  • Description

    The Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) leaders plan to send delegations around the world to plead the Palestinian cause, and to criticise the Egyptian-Israeli peace agreement.

    SYNOPSIS: Damascus, the capital of Syria, was the venue on Monday (2 April) for a meeting between PLO and Syrian leaders.

    PLO head Yasser Arafat and leading figures from Palestinian groups met with Syrian President Hafez al-Assad to map out ways of foiling the agreement. One measure will be sending Palestinian delegations to many countries to build a united front against it. Recently, in Baghdad, most of the Arab world met to close ranks gainst Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. Stringent economic and political sanctions to cripple Egypt's survival, were proposed. The day before this Damascus meeting, an Egyptian government spokesman said in Cairo the Baghdad conference and Arab ministers; proposals were illegal, and violated the Arab League charter. Egypt, he said, would allow nothing to prevent its reaching a comprehensive and just settlement in the Middle East, including all Arab rights.
