  • Description

    The American Secretary of State, Doctor Kissinger, and the Egyptian leader, President Sadat, concluded a second successful round of talks on the Middle East at President Sadat's country palace just outside Cairo on Friday (December 14).

    After the conference ended both men expressed satisfaction with the latest moves towards a peace conference at Geneva under the auspices of the United Nations.

    Doctor Kissinger told journalists that he and President Sadat had agreed that the disengagement of Israeli and Egyptian ground troops was the primary issue to be settled at the peace conference.

    It is reported that Doctor Kissinger believes peace in the Middle East is now closer than for many years. The Egyptians are also reported to be more confident of progress after Doctor Kissinger's second visit.

    Meanwhile the Israeli cabinet has met again to consider its attitudes towards the peace conference. Doctor Kissinger is due in Jerusalem on Sunday (December 16) for talks with Mrs. Meir and senior Israeli political leaders.

    One of the major problems facing the Israelis is the question of Syria's treatment of Israeli prisoners. The Israeli Cabinet is reported to have decided not to attend the conference if the Syrians do not supply the names of the prisoners.
