  • Description

    Israeli cabinet ministers met at Prime Minister's Golda Mieir's office in Jerusalem on Sunday (23 July) to discuss the withdrawal of Soviet military personnel from Egypt and Cairo's call for a peaceful solution to the Middle East crisis.

    The cabinet session was to provide the basis of Mrs. Meir's major policy speech to the Israeli Knesset (Parliament) on Wednesday.

    Israel is believed to be planning to put Egypt's latest peace offer to the test by calling for immediate and unconditional negotiations on peace.

    Israel maintains that it is prepared to discuss everything with Cairo, including withdrawal from its occupied territory. However, Israel has also said it will not return to the armistice lines existing before the 1967 Middle East war.

    Among those attending the cabinet session were Army Chief of Staff General David Elazar, Deputy Prime Minister Yigal Allon, Trade and Industry Minister Haim Bar-Lev, Defence Minister Moshe Dayan and foreign Minister Abba Eban.
