    Background: Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak on June 28 discussed the crisis in Lebanon with members of his national security council at Cairo's Arouba Palace. The meeting was attended by Deputy Foreign Minister Boutros Ghali, Defence Minister Abdel Halim Abu-Ghazala and military and political chiefs. The council decided to send Boutros Ghali to France for talks with French leaders on the problem.

This was vetoed by the United States, leading to strong protests from Egypt. The crisis has brought Egypt slightly closer to the rest of the Arab world. Egyptian officials said Egypt was in constant touch with the Palestinians and had sent five ships to help evacuate Palestinians from Beirut. Egypt has also suggested that the Palestinians could establish a government in exile in Cairo. Egypt has also suggested that the Palestinians could establish a government in exile in Cairo.
