  • Description

    In Cairo, a war committee under President Anwar Sadat has reviewed war preparations and civil defence measures to be taken in case of a possible Israeli surprise attack.

    After the five-hour meeting on 7 May, Dr. Ashraf Ghorbal, the Presidential Press adviser, said the Higher War Committee had noted recent Israeli military and political provocations and threats which could mean preparations for a new aggression on the Arab Countries.

    The meeting comes shortly after a May Day speech by President Sadat (Visnews Production Number 4141/73) in which he said that Egypt would never surrender to Israel or America nor would it cede one inch of territory or bargain about the rights of the Palestinians.

    He added that the one major difference between Egypt and the Soviet Union was that they still believed in a peaceful Middle East settlement; Egypt's attitude was that what had been taken by force should be regained by force.
