Mubarak Ends Gulf Tour Seeking Unified Arab Stand
Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak left Abu Dhabi on Sunday at the end of a Gulf tour that also took him to Saudi Arabia.
Mubarak’s talks with his hosts focused efforts to hammer out a united Arab stand on efforts to end eight months of Israeli-Palestinian bloodshed, said Reuters.
Mubarak left Abu Dhabi after talks with United Arab Emirates President Sheikh Zaid bin Sultan Al Nahayan on "efforts to stop the Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people,” the official UAE news agency WAM said.
Mubarak arrived in Abu Dhabi Saturday night, coming from Jeddah where he had held talks with King Fahd and Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz on the Palestinian crisis, said reports.
According to Egyptian Information Minister Safwat Al Sharif, Mubarak’s talks with the Saudi leaders focused on “finding a mechanism to implement the Mitchell report and ways to support the Palestinian people,” according to the daily Al Ahram.
The minister added that bilateral talks were also on the agenda of Mubarak’s meeting with the Saudi leaders.
