  • Description

    The nine Common Market countries produced a Middle East peace plan after a brief Foreign Ministers' meeting in Brussels on Tuesday (November 6).

    The nine called the plan a first contribution. It showed Common Market countries intend to join the Russians and Americans in a search for a lasting Middle East settlement.

    The plan calls for Israel to give up all land captured from Arab countries since 1967 and for the countries involved in the war to negotiate under the United Nations.

    The Israeli Ambassador to the Common Market Mr. Moshe Alon expressed surprise and dismay at the plan. He said he was particularly disturbed at the section calling on Israel to end the territorial occupation it has maintained since 1967.

    Mr. Alon said Britain seemed to have changed its views since it was accepted by the Security Council in 1967. Other Israeli diplomats said Britain and France had forced their EEC partners to accept the plan to get the Arabs to stop their ban on oil exports to Holland.

    Arab oil states stopped sales to Holland because they say the Dutch are pro-Israeli. Holland has embarrassed other EEC member states by asking them to share out their oil if Dutch stocks run low. No mention of Holland's predicament was made at the meeting.
