    Background: Reports from Jerusalem indicate that the Israeli cabinet would be prepared to support Peking's admission to the United Nations and General Assembly so long as Taiwan be allowed self representation at the UN.

    Reuters reports state that sources in Jerusalem say the cabinet decided at its meeting on Sunday (24 October) that it would oppose the seating of two Chinese delegations at the UN, but would favour Taiwan remaining as a separate entity, representing the island and its people, but not the people of the Republic of China. A final decision on support for the Albanian resolution calling for the removal of Taiwan from the UN was not taken.

    At the same meeting, the Cabinet was believed to have discussed its reply to the latest United States initiative to revive the stalled talks on a partial agreement to reopen the Suez Canal. It was expected that the Cabinet would accept the American proposal for indirect talks with Egypt under the auspices of an American mediator. But no official communique has been issued.
