    Background: The President of the Republic of Mali, General Moussa Traore, is seeking closer co-operation with Arab States, particularly in the areas of technology and economics. President Traore arrived in Syria on Thursday (7 February) as part of a tour of his country's north African neighbours.

    SYNOPSIS: President Traore flew in to Damascus with the same message he had presented in Iraq just a day before.

    Syria's President Hafez Al-Assad and Prime Minister Al-Kasam were to hear a declaration of support for Arab States, and a denunciation of the Israel-Egypt peace accords. President Traore, who has since visited the Golan Heights, says a just and lasting peace in the Middle East can be achieved only when Israel withdraws from occupied lands.

    The Mali leader additionally wants Israel to pull out of Jerusalem and restore all Palestinian rights. Both Presidents also have held a series of discussions on relations between their two countries, and Arab developments.

    President Traore is seeking the strengthening of Arab-African cooperation and the non-aligned movement, especially on trade and an exchange of technical expertise.
