  • Description

    In Cairo on Thursday (22 December), the Middle East Peace Conference called by Egypt's President Anwar Sadat went into recess pending his meeting on Sunday (25 December) with Israeli Premier Menachem Begin at Ismailia.

    SYNOPSIS: The Cairo villa, called Mena House, was once again the venue for the conference which has met only for only three formal sessions in eight days. There were the usual friendly greetings between the delegates as they arrived for the talks, but they were not to stay long. The working session of the day was to last only forty five minutes.

    The Egyptian delegation was later to say that many differences have yet to be settled at the conference, which is also being attended by United Nations' representatives and delegates from the United States. The U.N. and U.S. delegations, however, are not doing much of the talking.

    Conference sources say they have only intervened to give general assistance. Soon after the talks went into recess, the head of the Israeli delegation, Eliahu Ben Elissar, spoke to newsmen.

    The night before the session went into recess, journalists who are covering it were treated to a special cabaret evening.

    All the delegates attending the conference were invited, but few attended. The United States delegates, however, were there to join in the fun.

    And the chief of the United Nations delegation, General Silasvuo, also came along.
