    Soviet Ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Dobrynin, and U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, Joseph?

  • Description

    Soviet Ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Dobrynin, and U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, Joseph Sisco, met at the State Department in Washington yesterday (July 1) to discuss the Middle East Situation.

    But Mr. Dobrynin indicated later that his Government had not yet formulated a response to the latest U.S. peace plan.

    Mr. Sisco has been leading the United States effort to reach an agreement with the Russians on how to bring peace to the Middle East.

    The meeting between the two men took place six days after Secretary of State, William Rogers announced a major U.S. initiative for peace.

    This included a proposal for a temporary ceasefire between Israel and the Arabs and a start to indirect negotiations between the two sides under the auspices of the United Nations.

    The United States wants to enlist Soviet support for the plan, and there was speculation that Mr. Dobrynin might have given the Soviet response at the meeting.

    The Soviet Ambassador, however, told reporters after the talks: "It is up to my Government, not to me, to give a reply. I will deliver it gladly when I receive it".

    He added that he hoped a solution could be found for the Middle East conflict, although he declined to say whether prospects for peace were better now as a result of intense diplomatic activity over the past few months.
