A two-week conference to decide on plans for intensifying the Arab boycott against Israel opens tomorrow in Beirut, attended by delegates from the United Arab Republic, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, the Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Kuwait.

The Arab conference coincides with the annual conference of West German diplomats in the Middle East which is also meeting in Beirut. A report from Bonn today said that one of the topics of the agenda on the conference of the West German diplomats is how to check the propaganda in Arab countries conducted by Communist East Germany against the Bonn Government. East German propagandists are attempting to incite the Arabs against West Germany by telling them that the reparations pact between Israel and the Bonn Government is “an act of hostility against the Arab nations. “
