  • Description

    The Israeli Cabinet yesterday (Sunday) held a special two-and-a-half hour session in Jerusalem to consider latest progress in Middle East peace negotiations. Afterwards, Israel announced that it would continue to strive for peace in talks under United Nations envoy Gunnar Jarring, despite a discouraging response from the Egyptians.

    During the meeting, Prime Minister Golda Meir and Foreign Minister Abba Eban were authorised to draft Israel's official reply to the Egyptian proposals, which were published in New York last week.

    Mr. Eban claimed at the meeting that the latest Egyptian note to Dr. Jarring had failed to reply to the principal clauses contained in the Israeli peace plan submitted a fortnight ago.

    The Israeli plan has not been officially published. An alleged version of their proposals published in Tunisia has been ascribed by the israelis to a leak on the Arab side -- and one likely to undermine the quiet diplomacy essential to the success of the Jarring talks.
