    Background: President Hafez AI-Asaad of Syria on Wednesday (26 February) came out against separate peace agreements with Israel and stressed the need for concerted political action by the Arabs.

    Addressing a conference of the Syrian Students National Federation he emphasised the need for unity of action in politics as in war on the whole Arab front -- Syrian, Egyptian and Palestinian.

    President Assad was speaking only 10 days before the United States Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger was expected to arrived in the region for his 11th Middle East mission in almost 17 months.

    Syria and Egypt are at odds about the methods of achieving peace in the area. The Egyptians approve of Dr. Kissinger's "step-by-step" approach, Syria rejects the idea and wants the immediate resumption of the Middle East peace conference.
