WORLD IN BRIEF : IRAQ : Arab Nations Plan Emergency Summit

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Ignoring a threatened boycott by Syria, 18 of the Arab League’s 22 members have agreed to attend an emergency summit May 28 in Baghdad, Iraq, to discuss the influx of Soviet Jews into Israel. Syria regards Iraq as enemy territory. At the meeting, Arab leaders hope to forge a common front concerning the possible settlement of Soviet Jews on Israeli-occupied land, which they believe would thwart hopes for a Palestinian state.
