    Background: Prime Minister Kassem, recovered from the attempt on his life and now facing his pledge to permit the resumption of political party life next month in his 17-month old Republic, rejoined top Army officers and colleagues who helped in the coup d'etat at a reunion luncheon in Baghdad Dec 9.

    This was the first opportunity that Army leaders and civilian leaders around one table were able to meet the Commander-in-Chief of Iraq's Armed Forces since he left hospital this month.

    Brigadier Ali Ghaleb Aziz, Fifth Division Commander, welcomed Prime Minister Kassem to the reunion as he arrived with an armoured car escort. Another top Army colleague was Lieut-General Muhammad Najib Al-Rubey'i. Religious leaders also attended.
