  • Description

    THE FOREIGN MINISTERS AND AMBASSADORS OF 12 ARAB COUNTRIES YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) MET FOR THE OPENING OF THE 46TH REGULAR SESSION OF THE ARAB LEAGUE COUNCIL AND CONSIDERED A PROPOSAL REQUESTING JORDAN TO CHANGE ITS PRESENT CAPITAL, AMMAN, TO JERUSALEM.

    THE REQUEST WAS IN A REPORT TO THE COUNCIL BY THE CHAIRMAN OF THE PALESTINE LIBERATION ORGANISATION (PLO), MR. AHMED SHUKAIRY. HE EXPLAINED HIS PROPOSAL WAS PROMPTED BY ISRAEL'S "ATTEMPT TO MOVE ITS CAPITAL" TO JERUSALEM'S ISRAELI SECTOR.

    MR. SHUKAIRY ALSO URGED JORDAN TO ACCEPT SYRIAN, IRAQ AND EGYPTIAN FORCES ALONG ITS BORDER WITH ISRAEL UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE UNIFIED ARAB COMMAND.

    HIS REPORT WENT ON TO DEAL WITH THE ATTITUDE OF PRESIDENT HABIB BOURGUIBA OF TUNISIA TOWARDS THE PALESTINE CASE AND URGED THE COMMITTEE TO "CONDEMN AND EXPEL" PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA OF TUNISIA FROM THE LEAGUE.

    TUNISIA IS BOYCOTTING THE ARAB LEAGUE BECAUSE OF WHAT PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA CALLED A HOSTILE CAMPAIGN AGAINST HIS COUNTRY BY THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC.

    THE SEVEN COUNTRIES REPRESENTED BY THEIR FOREIGN MINISTERS ARE THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, IRAQ, SYRIA, YEMEN, LEBANON, KUWAIT AND SUDAN.

    THE REMAINING FIVE -- SAUDI ARABIA, JORDAN, ALGERIA, LIBYA AND MOROCCO -- ARE REPRESENTED BY THEIR AMBASSADORS IN CAIRO.
