  • Description

    THE EGYPTIAN VICE-PRESIDENT DOCTOR ZAKARIA MOHIEDDIN HAS BEEN IN DAMASCUS FOR TALKS WITH SYRIAN OFFICIALS ON THE CURRENT STATE OF TENSION BETWEEN ISRAEL AND SURROUNDING ARAB STATES.

    NO DETAILS OF THE REASONS FOR THE VISIT WERE ANNOUNCED. HOWEVER, THE VISIT FOLLOWED SHORTLY AFTER THE RATIFICATION OF THE EGYPT-JORDAN DEFENCE PACT, WHICH, ALTHOUGH ACCLAIMED BY MANY ARAB STATES, HAS NOT BEEN ACCLAIMED BY SYRIA.

    THE PACT WAS IGNORED BY STATE-RUN NEWS PAPERS AND RADIO STATIONS IN SYRIA, AND EVEN AFTER THE DEPARTURE OF DOCTOR MOHIEDDIN DAMASCUS RADIO STATIONS CONTINUED TO ATTACK JORDAN AND SAUDI ARABIA.

    THE SYRIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, DOCTOR IBRAHIM MAKHOS, WAS NOT AT THE MEETINGS WITH DOCTOR MOHIEDDIN. DOCTOR MAKHOS LEFT ON TUESDAY FOR PARIS AND ALGERIA, A FEW HOURS BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF THE EGYPTIAN VICE-PRESIDENT IN DAMASCUS.
