  • Description

    Israel decided on Monday (28 December) to resume the stalled Middle East peace talks under U.N. representative Dr. Gunner Jarring. The decision was taken at a cabinet meeting in Jerusalem, and comes four months after Israel accused Egypt of installing Soviet missiles along the Suez canal, causing a break-down in the peace-talks.

    The unanimous decision by the cabinet climaxed a long policy re-appraisal by Israel after it realised that its earlier demands for an Egyptian missile pull-back were not practicable.

    Guarantees of military and economic aid and other political assurances from Washington played a decisive part in enabling the Premier to announce that conditions were now ripe for a resumption of the Jarring talks.

    On Tuesday (29 December), Mrs. Meir said in the Knesset (Parliament) that Israel was returning to the Jarring talks without any prior conditions, and she rejected Egyptian threats of a renewal of hostilities.

    She appealed to Egypt to open a new page of peace in relations between Israel and Egypt.
