    U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, Joseph Sisco, resumed talks with Israeli leaders in Jerusalem on?

  • Description

    U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, Joseph Sisco, resumed talks with Israeli leaders in Jerusalem on Monday (2 August). The discussions are aimed at an interim agreement to re-open the Suez Canal, but a continuing officials news blackout has revealed little details of the discussions. A brief communique issued after Mr. Sisco's three-hour meeting with Premier Golda Meir, Defence Minister Moshe Dayan, Deputy Premier Yigal Allon and Foreign Minister Abba Eban merely said that the talks were held in a practical, open and friendly atmosphere.

    Mr. Sisco arrived on Wednesday (28 July) and held the first round of talks with Mrs. Meir and Mr. Eban or Friday (30 July). The inclusion of Mr. Dayan in Monday's talks has led to speculation that specific questions of a Suez deal, in the context of the regional balance of powers, were discussed.

    Tuesday's weekly session of the cabinet was cancelled, however, which could mean that no concrete proposals have yet arisen.
