    Background: THE UNITED NATIONS MIDDLE EAST ENVOY, DR. GUNNAR JARRING, YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) ENDED TWO DAYS OF TALKS WITH THE EGYPTIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, MAHMOUD RIAD, AND RETURNED TO HIS HEADQUARTERS IN CYPRUS. AFTER THEIR 90 MINUTE MEETING IN CAIRO, MR. RIAD SAID THAT DR. JARRING HAD MADE NO PROGRESS TOWARDS PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

    MR. RIAD ADDED THAT THE U.N. MISSION IS STILL DEADLOCKED BECAUSE ISRAEL CONTINUED TO RAISE SIDE ISSUED AND AVOID THE CRUX OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION WHICH CALLS FOR WITHDRAWAL FROM ARAB TERRITORIES.

    HE SAID HE WOULD SEND DR. JARRING A MEMORANDUM CONFIRMING EGYPT'S POSITION ON THE DEADLOCK. MEANWHILE, CAIRO ACCEPTED THE HOLDING OF ANY CONFERENCE AIMED AT ENDING, WHAT IT CALLED, ISRAELI AGGRESSION.

    MR. RIAD WAS COMMENTING ON REPORTS OF A PROPOSED FOUR-POWER CONFERENCE BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES, BRITAIN, FRANCE, AND THE SOVIET UNION TO DISCUSS THE ISSUE.

    THE EGYPTIAN DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER, SALAH GOHAR, ALSO ATTENDED THE MEETING BETWEEN MR. RIAD AND THE U.N. REPRESENTATIVE.
