The Israeli Government has accepted the secret proposals to reconvene the Geneva Mid-East peace talks brought back from the United States by israeli Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan. The working agreement on the procedures for getting the talks started was drawn up by Mr Dayan and United States Secretary of State Cyrus Vance. It was approved by the Israeli Cabinet the same day Mr Dayan returned with it. The four-and-a-half-hour debate was the longest yet since the cabinet of Prime Minister Menachem Begin came to power in May this year. But the exact details were not revealed.
SYNOPSIS: Prime Minister Begin was at the meeting within hours of being discharged from hospital under doctors' order to slow down his pace of work. Mr. Begin was in hospital being treated for severe exhaustion and recurrence of heart troubles. Despite a barrage of questions, he revealed nothing of his thoughts on the latest proposals.
This was all he would say before being driven directly from the hospital in Tel Aviv to the seat of the Israeli Government in Jerusalem for a private conference with Mr. Dayan before the marathon cabinet meeting.
But on his return, Mr. Dayan himself was more forthcoming. he repeatedly said ti was a good working paper and the Israeli Government should approve it.
