  • Description

    President Nimeiri of the Sudan arrived in Algiers on Wednesday (10 May) for talks with government leaders aimed at a reconciliation of Arab states.

    SYNOPSIS: President Nimeiri was greeted at the airport in Algiers by President Boumedienne. Sudan is the current chairman-state of the Arab League Council. At its last meeting, President Nimeiri was asked to try to reconcile Arab differences over President Sadat's Middle East peace initiative and arrange a summit meeting of Arab states.

    President Nimeiri has been engaged in a hectic round of shuttle diplomacy of recent weeks. He visited Egypt twice in ten days, and is trying to find patch of common agreement between President Sadat and states like Algeria which are strongly opposed to the peace initiative. And while President Nimieri was trying to negotiate with the Algerians, Syria again called on President Sadat to abandon his peace moves and admit they were a failure.
