stressed that American relations
with the UAR were constantly
improving, since the Cairo-Mos-
cow rift. They said that the UAR,
though neutralist, was a friendly
nation, and that the possibility
of an invitation to Nasser at some
future date could not be entirely
ruled out. They indicated that, if

answer by all Arab leaders who
received the message.
Premier Kassem said Iraq re-
fused to negotiate about Pales-
tine because it was up to the
Arab states to solve the Palestine
issue without permitting any for-
eign country to interfere. He
said Iraq would support the Pal-
estinian Arab refugees "with
money, men and arms, and politi-
cal efforts."
In Damascus, Syria, the Arab
League announced sweeping new
plans to tighten and intensify the
Arab blockade, boycott, and em-
bargo against Israel. An an-

cott office said the tightening re-
sulted from recent developments,
including a boycott conference
in the Arab sector of Jerusalem.
The new tactics will be aimed
at severing Israeli commercial
ties in Africa through a joint
Arab program. It will feature
economic aid to emergent Afri-
can countries, if such countries
reject Israeli help..

ment and people believe that an
honest solution can be found and
are determined to take part in
the work and the shouldering of
the heavy burden which will lead
to conclusions if the parties con-
cerned sincerely wish them to
do so.
"We want to contribute to a
solution of the Palestinian refu-.
