Special United States envoy, Mr. Alfred Atherton, has been meeting with Israeli officials in Jerusalem to discuss ways of reviving the stalled peace talks between Israel and Egypt.
SYNOPSIS: One of the prickliest issues at the talks is Egypt's proposal -- which Israel has turned down -- of linkage between an agreement and settling the Palestinian problem in the Gaza Strip and occupied West Bank of the Jordan. Dr. Eliahu Ben-Flisar, director general of Israeli Prime Minister Menachem begin's bureau, led the Israeli team. Later, Mr. Atherton described their talks.
