Cairo Parley
To Consider
June Defeat
CAIRO (A')-The four most bel-
ligerent Arab nations opened 'a
summit conference in Cairo yes-
terday to discuss means to erase
the consequences of last month's
war with Israel.
Meeting in secret session in the
Presidential Palace were President
Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt,
President Noureddin Atassi of
Syria, President Abdel Rahman
Aref of Iraq and President Hou-
ant Boumedienne of Algeria.
Ahmed Mahgoub
They are expected to be joined
today by Prime Minister Moham-
med Ahmed Mahgoub of Sudan,
who is flying from New York,
where he attended the UN General
Assembly meetings on the Middle
East crisis.
These five are the Arab leaders
most determined to carry on the
war against Israel until the con-
sequences of the defeat in the
June war are eradicated.
Nasser,' however, is reported to
favor building up the Arab ar-
mies to a maximum of prepared-
ness before launching what is oft-
en called "the second round" of
this fight against Israel.
Boumedienne and Atassi appear
to be pressing for an immediate
resumption of military operations
against Israel, and Aref and Mah-
goub may side with them.
King Hussein of Jordan met
with Nasser and Boumedienne in
Cairo early this week but is not
included in the second Arab sum-
mit meeting.
Socialist Syria regards mon-
archist Jordan with suspicion, and
before the war with Israel was ad-
vocating the overthrow of Hus-
sein. That suspician was not eras-
ed when Hussein made up with
his old enemy, Nasser, signed a
mutual-defense treaty, then join-
ed in the war against Israel.
As a militant Socialist, Bou-
medienne is considered cool to-
ward Hussein. He did not' attend
the first meeting between Nasser
and Hussein this week but enter-
ed the joint talks later.
Atassi was the last of the four
leaders to arrive in Cairo, landing
yesterday morning.

In the 122-nation assembly,
delegates from the Communist
and Arab countries threw their
support behind a Pakistani reso-
lution deploring Israel's refusal to
rescind measures taken to put
Jerusalem's Old City under its
control. The resolution called also
for the Security Council to take
the necessary measures to ensure
compliance with the resolution.
A vote on the Pakistani resolu-
tion is not likely until early next
Most delegates predicted the
resolution would be approved in
the assembly, but some believed
Israeli moves to assure access to
the holy shrines might influence
the vote.
Official Israeli sources said in
Jerusalem that Israel and the
Vatican were near agreement that
special status should be given to
the holy places. Msgr. Angelo
Felici, Vatican undersecretary for
extraordinary affairs, was wind-
ing up a week of discreet diplo-
macy in Jerusalem, including a
meeting with President Zalman

end of the two-day secret meeting
issued a statement demanding
that Israel withdraw from Arab
territory conquered in the June
war. But it made no threat of a
"resolute rebuff" if Israel refused.

made this threat in a statement
after a Moscow meeting June 9.

BONN (P)-President Charles de

Germany and other continental
European countries yesterday to
assert their national identities and
escape any domination by the
United States.
Britain, he said, could only be-

its way of life, especially its re-

Until that comes about, de Gaulle

There was no indication the

but Rep. Harley O. Saffers, (D-

JERUSALEM - A foreign Min-

will let "tens of thousands" of
Arab refugees return to the oc-

Jordan as rapidly as possible after
Aug. 10.
That is the deadline date for
applications from those wishing
to return to their west bank
homes. An estimated 100,000 to
150,000 fled across the Jordan in
and after the six-day war.
The return will be coordinated
by the International Red Cross,

two days with six of his top cab-

Although the meetings were held
behind closed doors, de Gaulle's
statement was relayed to news-
men in detail by Roger Vaurs,
chief spokesman for the French
Foreign Ministry.
De Gaulle began by noting that
the dominant fact in the world
today is the enormous power of
the United States. He said there
were two ways that Europeans
could respond. The first was to
accept American hegemony and
become a part of it. This he called
the easy, comfortable way.
No Hostility
The second way, he said, was,
"without hostility to the United
States, to safeguard our national
