    Background: INTRODUCTION
    Representatives of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Egypt attended a meeting chaired by the Lebanese President Elias Sarkis in Baabda, Lebanon on Thursday (20 January). They all belong to a committee designed to supervise the re-establishment on peace in Lebanon.

    SYNOPSIS: Among the topics discussed was the storming of any caches of heavy arms still hidden in Beirut, the repatriation of the homeless and the implementation of a Palestinian-Lebanese agreement established in Cairo in 1969.

    The majority of Arab States have already agreed to a specific formula drawn up by the government providing for a collective Arab effort to rebuild Lebanon quickly. Several have also agreed to provide urgent aid to deal with social problems.
