    Background: The Secretary-General of the Islamic Conference Organisation, Habib Chatti announced on Monday (13 October) that he will travel to Iran and Iraq in the next tow days in a further attempt to end the gulf war, but no details of the revived mission were given. Mr. Chatti said that the positions of the two warring countries were now totally different from when he and Pakistani President Zia Ul-Haq visited the two capitals on an exploratory peace mission. last Friday (10 October) President Zia arrived back in Islamabad after the mission and a tour of Western capitals.

    SYNOPSIS: President Zia and Mr. Chatti said they had found the stands of the two warring countries a little inflexible and based on emotions. But President Zia announced on his arrival home that he was ready to return to Baghdad and Teheran at the first ray of hope for an end to the war. president Zia had been elected by the forty-nation Islamic Conference to represent them on the peace mission. After visiting Iran and Iraq, the Pakistani leader toured western capitals in order to sound out opinion there.

    Earlier this month in a speech to the United Nations, president Zia blamed pressures of super-power rivalry for the war between Iran and Iraq. He said the conflict had arisen from the unstable conditions created in a strategic area by a colonial legacy.

    He appealed to the International Community to acknowledge its responsibility and seek a positive solution to the crisis.
