  • Description

    REPRESENTATIVES OF ARAB HEADS OF STATE AGREED UNANIMOUSLY TO CO-OPERATE WITH THE PERSIAN GULF EMIRATES AT THEIR TWO-DAY MEETING IN CAIRO WHICH ENDED LAST NIGHT (THURSDAY).

    DELEGATES FROM ALL ARAB STATES, EXCEPT TUNISIA, WERE AT THE MEETING IN CAIRO'S ARAB LEAGUE BUILDING. THE STATEMENT ISSUED ON TUESDAY NIGHT REAFFIRMED THE COMMITMENT OF IRAQ, KUWAIT, SAUDI ARABIA AND THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ARAB LEAGUE'S DEVELOPMENT FUND FOR DEVELOPING THE GULF EMIRATES. THE STATEMENT CALLED ON ALL ARAB STATES TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE FUND, AND TO REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY DEVELOPMENT FUND IMPOSED ON THE AREA.

    THE MEETING ALSO AGREED TO ASK ARAB FOREIGN MINISTERS TO EXPLAIN TO BRITISH AMBASSADORS IN THEIR COUNTRIES "THE DANGERS OF BRITISH POLICY IN THE GULF AREA".

    THE REPRESENTATIVES ALSO DECIDED TO STUDY THE POSSIBILITY OF RAISING THE GULF ISSUE AT THE UNITED NATIONS COMMITTEE ON COLONIALISM, SENDING THEIR REPORT TO THE NEXT ARAB HEADS OF STATE MEETING IN CASABLANCA IN SEPTEMBER.

    THE FORMER RULER OF THE TRUCIAL STATE OF SHARJAH, SHEIKH SAQR BEN SULTAN QUASSIMI, REPORTED TO THE MEETING ON THE GULF SITUATION AND BLAMED BRITAIN FOR PLOTTING HIS DOWNFALL BECAUSE HE WANTED TO CO-OPERATE WITH THE ARAB LEAGUE.
