  • Description

    BRITAIN AND SOUTH ARABIA'S NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT (NLF), WHOSE TROOPS RECENTLY FACE EACH OTHER ACROSS GUNSIGHTS, MET AT THE CONFERENCE TABLE TODAY (TUESDAY) FOR THE FIRST TIME--AND THE ATMOSPHERE WAS SAID TO BE "ENCOURAGING".

    BRITAIN AND THE NLF STARTED THEIR TALKS AT THE GENEVA HEADQUARTERS OF THE WORLD ALLIANCE OF YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION, WITH THE AIM OF GRANTING INDEPENDENCE TO SOUTH ARABIA WITHIN 10 DAYS.

    AFTER MEETING FOR TWO HOURS THE DELEGATIONS HEADED BY LORD SHACKLETON FOR BRITAIN AND MR. QAHTAN MOHAMMED ASHAABI FOR THE NLF DECIDED TO CONTINUE THE TALKS TOMORROW.

    A BRIEF COMMUNIQUE SAID "THE FIRST MEETING WAS CONDUCTED IN AN ENCOURAGING ATMOSPHERE".

    IT IS THOUGHT THAT THIS FORESHADOWED A SATISFACTORY CONCLUSION TO THE TALKS, WHICH MAINLY CENTRE ON BRITAIN'S PLEDGE OF A 60 MILLION STERLING LOAN TO SOUTH ARABIA OVER THREE YEARS AFTER INDEPENDENCE.

    BRITISH SOURCES HAVE INDICATED THAT NOT ALL OF THE MONEY MIGHT BE READILY AVAILABLE TO AN INDEPENDENT SOUTH ARABIA. THE NLF DELEGATION MADE IT CLEAR AFTER ARRIVING IN GENEVA YESTERDAY (MONDAY) THAT IT WILL ASK FOR MORE.
