  • Description

    President Anwar Sadat of Egypt on Thursday (July 26) denounced the United States veto of a United Nations Security Council draft resolution deploring the Israeli occupation of Arab territories.

    He told an audience of professors and students at Alexandria University that by its action the United States had been unmasked as an all-out supporter of Israel in the Middle East conflict.

    The President's address to mark the 21st anniversary of the Egyptian revolution was broadcast live on television and radio.

    President Sadat said that behind Israel stood the United States with all its forces and potentialities. But following the U.S. veto of a non-aligned nations draft resolution, Egypt was not nervous.

    "From here in Alexandria University I am presenting that veto and all the significance behind it to the Soviet Union" said President Sadat to bursts of applause form his audience.

    At an earlier revolution anniversary speech on Monday (July 23) the President emphasised he was keen to retain Soviet friendship and that Cairo still relied on Moscow despite differences.

    It was 21 years ago on Thursday that the late King Farouk, ousted by a military junta, left Egypt to live and die in exile abroad. At the meeting President Sadat was presented with documents signed in blood pledging support.
