  • Description

    Egyptian President Anwar Sadat has completely, rejected plans by the United States to submit a new resolution at the United Nations on the Palestinian issue. Sadat told a meeting in Suez City on Wednesday (22 August) that Egypt believed the Camp David accords between Egypt, Israel and the U.S. were sufficient to help the Palestinians.

    SYNOPSIS: President Sadat spent Thursday at prayer, celebrating the end to the holy month of Ramadan. Earlier. the President told a meeting that the Camp Davis accords meant full autonomy for the Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, and an end to israeli military administration in the two regions. The agreements however have been completely rejected by the Palestinians and the majority of Arab countries.

    The argument over self-determination for the Palestinians has been causing serious problems at the United Nations. And last week's attempt to win agreement for the new resolution by President Carter's special envoy to the Middle East, Robert Strauss, ended in failure.

    However, Egypt has said that it will support any new resolution which recognises the legitimate rights of the Palestinians, and does not affect Egypt's peace treaty with the Israeli's.

    President Sadat also attacked his Arab critics for "shouting and crying" over the Egyptian Israeli peace accords.
