Background: The Libyan Prime Minister and Vice President Abdel Salam Jalloud stopped off in Pakistan on Thursday (3 August) for talks with Pakistani leader General Zia-ul Haq. Major Jalloud, the number-two man in the Libyan Jamahiriyah, was accompanied by a 50-member party. After talks with General Zia the Libyan delegation flew to Peking.
SYNOPSIS: General Zia's official residence in Islamabad was the scene for the meeting between the Pakistani leader and Major Jalloud, second only to Colonel Gaddafi in the Libyan Government. The party from the Libyan Jamahiriyah included three members of ministerial rank among them the Foreign Affairs Secretary Dr. Abdus Salam Al-Tareiki. The visit was a brief stopover for the Libyans who were on their way to China for walks with the government. In fact the Libyan plane was late arriving in Islamabad and the two leaders were unable to complete the planned schedule of talks before Major Jalloud and his party left for Peking.
