  • Description

    THE BAHREIN RULER, SHEIKH ISA BIN SULMAN AL KHALIFA, FLEW INTO KUWAIT YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) FOR A THREE-DAY STATE VISIT AS GUEST OF THE AMIR, SHEIKH SABAH AL SALIM AL SABAH.

    OBSERVERS IN BAHREIN REGARDED THE VISIT AS A FURTHER POSITIVE STEP TOWARDS AN ORDERLY ARRANGEMENT OF PERSIAN GULF AFFAIRS FOLLOWING THE ANNOUNCED WITHDRAWAL OF BRITISH FORCES BY 1971.

    IT IS CONSIDERED POSSIBLE THAT THE CURRENT SERIES OF CONSULTATIONS BETWEEN GULF RULERS MAY ULTIMATELY LEAD TO SOME FORM OF COLLECTIVE SECURITY PACT FOR THEIR STATES, AND THAT IF THIS OPPOSED OUTSIDE INTERVENTION FROM BOTH EAST AND WEST IT MIGHT BE POSSIBLE TO PERSUADE REPUBLICAN IRAQ TO JOIN.

    IN THE FACE OF THE COMMON EMERGENCY, SOME OF THE BORDER AND LAND DISPUTES BETWEEN THE STATES HAVE BEEN SHELVED, BUT OBSERVERS BELIEVE IT WILL BE NEARLY A YEAR BEFORE A CLEAR PATTERN EMERGES ON WHICH WAY THE GULF IS HEADING.
