  • Description

    A decision on whether Israel will return to the suspended middle east peace talks is expected to be made within the next few days. The Israel cabinet mot today (Sunday) and it is believed that a majority of ministers favoured a resumption of discussions under the auspices of the United Nations advocate, Gunnar Jarring.

    Israel withdrew from the Jarring discussions in September after complaining that Egypt had violated the military standstill agreement in the Suez Canal zone.

    Today's meeting followed the return of the Defence Minister, Moishe Dayan from Washington and the Foreign Minister, Abba Eban, from Britain. It is expected the Israeli cabinet will further discuss the possibility of rejoining the Jarring negotiations next weekend.

    The Secretary General of the United Nations, U Thant, is to report on the progress towards the resumption of the Jarring talks on January 5.
