  • Description

    United States Special Envoy Robert Strauss on Wednesday (11 September) promised increased efforts to reach accord on self-rule for the Israeli-occupied West Bank of the Jordan and the Gaza Strip. He told reporters shortly after arriving in Israel that he will devote all his time in the coming months to Palestinian autonomy. Though some progress has been made on a number of technical details sharp differences on key issues remain. But after conferring all day on Wednesday (11 September) with Israeli leaders on the autonomy question Mr. Strauss said he was satisfied with the pace of the negotiations.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr Strauss arrived in Tel Aviv after talks in Cairo with President Anwar Sadat. He was carrying new specific proposals to speed up negotiations on Palestinian autonomy. The Israeli and Egyptian delegations are deadlocked on the issues of East Jerusalem and the degree of power to be granted to Palestinians in occupied areas. But despite this Prime Minister Begin and Mr. Strauss say they remain optimistic.
