  • Description

    President Anwar Sadat of Egypt met the Untied Stares Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger, on Saturday at the President's holiday villa at Aswan on the banks of the Nile. The Egyptian President set out his country's position on the disengagement of forces following the Middle east conflict. This meeting between the two men was expected to be crucial to the future of the Geneva Peace Conference.

    The meeting took place at Aswan because President Sadat has been recuperating from an attack of bronchitis. Dr. Kissinger had arrived on Friday, and after the meeting on Saturday, he was to fly on to Israel. He was then expected to return to Egypt on Sunday.

    Saturday's meeting lasted for three and half hours, and included a private lunch. Dr. Kissinger was accompanied by Mr. Ellsworth Bunker, his deputy at the Geneva talks. During their first session of talks on Friday the Secretary of State called Mr. Bunker in to take part.

    After the talks, neither side would make any comment on what progress had been made. However, Dr. Kissinger told a newsman as he left that the talks had been "very good".
