  • Description

    INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS FORMED A LARGE PART OF A MAJOR POLICY SPEECH BY PRESIDENT NASSER OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC YESTERDAY (THURSDAY). THE SPEECH CAME AT THE OPENING OF A NEW SESSION OF THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY.

    ON RHODESIA, PRESIDENT NASSER SAID THE COLONY'S SEIZURE OF INDEPENDENCE WAS CONSPIRACY. IT WAS A REPETITION OF THE PROBLEM OF ISRAEL, SAID PRESIDENT NASSER, AND NOT A REMOTE ONE FOR EGYPT.

    THE PRESIDENT TOLD THE ASSEMBLY THAT PREPARATIONS WERE BEING MADE FOR THE WITHDRAWAL OF U.A.R. TROOPS FROM THE YEMEN. THEIR OBJECTIVES HAD NOW BEEN REALISED, HE SAID. REFERRING TO THE CEASEFIRE AGREEMENT HE SIGNED WITH KING FEISAL OF SAUDI ARABIA EARLIER THIS YEAR, PRESIDENT NASSER SAID: "I THANK ALLAH THAT GOODWILL PREVAILED AND THE AGREEMENT WAS SIGNED PAVING THE WAY FOR PEACE FOR THE YEMENI PEOPLE."
    PRESIDENT NASSER SAID THAT HIS COUNTRY'S HISTORIC FRIENDSHIP WITH FRANCE HAD BEEN RESTORED AND RELATIONS HAD GREATLY IMPROVED WITH THE UNITED STATES, BUT NOT WITH BRITAIN. HE TOLD THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY THAT THE SOVIET UNION HAD BEEN A GREAT HELP TO THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC. HE REGRETTED THE CONFLICT BETWEEN MOSCOW AND PEKING BUT HE ADDED: "WE BELIEVE IT HAS NOT REACHED THE POINT OF NO RETURN."
