  • Description

    Britain was today (Saturday) accused of conspiring to create civil was in South Arabia after a meeting in Cairo between the leaders of the Front for the Liberation of South Yemen (FLOSY) and the United Nations mission on Aden.

    The accusation came from Mr. Abdel Qawee Mackawee, Secretary-General of FLOSY, which is Egyptian-backed, in a statement issued after the first meeting between the two groups at the Arab League headquarters.

    Mr. Mackawee said after the three-hour session that he had put before the U.N. committee recent developments in South Arabia and the "latest conspiracies being hatched by Britain to create civil war in the area".

    FLOSY is now struggling for power in South Arabia with the National Liberation Front (NLF).

    Mr. Mackawee said his delegation had told the U.N. mission that FLOSY had the right to form a provisional central Nationalist government and that FLOSY was prepared to cooperate with other Nationalist elements and allow them to take part in a provisional government.

    His statement said the extent of FLOSY's popularity and its representation of the people had been proved by the success of the general strike it called in South Arabia on Thursday (September 7).
