  • Description

    King Feisal today opened the first Arab Union Parliament and declared that the Union will try to strengthen its ties with other Arab states.

    "Government policy is to exert continuous efforts to secure an equitable settlement of the Palestine problem, which would secure full Arab rights and ease their feelings," the King of Iraq said. "The Government will seek assistance for Algerians in their struggle for independence and will continue cooperation with friendly powers in order to secure security and peace in this area."
    Feisal, in military uniform, had earlier taken his oath of office before the 40-member house. Although King Hussein retains his throne in Jordan, Feisal is chief of state of the Iraq-Jordan Union. "We want the union to be a symbol of liberty and tranquility," he said. "We want the union to be an instrument for construction and progress, and we shall utilize our resources to develop all parts of the union and bring relief to its people. We hope every citizen in both parts of the union will feel the benefits and reap the fruits of the union."
    Speaking of the Federal army, he said: "The unification of the armed forces will make our brave army a respected force. The Government will try to strengthen the land and air forces and supply them with up-to-date weapons."
