  • Description

    Relations between member states, the Palestine question, an appeal by the Algerian FLN for "volunteers", and a demand that NATO military bases be removed from Arab territories were four of the main items on the agenda of the Arab League Foreign Ministers' conference, opening at Shtura, Lebanon, Aug. 22.

    Jordan's Foreign Minister, Musa Nasser, informed assembled delegates from nine Arab states that King Hussein had ordered the cessation of Jordan's radio campaign against the United Arab Republic as a goodwill gesture, and demanded that the U.A.R. should respond similarly. Persia's supposed recognition of Israel is likely to promote heated discussion.

    Responsible for wrecking the last Arab League meeting, the Palestine question is an even more explosive problem. Both Iraq and the U.A.R. are sponsoring "Palestine entity" and training two separate "liberation armies" to the annoyance of Jordan which regards them primarily as devices intended to undermine the ten-year-old settlement incorporating the rump of Palestine in Jordan.

    Krim Belkacem, Deputy Premier of one "Algerian Provisional Government" - the F.L.N. - asked delegates to send volunteers to Algeria, and that all Arab states should severe diplomatic, economic, cultural and technical relations with France. He later told reporters - kept outside by a strong security guard - that volunteers from Arab countries, Africa or Asia would be welcomed provided they were organized with their Government's official knowledge.
