Reported Allon-Hussein Border Meetings,
Israel's Readiness to Meet With Jarring
Point to Easing Tensions in Middle East


Premier Yigal Allon and King Hus-
sein of Jordan met secretly for
discussions that could lay the
ground work for peace talks be-
tween Israel and Jordan, it was
disclosed here.
The meeting took place during
the second half of October on
Israeli soil in a military compound
south of the Dead Sea. Reports
of the meeting were known to
i:ewsmen here for almost a week
but '.e -e suppressed by the cen-
Disclosure was permitted only
after Time magazine, published
Tuesday, reported that Allon and
Hussein have held a series of se-
cret border meetings to explore
the possibilities of unilateral peace
talks and that King Hussein has
met at least once with Premier
Golda Meir.
The Time story was believed to
have been smuggled out of Israel
to avoid the censor. Protests by
newsmen here led to permission
to break the story within the
limits of the report carried by
Time, but there was no official con-
Last month's Hussein-Allon
meeting reportedly was limited
to commitments by both sides
that could improve relations be-
tween Israel and Jordan.
King Hussein was said to have
promised Allon that he would cede
no Jordanian enclaves to Pales-
tinian guerrillas and that in the
course of time he would suppress
all terrorist activities against Is-
rael from Jordanian soil.
The king reportedly complained
that talk by Israeli leaders of a
Palestinian state with Amman as
its capital was a virtual invitation
to the Palestinians to try to take
over his kingdom. Allon's reply
is not }mown.
It was noted here, however, that
Israeli cabinet ministers recently
have refrained from talking about
a Palestinian entity and that cer-
tain of them have advocated in-
creased autonomy for the West
Bank Arabs.
It was reported here last week
that Israeli leaders consider a se-
parate peace with Jordan within
the realm of possibility since the
death of President Gamal Nasser
of Egypt and King Hussein's vic-
tory over the guerrillas in the Jor-
danian civil war last September.
According to Time magazine,
Hussein has not yet agreed to uni-
lateral talks with Israel but one
result of the most recent border
meetings "is that broader nego-
tiations with representatives of
other Arab states can be expected
to follow." So far, Time said, Hus-
sein and Allon agreed to cooperate
in neutralizing the Palestinian com-
mandos and expanding economic

relations between Jordan and Is-
Meanwhile, new fighting was re-
ported Monday between Palestinian
guerrillas and the Jordanian army
in Irbid and Jerash.
On Tuesday night, Allon said
that Hussein's regime, once con-
sidered the shakiest in the Arab
world, is now the most stable.
Transport Minister Shimon Peres,
who has been sounding out West
Bank Arab leaders recently, dis-
missed the idea of an autonomous
"Palestinian entity" as "unrealis-
Allon, addressing the Engineers
Club here, said the stable condi-
tions in Jordan resulted from the
breaking up of terrorist organiza-
tions in that country and the up-
heavals that recently occurred in
Syria and Iraq. He described King
Hussein as one of the central fig-
ures in the Arab world and said
that he was ready to continue the
cease fire and, in fact, was respon-
sible for the quiet conditions that
now prevail along the Israel-Jor-
dan border.
Allon made no mention of the re-
ports that he met secretly with
King Hussein on several occasions.
Peres, at the jubilee conference
of WIZO, the Women's Interna-
tional Zionist Organization in Tel
Aviv, said that a new kind of re-
lationship has emerged between
Jews and Arabs for the first time
in history in the occupied terri-
tories. He said the seemingly un-
soluable Arab-Israel conflict should
be left to time to work out.
He said the approach to peace
should be gradual, allowing each
country to attain that which it
considers most important. For Is-
rael, he said, it would be unhin-
dered navigation through the
Straits of Tiran and for Egypt, the

resumption of normal life along the
Suez Canal.

Defense Minister Moshe Dayan
proposed Tuesday night that Israel
and Egypt renegotiate their Aug.
7 cease fire agreement on the
basis of a mutual disengagement
on both sides of the Suez Canal.
Gen. Dayan made the proposal
at a closed meeting of the Labor
alignment's Knesset faction, from
which the press and even minis-
terial aides were excluded. The
substance of his remarks was leak-

ed to newsmen later by highly re-
liable sources.
Gen. Dayan said that the new

cease fire agreement should super-
sede the Aug. 7 agreement which
was extended on Nov. 6 for an-
other 90-day period and should
go into effect before the extension
expires Feb. 5, 1971.
He said the new accord would

Gen. Dayan has in mind a mutual

the defense minister reportedly
suggested the creation of a de-
militarized zone of 10 - 20 miles in

width on both sides of the water-

The report was subsequently de-
nied but has persisted. Some press
reports here last week said Gen.
Dayan intended to present such a
plan to high Nixon administration
officials when he visits the United
States next month. Such a develop-
ment could lead to reopening the
Suez Canal.
The Jewish Telegraphic Agency
reported Sept. 9 that a proposal by
Gen. Dayan to renegotiate the

on the highest government levels
and that it might be taken up in
Washington by Premier Golda Meir,
who was preparing at that time
