The new state will be established after national referendum Sept. 1 in the three countries. The leaders said it will be the -nucleus of complete Arab unity and be open to other Arab countries. i Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, Syrian President Hafez Assad and Libya's head of state, Col. Muammar Kadafi read the declaration in simul- taneous half-hour radio broadcasts from their capitals. In addition to one president and a federal government, the three leaders said, the military forces of the new state would cooperate to bring about "the decisive retaliation to Israel's continued occupation of Arab land." They said Sudan, which withdrew at the last moment from the week- long talks, will join "at the earliest opportunity and when its special con- ditions allow." The three leaders pledged that their union will conclude no peace treaty nor will it negotiate with Israel. "The Union of Arab Republics will FBI Backer's 'Bugged'; Views Changed WASHINGTON (UPI) Sen. Mike Mansfield, no longer scoffing at the FBI's critics in the Capitol, said Sat- urday he is deeply disturbed by the disclosure that an FBI informer taped his conversations with Rep. John Dowdy Mansfield told reporters that the hoped Sen. Sam J. Erwin Jr., (D- N.C.) would broaden his investigation into civilian spying to look into the Dowdy case and other allegations that Capitol Hill telephones have been bugged. On Thursday, before the Dowdy surveillance came to light, Mansfield pooh-poohed criticism of the FBI and its director, J. Edgar Hoover, as "more noise than substance." But he changed his mind with the disclosure by U. S. District Court Judge Roszel Thomsem in Baltimore that, with the approval of Hoover and Attorney General John N. Mitchell, informer Nathan H. Cohen visited Dowdy in his House office Jan. 20, 1970. with a concealed tape recorder. Cohen also permitted two telephone conversations with Dowdy to be re- corded. At the time Cohen agreed to coop- erate with the FBI, he was under in- dictment on fraud charges. He later pleaded guilty and received a sus- pended sentence. He was subsequently named as a coconspirator but not a defendant in the government's bribery con- spiracy case in which Dowdy is charged with accepting to in- tervene in a federal investigation of the now defunct Monarch Construction Co., of Silver Spring. Md. Mansfield said the eavesdropping on Dowdy was not a proper use of FBI powers "even though they acted under a court order." not abandon one single yard of Arab land occupied by the declara- tion said. The federal president and govern- ment will have the right to move troops from one country to another in the union and take joint decisions on war or peace. Earlier, Egypt's official Middle East News Agency said leaders of the three states also "reviewed the mili- tary and political aspects of the Mid- dle East situation and discussed the role of the Tripoli charter conference in facing the requirements of the Arab nations'.fateful battle" against Israel. Egypt, Syria, Libya and Sudan signed the so-called Tripoli charter a year ago to move toward gradual uni- fication of their states. The signing of the confederation pact in Benghazi, Libya, came on the eighth anniversary of a similar pact signed by Egypt, Syria and Iraq. That agreement collapsed a month after it was initialled. In 1958, Egypt and Syria federated as the United Arab Republic with a common legislature, army and flag. Yemen joined later. The union was dissolved in 1961. There was no immediate comment on the new federation from Israel. TURKEY UNION OF ARAB REPUBLICS K6ANON ISKAfL SAUDI ARABIA Ababa CMJKAl AFRICAN RfP.
