Ibn Saud Reported Willing to Join in Move for Pan-arab Federation

King Ibn Saud of Arabia has decided to participate in attempts to organize a pan-Arab federation, according to authoritative Egyptian government circles. These quarters say that he has agreed to send delegates to the next pan-Arab conference and has accepted the decisions reached at the meeting in Alexandria in October. Ibn Saud’s refusal to participate in a pan-Arab movement, until after the post-war settlements, has been one of the chief stumbling blocks to formation of an Arab union.
