No less significant is the truth that this used to be the effect of assorted overseas observers and it encouraged their reactions to the scheme and had bearings on its eventual failure. 245 one other attention-grabbing query is the true position disbursed by means of the initiators of the Arab harmony scheme to Saudi Arabia. we've already visible that Nuri attempted to guarantee the Saudi monarch that neither he [Nuri] nor ‘Abd al-Illah was once drawn to any own achieve in reference to the scheme. fifty four IN S E A R C H OF A R A B U N I T Y in addition, in a talk with the Saudi cost d'affaires in Baghdad, Nuri more desirable the placement of Saudi Arabia in his plan. initially, Iraq and united Syria have been envisaged to represent the nook­ stone of the meant Arab League, the proposed framework of the wider Arab harmony which can be joined via the other Arab states at will.

After hesitating approximately even if to ship Jamil al-M idfa‘i to Egypt as well,248 he determined to invite him to visit Egypt. Thereupon, on 17 March Nuri at once approached M ustafa al-Nahhas, the Egyptian leading Minister, in a letter within which Nuri drew N ahhas’ consciousness to Eden’s final assertion and advised retaining an respectable Arab convention in Cairo below the presidency of Nahhas, or a semi -official convention below the presidency of one other amazing Egyptian to be nominated by means of Nahhas. except alluding to the development of the Arab reason the perfect schedule and the date of the proposed convention have been left open by way of Nuri for extra consul­ tation. 249 we haven't any direct resource which tells us why Nuri al-Sa‘id took this fateful choice which proved very harmful to his coverage. within the early days of March he realized from Sir Kinahan Cornwallis, the British Ambassador, that Britain took a really cool and reserved place in regard to his plan250 (see additionally on p . 222). He may have inspiration that in line with Eden’s assertion Britain could help purely an Arab solidarity scheme which might achieve the aid of all m ajor Arab states.
