Arabs meet, defy Sadat

WAN?

(Continued from Page 1)
THE EGYPTIAN president's major
Arab supporter, Sudanese President
Jaafar el-Numeiry, arrived in Jidda on
Thursday for talks with King Khaled,
apparently seeking Saudi support for
Sadat. The Saudis, after an initial repri-
mand to Sadat for breaking Arab unity,
have maintained silence on his peace
initiatives.%
The Saudi radio said Syria's air force
commander was also expected in Jid-

da, evidently to argue against support
for Sadat.
Kadafy's call for an anti-Sadat front
succeeded in persuading Syria and Iraq
to set aside bitter ideological and
political differences long enough to at-
tend the gathering. But observers noted
the relatively low level of Iraqi repre-
sentation as evidence of continuing
rancor.
LIBYAN OFFICIALS were en-
couraged by apparent delays in organ-
izing Sadat's meeting in Cairo, which
was not scheduled to start until at least'
Dec. 13.
"It shows no Arab country would
come," Libyan Foreign Minister Aly
Triki said, clearly pleased.

There were strong indications, how-
ever, that Khadafy's hardline zeal was
only partly shared by some particih
pants in the Tripoli gathering.
ASSAD, WHO until the Jerusalem
visit had been Sadat's close ally, said
last week that there can be no "di-
vorce" between such Arab leaders;.
only disagreement on tactics.
"This is a conference of reflection
and analysis," Algerian Foreign Min-
ister Abdel Aziz Bouteftika told news-
men. His assessment was interpreted
as an indication that Algeria would also
attempt to keep the Tripoli gathering
from creating an irreparable split be-
tween Sadat and the rest of the Arab
world.
