  • Description

    Israel's new cabinet met at the Prime Minister's office in Tel Aviv on Sunday (8th November) to discuss possible participation in any resumption of the Jarring Peace Talks. Israel withdrew from the Peace Talks in August after accusing Egypt of violating the ceasefire agreement along the Suez Canal.

    A policy reappraisal has been expected in Israel since the return of Mrs. Meir from talks with President Nixon in the United States last week. As a condition for the resumption of the talks. Israel has so far insisted on a rollback of Egyptian missiles from the standstill zone, but Defence Minister...General Dayan..in recent statements on the Jarring Talks, has not specified whether or not Israel should continue to press for a complete withdrawal of the missiles.

    A communique issue following the cabinet session said only that the Prime Minister, Mrs. Meir, had reviewed her political mission abroad, and that the Chief of Staff... Lieutenant General Bar Lev...had reviewed defence questions. It's expected that another cabinet meeting will be called in the next week before a major Foreign Policy statement in the Knesset.
