UPI, NEW YOUK TIMES HEARST Arab Crude Producers Delay Talk TRIPOLI, Ubya (AP) — The! meeting Thursday of Arab oil ministers to discuss the oil em bargo on the U.S. has been post*, poned indefinitely, government spokesmen announced Wednesday. A brief communique broadcast by Tripoli radio said the postponement was “at the request of Saudi Arabia and Ku-j wait.” Foreign diplomats here speculated the postponement was, prompted by a four-nation Arab summit in Algiers. The leaders of Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Algeria were gathering there to discuss what the Algerian radio called “new and important developments” since the Arab-Israeli war. There was widespread speculation here that any decision on the oil embargo against the U.S. would be made in Algiers. Postponement of the Tripoli meeting caught Kuwaiti Oil .Minister Abdul Rahman Atiki in Beirut preparing to board ai plane for Tripoli, a Kuwaiti spokesman in Beirut reported. Atiki immediately put off tho trip.
