  • Description

    Israel Prime Minister Menachem Begin says Israel will attend the Cairo talks proposed by President Sadat-even if no-one else goes. But, he says, at no time and in no place will Israeli delegates negotiate with the PLO...which he dubs a 'Nazi organisation'. The leader of the Opposition, Shimon Peres, also asked about the proposed Cairo talks, calls them a "very serious opening".

    SYNOPSIS: The decision to send an Israeli delegate-or a delegation-to Cairo was taken during a lengthy Cabinet meeting in Jerusalem. Israel's swift and positive response to President Sadat's proposal reflected enthusiasm to preserve the momentum set by the President's visit to Jerusalem a week ago. The proposal was for a Cairo meeting of all parties concerned in the Middle East conflict to pave the way for peace talks at Geneva. But Syria has already turned down the plan...and when Mr. Begin spoke to newsmen after the Cabinet meeting...he was adamant that Israel will not negotiate with the PLO.

    Opposition Leader Shimon Peres was enthusiastic about the proposed talks.
