An Arab summit meeting has been proposed to deal with the feud between the Palestine Liberation Organisation and the Libyan Jamahiriyah. The worsening relations between the PLO and Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi were discussed at a meeting of the Palestine Central Council in Syria.
SYNOPSIS: The council met in Damascus on Thursday (13 December) under the leadership of PLO chief Yasser Arafat and the chairmanship of Khaled Fahoum.
Meetings are held regularly, but the most pressing business for the Palestinians' Parliament in exile was the Libyan problem.
The feud began when Colonel Gaddafi expelled the PLO representative in the Libyan Jamahiriyah.
In response, the Palestine news agency WAFA described Gaddafi as the 'mad colonel', and accused him of trying to dominate the Palestine resistance movement. In November Colonel Gaddafi called on the PLO to take more militant action in attacking the Suez Canal and Egyptian oil fields
Before the Central Council meeting began, chairman Fahoud listed some of the subjects that would be discussed.
