  • Description

    Egyptian Prime Minister, Mustapha Khalil, said on Monday (10 September) that the basic details for the implementation of Palestinian autonomy could be decided as soon as next May. Speaking at the end of a two day visit by U.S. Middle East Envoy, Robert Strauss, Mr. Khalil said Egypt was trying to find ways to speed up negotiations so that progress could be made at this month's autonomy talks in Alexandria.

    SYNOPSIS: American Envoy Robert ??? arrived in Cairo on Sunday (9 September) for briefing on last week's talks in Israel between Egypt's President Sadat and Israeli premier, Menachem Begin. He wanted to know whether the meeting of the two leaders had paved the way for any new peace initiatives on the question of Palestinian autonomy.

    Later, Mr. Strauss discussed with President Sadat the diverging attitudes of Egypt and Israel towards Palestinian self-government. Egypt is known to favour a wider degree of autonomy, but the two men were optimistic about an eventual Egypt-Israel agreement.
