New Talks on Arab Unity Announced; Palestine Arabs Will Not Be Represented

Premier Nahas Pasha has invited the Arab States which participated in the preliminary Pan-Arab talks to designate representatives to a “preparatory committee” which will complete preparations for convocation of an Arab unity congress, an Egyptian Foreign Office spokesman said today.

The Foreign Office spokesman pointed out that invitations to participate in the preparatory committee went out to the Arab states which had already had Pan-Arab talks here with the Egyptian Premier. Except for unofficial visits by some Palestine Arab leaders, Nahas Pasha has not had such talks with Palestine delegates. It is assumed from this that Palestine Arabs will not be represented on this preliminary committee.
