Mrs. Meir Clarifies Israel's Reservations on Negotiations

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Premier
Golda Meir told the Knesset Wed-
nesday that the Israeli reserva-
tions over the United States peace
initiative did not include a priori
conditions for negotiations. She
said "some of the positions held
by the Israeli government" were
deemed by Israel "proper to em-
phasize on the threshold of pos-
sible talks with the Arab states,"
but that those positions "tally with
the government's program and its
resolutions, as approved by the
Knesset." Those positions "will
guide our representatives in the
talks," she said.

Mrs. Meir made her statement
in answer to a question from
Moshe Sneh, head of the anti-Mos-
cow Maki Communists. She chose
that method to avoid subjecting
her answer to parliamentary de-
bate.
In accepting the U.S. plan on
Aug. 4, the 'Weir government
said that "on the basis of clari-
fications given by the United
States . . Israel is prepared to
reply affirmatively to the pro-
posal for a cease fire on the
Egyptian front." The "clarifica-
tions, which were later reported
to be acceptable to Israel, dealt

with American assurances that
there would be no military build-
ups permitted in the cease-fire
area.
In reply to another question,
Mrs. Meir said that "the conflict
between ourselves and our neigh-
bor countries is not over territory
but over our existence." She add-
ed: "If this were not so, why did
the Arab states refuse to make
peace with us when we were still
using the borders of (June 4)
1967?" In response to a question on
eventual borders, the premier said
her government "has not yet
drawn any peace borders." She
then reiterated that "individual
members of the government might
