United States King Khalid of Saudi Arabia is recovering in a Cleveland clinic after a recent heart operation. On Wednesday (11 October)Secretary of State Cyrus Vance paid him a shot visit.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Vance saw the king on the eve of the peace talks between Israel and Egypt in Washington. Saudi Arabia has long been seen as a moderate influence in the Arab world and Mr. Vance visited the country last month for talks on the Camp David summit with King Khalid and his younger brother, Crown Prince Fahd. However a State Department spokesman described the forty minute visit as a courtesy call and said the statesmen did not discuss foreign police matters.

    King Khalid does not enjoy good health. He recently spent two years in London recuperating after a hip operation, and in 1972 he underwent heart surgery at the same Cleveland Clinic. Doctors say his present condition is satisfactory, following a double coronary by-pass operation. The sixty-five-year-old monarch is expected to recuperate in the United States until the end of November.
