Pan-arab Talks, Suspended by Differences of Opinions on Palestine, Resumed in Cairo

Apparently informed by his son, Emir Feisal, concerning the views of the U.S. Government with regard to the Arab-Jewish problem in Palestine, King Ibn Saud, the “strong man of Arabia,” has ordered his special envoy in Cairo to resume discussions with the Egyptian Premier on the question of Arab unity, the press here reports today. Feisal is still in the United States.

The discussions broke down about two weeks ago when the Egyptian Premier refused to accept the suggestion of King Ibn Saud that the Palestine issue be dealt with at once by the Arab world, and suggested that discussions on this question be postponed until after the war. The talks were resumed in Cairo last night.
