  • Description

    Arab oil is now a weapon against "imperialists" in the "battle for Palestine" President Ahmed Hassan Bakr or Iraq told delegates at a conference in Baghdad on Saturday (11 November).

    He said Iraqi specialists had succeeded in running the installations of the Western-owned Iraq Petroleum Company since it was nationalised on June 1 and they had marketed the oil despite obstacles.

    The President was opening a seminar on "Oil as a weapon against Imperialism and the Israeli aggression and as a means of an independent economic development."
    The seminar was organised by the National Council for Peace and Solidarity in Iraq, in co-operation with the World Peace Council and the Afro-Asian Solidarity Organisations. Among those attending were delegations from the Palestine Liberation Organisation, the French Communist Party and Trade Union Federation, the Italian Communist Party, the League of Jurists and Democrats, the Hungarian Peace Council, the Rumanian National Council for the Defence of Peace, and East Germany's Peace Council. There were also representatives from all Arab countries, the Soviet Union, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Britain, France, Sweden, India, Finland, Argentina, Yugoslavia, Italy, Belgium, Mongolia and several other nations.
