Sisco, Eban Hold Working Session;
Egyptian Welcome Described Eager

sistant Secretary of State Joseph
J. Sisco emerged from a 21/2-hour
meeting with Foreign Minister
Abba Eban at noon Wednesday and
told newsmen "We had a thorough,
extensive talk on the Middle East
Sisco, who arrived in Israel
Tuesday after a four-day visit in
Egypt, met Defense Minister
Moshe Dayan Wednesday after-
noon. His meeting with Eban was
described as a "working session."
The American diplomat would say
nothing beyond his brief ,remark.
(New York Times correspondent
Raymond H. Anderson reported
from Cairo Wednesday that despite
persistent Egyptian outcries
against the U. S., Sisco "received
a cordial, almost eager welcome"
when he arrived in the Egyptian
capital last Friday.
("A fundamental purpose of his
visit, it was understood, was to
clear away any misunderstandings
that may have resulted from the
curtailment of direct diplomatic
dialogue after the break in rela-
tions" between Egypt and the
U. S., Anderson wrote.
(He said Sisco "received atten-
tive and polite hearings from
President Gamal Abdel Nasser and
other Egyptian officials for ex-
planations of Washington's atti-
tudes and policies toward the
(According to Anderson, it was
clear that the U. S. "would favor
a prompt restoration of diplomatic
relations with Cairo to improve
communications and the complex
dialogue. But as Mr. Sisco depart-
ed, it was equally clear that the
Egyptian leadership remained
wary of such a step.")
On Thursday, he toured Israeli
settlements in the Jordan Valley
and crossed the Allenby Bridge in
the afternoon on his way to Am- ;
man, Jordan. Some Israeli news-I
papers commented Tuesday on the
brevity of Sisco's visit to Israel,
compared to his four-day stay in
Cairo which ended Monday. West-
ern diplomats here said this might
mean that the Nixon administra-
tion felt it had much more fence
mending to do in Egypt.
Sisco told newsmen at the air-
port that his visit to the Mid
East en route to a meeting of
U .S. mission chiefs in Teheran,
was to hear at first hand the
hopes and concerns of the lead-
ers of the countries of the area.
• "As to my visit to the Arab
states and Israel, I wish to empha-
size that the American policy is
fully based on the UN resolution
of Nov. 22, 1967. America sees in
this resolution a fundamental es-
sentiality to the peace in this area.
This peace is the only alternative
to the tragic cycle of death and
destruction," Sisco said.
He added that the U. S. "will
pursue efforts to help all parties
concerned reach an agreement in
whatever possible way to help all
those countries that would carry
out the UN resolution. It is essen-
tial that the leaders in the region
make more efforts to try and come
to terms."
Israeli leaders were expected to
ask Sisco for a detailed rundown
of his talks in Cairo with Presi-
dent Nasser and other high Egyp-
tian officials. Some sources said
the Israel government would also
renew its request for more Phan-
tom and Skyhawk jets and would
ask for $1,500,000,000 in U. S. eco-
nomic aid over the next five years.
They were expected to stress
Israel's demand for restoration of

the cease fire which Egypt re-
nounced a year ago and would
reiterate Israel's refusal to accept
the Mid East peace plan outlined
last Dec. 9 by Secretary of State
William P. Rogers.
(Washington Star correspon-
dent Eli Eyal reported in Jeru-
salem Tuesday that Sisco might
have brought new Egyptian
cease-fire proposals to Israel but

any proposals from Egypt are
likely to be met with skepticism
by Israelis. He quoted a foreign

1967 war.
(Defense Minister Moshe Dayan
said Tuesday that possible clashes
between the Israeli air force and
the Soviet SAM-3 technicians in
Egypt would constitute "war with
the Russians, no matter how it is
In an official interview in the
armed forces magazine Bama-
haneh, given special significance
because of its coinciding with the
Sisco visit, Gen. Dayan said of
such clashes, "It is not what we
want. We do not want to fight the
Russians, and with cautious opti
mism I hope we shall not get to
do it.")
("Israel is about to get a more
lenient payment schedule on its
purchase of 50 Phantom jets in
1968, Paul Ward wrote Tuesday
in the Baltimore Sun. The origi-
nal contract called for cash pay-
ment of two-thirds of the $300,-
000,000 cost of the planes. The
new terms will be cash payment
of only $100,000,000, the rest to
be paid in 10 years.
(The easing of credit allow-
ances, Ward stated, is an outcome
of the Nixon administration prom-
ise to "respond to certain of Is-
rael's short-term financial requests
while studying further its longer-
range needs" when it turned down
Israel's request for an additional
25 Phantoms and 100 Skyhawk jets.
(In announcing the Nixon deci-
sion, William Rogers, secretary .
of state, said there would also be
an expanded PL-480 program for
purchase of surplus food under
favorable credit arrangements.
Ward stated that administration
sources said "The amount in-
volved . . . about 840.000,000 and
payment is to be made in dol-

ministry official as saying that
Nasser might propose a cease
fire to give him the opportunity
to install Soviet SAM.3 antiair•
craft missiles unhindered by
Israeli air attacks. According
to Eyal, Israel has already stop-
ped bombing raids on military
installations around Cairo but
has not announced it yet.)
The main area of agreement is
on the danger of the Sovietization
of the Middle East. In addition,
Israel believes it can convince
the United States that its deterrent
strength alone is able to preserve
the pro-Western regimes of Jor-
dan and Saudi Arabi from the en-
croachments of radical Arab gov-
ernments and guerrilla take-overs.
The request for economic aid
was considered of paramount im-
portance. It exceeds considerably
the $1,000,000,000 requested by
Premier Golda Meir when she
visited President Richard M.
Nixon in Washington last Septem-
ber. Israeli economic planners say
they need $300,000,000 annually to
offset Israel's rapidly depleting
foreign currency reserves that are
already dangerously low.
Press reports from Cairo say
Sisco had been informed by Egyp-
tian Foreign Minister Mahmoud
Riad that Egypt insists on nothing THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
