Background: Mexican President, Luis Echeverria arrived in Egypt on Monday (4 August) for talks with President Sadat and Middle East peace efforts are expected to top the agenda.
The Mexican President will be in Egypt for four days.
Senor Echeverria will also be discussing bilateral economic relations with Mr. Sadat. He is anxious to win the approval of Arab oil producers for a plan to use surplus funds for development.
The Mexican leader will visit Israel after his Egyptian stay. He also wants to meet Palestinian leaders during his visit to Arab countries.
Egypt is the Presidents's ninth stop over a six week tour of thirteen Asian, Latin American and African countries.
Diplomatic observers say that a reason for the trip could be Senor Echeverria's ambition to promote himself as candidate for the Secretary-Generalship of the United Nations, when Mr. Kurt Waldheim's term expires in December next year.
