• Short Summary

    Secretary of State William Rogers announced today (June 25) what he termed a major new US mideast peace initiative aimed at getting the Arabs and Israelis "to stop shooting and start talking."
    The essence of the still secret US plan, it was understood, was a broadly worded proposal to Egypt, Jordan and Israel for a cease fire of a least 90 days during which UN mediator Gunnar Jarring would start negotiations on the basis of these commitments by the opposing parties:
    - Egypt and Jordan would pledge themselves to the principle of peace with Israel and acknowledge her right to exist within secure borders.

    - Israel in return would pledge withdrawal form Arab lands she conquered in the 1967 war.

    - All parties would carry out the 1967 UN Security Council resolution for a peace settlement.
