Issue 211 - 26 Apr 1983
THE SECRETARY OF STATE GEORGE SHULTZ, having said he would not visit the Middle East, has changed his mind and is now on a ten-day tour of Middle East countries. The announced purpose is to finalise a Lebanon-Israel agreement and to try to revive President Ronald Reagan's peace plan. The Secretary of State's visit is also a demonstration that America is not deterred from initiatives in the region by such outrages as the bombing of the American Embassy in Beirut. The Shultz trip is to take in Egypt, Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and possibly Syria.
