Background: The war in Dhofar province of Oman came under review when Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi arrived in neighbouring Aden for a stoppover visit last week (February 28). He was welcomed by the chairman of the Presidency Council of the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen, Mr. Salem Ru'bbya Ali, and members of the Political Bureau.
Although only in Aden for a few hours, Colonel Gaddafi found time to answer newsmen's questions. He was asked his opinion on reports that Iranian troops have been fighting against Omani rebels in Dhofar province. Colonel Gaddafi declared that the Arab land was the property of the Arab people -- "Our duty is to stand against such aggression", he added.
Colonel Gaddafi, who was returning from the Islamic summit in Pakistan, later flew on to Somalia to start a three day official visit.
