The United States Assistant Secretary of State, Mr. Joseph Sisco, has arrived in Tel Aviv?
The United States Assistant Secretary of State, Mr. Joseph Sisco, has arrived in Tel Aviv for talks with the Israeli Government in an attempt to achieve an interim agreement to re-open the Suez Canal. He declined to make any statements to newsmen at the airport. During his week long stay, Mr. Sisco will attempt to break the Israeli-Egyptian deadlock on conditions for re-opening the canal. Israel is expected to give priority to their own concern over Washington's delay in replaying to their request of more Phantom jet aircraft.
