Arab Rulers Meet Ahead of Amman Summit
Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Jordan's King Abdullah were to meet with Syrian dictator Bashar Assad in Damascus on Wednesday for talks ahead of the Arab summit in Amman slated for the end of the month.

The three reportedly were to discuss the situation in Palestinian areas and US Secretary of State Colin Powell's recent remarks calling Jerusalem Israel's capital. The Arab leaders were expected to coordinate diplomatic positions prior to the Arab League meeting to be held in Amman, Jordan on March 27th and 28th.

PLO chief Yasser Arafat hopes the three will adopt positions supporting Palestinian demands that will be brought up at the conference. ISRAEL RADIO also quoted the London-based Arabic newspaper AL-HAYAT as reporting that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein might attend the Arab summit for a few hours in order to address the participants. He boycotted the last emergency summit in October to protest the lack of a pan-Arab will to declare war against Israel.
