    This new "detente" between the two countries was announced after three days of talks in Cairo between Egypt's President Anwar Sadat, and President Hafez Al-Assad of Syria. It is no sure what form the union will take, but the two countries will be linked with a unified military command under Egypt's War Minister, General Mohamed Abdel-Ghani Gamassi. The agreement was announced simultaneously in Damascus, and in Cairo, by Egyptian Foreign Minister, Ismail Fahmi.



    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The two countries merged in 1958 as the United Arab Republics, which founded less than three years later.
