PHONE 32S-2702- 327-3610 Greater Islamic solidarity sought BEIRUT, Lebanon (Reuter; Leaders from about 30 Mos- lem countries gather in Lahore, Pakistan, next week in a new bid for greater Islamic solidarity. Higher oil prices may help, for many of the impoverished regions are pleading for aid and the oil-rich Persian Gulf is steadily accumulating new fortunes. The Feb. 22-24 conference will be the second attempt to cast differences aside and express unified support for Arab brothers in the Middle East." Some Moslem countries in Asia and Africa, facing'dire economic problems made worse by rocketing Arab oil prices, hope that in return for their good will some of the Arab oil riches will filter their way under a basic Koran exhortation: "Give aid and comfort to thy Moslem brother." Arab producers will be urged, observers believe, to feed back some of their huge revenues into development of Asian Moslem countries as they have agreed to do for Africa. Last November the Algiers Arab summit decided to set up an Arab bank for industrial and agricultural development in Africa, with an initial capital of million. It also agreed to further woo the Africans by breaking off all ties with the white minority-ruled countries in the continent and by imposing an oil embargo on South Africa, Rhodesia and Portugal. These Arab gestures are likely to be fresh in the minds of Moslem leaders from Asia as they converge on Lahore, the historic city of beautiful shrines and parks which was once a centre of the Moslem cultural heritage. The troop disengagement agreed to by Egypt and Israel last month is seen as an essen- tial first step towards an over- all Arab-Israeli settlement. It may lessen the impact of the summit, first proposed by Pakistani Prime Minister Zulfikar Ah Bhutto at the height of the October war. The conference is expected to concentrate on political, social and economic problems of the Moslem world and ways of welding Islamic countries into an effective world force.
