  • Description

    At a diplomatic reception in the Abdin Palace in Cairo, President Sadat of the United Arab Republic on Wednesday (15 Dec.) accused the United States of supplying pilots and electronic weapons to Israel, as well as aeroplanes.

    At the reception attended by about a hundred ambassadors and diplomats and their wives, President Sadat praised the Soviet Union for "honestly seeking to achieve peace in the Middle East, and for giving us aid with no strings attached."
    He said he had requested Soviet advisers to train Egyptian soldiers in handling modern weapons.

    President Sadat said the United States on the other hand was standing in the way of implementing Unite Nations resolutions calling for the withdrawal of Israeli troops from occupied Arab lands.
