CAIRO, EGYPT:  Saudi Arabian King Saud ibn Abd al-Aziz (1902 - 1969) (R) and Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser (1918 - 1970) confer in March 1956 at Kubbeh Palace in Cairo during  Syria-Saudi Arabia and Egypt meeting. Saud ibn Abd al-Aziz succeeded his father King Ibn Saud in November 1953. In March 1958, bowing to pressure from the royal family, King Saud conferred full powers to the Crown Prince Faisal ibn Abd al-Aziz and was forced to abdicate in his favour in November 1964.
