  • Description

    LEADERS OF THE ARAB WORLD, MEETING AT THE FIFTH SUMMIT CONFERENCE IN RABAT, MOROCCO, TODAY (SATURDAY) DISPOSED OF THEIR FIRST PROBLEM -- THE SELECTION OF A CHAIRMAN -- WHEN THEY NAMED PRESIDENT JAAFAR AL-NUMEIRI, OF SUDAN, TO PRESIDE OVER THE OPENING SESSION TOMORROW. A DISPUTE OVER CHAIRMANSHIP HAD EARLIER DELAYED THE OPENING OF THE CONFERENCE FROM TONIGHT TO TOMORROW MORNING. LEADERS OF THE 14 ARAB COUNTRIES HAVE BEEN ARRIVING IN RABAT OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS TO ATTEND THE SUMMIT.

    THE 14 HEADS OF STATE, REPRESENTING 100-MILLION ARABS, WILL BE MEETING TO DECIDE HOW TO LIBERATE OCCUPIED ARAB TERRITORIES FROM ISRAELI CONTROL, AND TO DISCUSS OTHER MIDDLE EAST PROBLEMS.

    AMONG THOSE ARRIVING YESTERDAY FOR THE CONFERENCE WERE THE SYRIAN MINISTER OF INTERIOR, MOHAMMED RABAH AL-TAWIL, GENERAL JAAFAR MOHAMED EL NUMEIRI, CHAIRMAN OF THE REVOLUTIONARY COMMAND COUNCIL IN SUDAN, COLONEL MUAMMAR GADDAF, CHAIRMAN OF THE LIBYAN REVOLUTIONARY COMMAND COUNCIL, AND PRESIDENT CHARLES HELOU, OF LEBANON.

    THE POSTPONEMENT OF THE OPENING SESSION CAME AFTER DELEGATES HAD FAILED TO AGREE ON WHETHER THE HOST, KING HASSAN, OF MOROCCO, OR THE SUDANESE PRESIDENT SHOULD PRESIDE OVER THE SUMMIT.

    THE DELAY IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE MORE TIME FOR BILATERAL AND MULTILATERAL CONSULTATIONS BETWEEN THE DELEGATIONS.
