  • Description

    THE FOREIGN MINISTER OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, MR. MAHMOUD RIAD, ACCUSED ISRAEL OF BLOCKING ATTEMPTS BY THE BIG POWERS AT THE UNITED NATIONS TO IMPROVE THE MIDDLE EAST SITUATION. HE WAS SPEAKING YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) AT ATHENS AIRPORT DURING A STOPOVER ON HIS FLIGHT FROM CAIRO TO BELGRADE, WHERE HE IS MAKING A TWO-DAY VISIT FOR TALKS WITH PRESIDENT TITO.

    MR. RIAD ACCUSED ISRAELI FOREIGN MINISTER, EBBA EBAN, OF "TALKING THE LANGUAGE OF HAWKS" AND OF TRYING TO IMPOSE A SOLUTION TO THE MIDDLE EAST PROBLEM ON THE ARAB STATES. HE ADDED THAT ISRAEL WAS CLEARLY INTENT ON A POLICY OF EXPANSION AND OCCUPATION OF ARAB COUNTRIES.

    MR. RIAD SAID U.A.R. SUPPORTED SOVIET PEACE PROPOSALS, AND WOULD BACK ANY PROPOSALS WHICH MIGHT LEAD TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION CONDEMNING ISRAEL.

    IN HIS TALKS WITH JUGOSLAV'S PRESIDENT TITO, MR. RIAD IS EXPECTED TO DISCUSS THE MIDDLE EAST, ALTHOUGH THEIR TALKS WILL RANGE OVER THE WHOLE SPECTRUM OF WORLD PROBLEMS.
