  • Description

    FORMAL TALKS ON SOME FORM OF FEDERAL UNION OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, SYRIA, AND IRAQ, RESUMED IN CAIRO YESTERDAY, (SUNDAY) AFTER FURTHER SEPARATE TALKS BETWEEN SYRIA'S DELEGATION AND PRESIDENT NASSER.

    IN A STATEMENT ISSUED AFTER THE MEETING, WING COMMANDER ALY SABRI, CHAIRMAN OF THE U.A.R. EXECUTIVE COUNCIL, SAID THE PIVOT OF THE TALKS WAS THE BASIS OF FEDERAL UNION WHICH WILL GROUP THE THREE COUNTRIES. PROGRESS, HE SAID, HAD BEEN MADE ON THESE LINES.

    UNOFFICIAL SOURCES SAID LAST NIGHT'S DISCUSSION WAS DEVOTED TO THE ISSUE OF WHETHER POLITICAL PARTIES WOULD BE ALLOWED TO EXIST IN A FUTURE FEDERATION. (POLITICAL PARTIES ARE BANNED IN THE U.A.R.)
    IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT THE EGYPTIAN VIEW IS THAT THIS MUST BE SETTLED BEFORE ANY SPECIFIC STUDY CAN BE MADE OF UNION DRAFTS.

    YESTERDAY'S TALKS FOLLOWED TWO DAYS OF PRELIMINARY DISCUSSIONS DURING WHICH THE U.A.R. TEAM AND PRESIDENT NASSER HAD SEPARATE MEETINGS WITH BOTH THE SYRIANS, AND THE IRAQIS. IT IS NOT NOW HOW LONG THE PRESENT TALKS, THE SECOND OF THE SERIES, WILL LAST.
