United States Assistant Secretary of State Joseph Sisco yesterday (Thursday, August 5) ended the third session of the first round of talks with Israeli Prime Minister Mr.s Golda Meir, her Cabinet and other high diplomatic and government leaders. In all, Mr. Sisco and the Israelis have spoken for seven hours since Friday, July 30 -- and, although no major statements have been made on the talks, it is generally accepted that the main issue under discussion is the finding of the plan for the reopening of the Suez Canal. Substantiating this, Mr. Sisco said after the final talks:
Sources in Cairo say that the Egyptian Government is not satisfied with the progress of the talks between Mr. Sisco and the Israelis -- and this would apparently preclude any immediate visit by Mr. Sisco to cairo for further talks. However, a spokesman at a Washington briefing said that it was likely that the Undersecretary would be going both to Tel Aviv and Cairo again at a later date.
