In er???inary cabinet session took place at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerus???m at 1600hrs this afternoon. The meeting, chaired by Mrs. Meir, was attended by all the ministers present in the country as well as by General David Elsmar, the Chief of Staff, General Zeira, the Army Chief of Intelligence and General Kharon Yariv, Israel's Chief negotiator at kilometre 101 on the Cairo-Sues road. Negotiations which seemed bogged down over the Egyptian demand, that Israeli forces retreat to the so call November 22nd lines, lines, which Israel ???tains, never existed since the Egyptians never adhered to the Security Council cease-fire resolution and fighting was in progress all along the Suez front on that day, are to be continued on Thursday. Since Egypt turned down 3 Israeli proposals for the disengagement of forces as demanded in Security Council resolution 338, Israel might consider an Egyptian counter proposal or try and work out a ??? way out of the impasse.
