  • Description

    In Jerusalem on Sunday (29 January), the Israeli Prime Minister announced that Israel would resume its part in the Israeli-Egyptian Defence Minister's talks in cairo. Earlier, Mr. Begin had addressed a dinner party at which he was optimistic about a resumption of talks.

    SYNOPSIS: The dinner party was for a group of visiting American Jews and was held in a Jerusalem hotel. It was an ironic place for Mr. Begin to be so optimistic. It was a speech by him at another dinner two weeks ago that sparked off the withdrawal of the Egyptian delegation from the Jerusalem talks.

    As it happened, the Israeli Cabinet accepted the recommendation, and next day Defence Minister Ezer Weizman was chosen to lead a delegation back to Cairo.

    All Cabinet ministers, including Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan, attended the session which lasted two hours.

    According to Reuter, several ministers drew Mr. Begin's attention to attacks on him in the Egyptian press. But he described them as a normal hazard f his job. News of the outcome came first from a cabinet spokesman.
