    Background: MEMBERS OF THE ARAB LEAGUE'S ECONOMIC COUNCIL MET IN CAIRO LAST NIGHT (MONDAY) TO TRY TO FORGE STRONGER ECONOMIC LINKS BETWEEN ARAB STATES. THIRTEEN OF THE LEAGUE'S 14 MEMBERS WERE PRESENT. TUNISIA, WHICH HAS BEEN IN DISAGREEMENT WITH SOME OF THE OTHER MEMBERS IN THE PAST, WAS THE ONLY STATE ABSENT ALTHOUGH IT WAS NOT IMMEDIATELY KNOWN WHETHER IT WOULD COMPLETELY BOYCOTT THE MEETING.

    THE MAIN SUBJECTS, DUE FOR DISCUSSION AT THIS, THE 13TH. MEETING OF THE COUNCIL, WERE THE CREATION OF A GBP100,000,000 (STERLING) ARAB DEVELOPMENT FUND, FORMATION OF AN ARAB ECONOMIC BLOC AND ESTABLISHMENT OF A FUND TO HELP COUNTRIES "AFFECTED BY ISRAELI AGGRESSION."
    FOREIGN MINISTERS OR THEIR DELEGATES MET UNDER THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF DR. OTHMAN EL HADRY, THE SUDAN AMBASSADOR IN CAIRO.

    AT THE OPENING OF THE CONFERENCE, THE DELEGATES WERE TOLD THAT THE LEAGUE WAS FOLLOWING WITH GREAT CARE ISRAEL'S ATTEMPTS TO JOIN THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET AND ASSOCIATE WITH THE LATIN AMERICAN COMMON MARKET AND THE EUROPEAN ORGANISATION FOR COAL AND STEEL.
