  • Description

    President Sadat of Egypt conferred with his cabinet and the Central Committee of the Arab Socialist Union in two separate meetings in Cairo on Sunday (August 29). He discussed with them next Wednesday's (September 1) referendum on the constitution of the Federation of Arab Republics between Egypt, Syria and Libya. He told them that the Federation was the right step in the direction of a unified Arab strategy, and both bodies endorsed the constitution--drawn up in Damascus last week. At the same time, President Sadat told the Central Committee that "huge quantities" of United States arms, including M-60 tanks, had arrived in Jordan for use against Syria.

    One of the problems of the whole Middle East situation discussed at both President Sadat's meetings was relations between Jordan and the Arab world.
