  • Description

    In a television and radio address to the nation on Thursday evening (10 June), Egypt's President Anwar Sadat ruled out any political settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict unless Israel withdraws completely from territories occupied during the 1967 war.

    The President told his people, watching and listening in cafes and shops throughout the country, that another condition for peace was the preservation of the Palestinian people's rights to determine their future. "There will be no life for us in the true sense of the word until these two conditions are fulfilled," he added.

    The People also heard President Sadat speak on reforming the Arab Socialist Union when he said there would be no room in a reconstructed Union for opportunists, reactionaries and saboteurs.

    He was speaking on the fourth anniversary of the late President Nasser's recall to power by the masses after his offer to resign in the wake of the 1967 defeat.
