`Liberation of Occupied Territories
Chief OW ctive,' Syri a Declares

(Continued from Page 8)
its troops are supposed to initiate
clashes with Israeli forces; Israel
has charged the Egyptians have
been doing so all along. United Na-
tions observers in the Suez zone
reported that most of the recent
artillery clashes across the canal
were started by Egypt.
The Syrian government said in
Damascus that it will make the
liberation of Israeli-occupied ter-
ritories a principal objective and
said it will cooperate toward this
end in political and military action
with other Arab nations. The state-
ment of policy was published in the
newspaper Al-Baath of the ruling
B a athist Party.
(In Boston, the Christian Science
Monitor said in an editorial that
the new Syrian strongman, Gen.
Hafez al-Assad, appeared to be
moving his country out of the iso-
lation that has surrounded it since
the 1967 war toward improved re-
lations with Egypt, Jordan and
Iraq which "should bolster the
over all Arab political stance in
the Middle East—and could be a
prelude to Syrian cooperation with
United Nations Ambassador Gun-
nar V. Jarring."

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS



(It noted that the radical
Baathist regime in Damascus
had been at loggerheads with the
Baathists running Iraq. Now, the
editorial said, "There has been
an almost overnight improve-
ment in relations with Baghdad"
reflected by the reported station-
ing of Iraqi troops in Syria to
bolster Syrian forces facing
Israel.)

Secrecy surrounded the Big
Four meetings, the tone having
been set for that atmosphere by
a part of last week's Big Four
communique which said that
"active consultations will con-
tinue. These consultations will be
private and confidential."

It was understood that the major
powers would meet once each week
and that alphabetical order of the
countries would determine the
host.
Monday, Mahmoud Fawzi, for-
eign affairs adviser to President
Nasser, conferred with the Big
Four ambassadors and Secretary
General U Thant at the UN.
Some observers thought he am-
plified the Egyptian response to a
questionnaire submitted to Israel
and its Arab foes by UN Mid East
peace envoy Dr. Jarring. The Jor-
danian and Israeli replies were
understood to have been given to
the Big Four envoys.

The Cairo newspaper Al Ahram,
regarded as a spokesman for
Nasser, said that four major Arab
guerrilla organizations have form-
ed a unified command to coordi-
nate action against Israel. The new
group. it said, is called the Com-
mand for the Palestinian Armed
Struggle. Its members were re-
ported to be El Fatah, the Popular
Front for the Liberation of Pale-
stine, the Syrian-supported el-
Saiqa, and the Democrat Popular
Front.

Fawzi's movement back and forth
to the capital and meetings with
the President and Rogers was
usual treatment for a representa-
tive of a nation that has no diplo-
matic ties with Washington. Fawzi
was understood to be discussing
the possibility of renewing those
connections.
According to some UN sources,
Fawzi Monday urged the earliest
possible implementation of the
Security Council's Nov. 22, 1967,
resolution which laid out the prin-
ciples for a Mid East settlement.

that Dr. Jarring, who has been in
