    Background: MOSCOW, USSR

    Palestinian leader, Yasser Arafat, and Soviet Communist party leader, Yuri Andropov, have met for talks on recent Middle East peace negotiations. Mr. Arafat, heading a delegation from the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), arrived in Moscow on January 11. Western diplomats say Mr. Andropov is likely to express concern over growing Arab involvement in the efforts of the United States to achieve peace in the Middle East. Moscow is bitterly opposed to President Reagan's peace plan, which calls for Palestinian self-rule in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza strip in association with Jordan. Mr. Arafat has been quoted as saying he found certain parts of Mr. Reagan's plan "positive", though it fails to mention the right of the Palestinians to self-determination.
