  • Description

    President Anwar Sadat, accompanied by a large entourage arrived in Vienna on Friday (7 July) for talks with the Austrian Government and Israeli Labour Party leader Mr. Shimon Peres. Mr. Perez who said he is not negotiating for the Israeli Government, described the weekend meeting as an "exchange of views" which could awaken hopes of a Middle East settlement.

    SYNOPSIS: President Sadat began his visit by adding fuel to reports that he would meet President Carter, who is due in West Germany at the end of next week. Mr. Sadat was due to leave on Thursday, the day before Mr. Carter arrives, but he has now decided to stay until Friday. But Mr. Sadat said he had no plans to meet the American leader. There was tight security as he arrived at the airport. It is Mr. Sadat's second visit to Austria this year, and his second meeting with Mr. Perez. Both meetings were organised by the Austrian Chancellor Bruno Kreisky.

    Mr. Perez has been supported by the Austrian leadership who think his government would be more flexible than that of Mr. Begin. When he arrived, Mr. Perez was asked if Israel had plans to change the status of Jerusalem.
