Cease Fire Ends, but Guns Stay Silent

(Continued from Page 1)
the Suez cease fire which expired
at midnight last Sunday. He called
it a "shocking political and moral
scandal." Moscow refused to go
along with such an appeal, appar-
ently to avoid embarrassing Presi-
dent Sadat of Egypt who said his
government would agree to no
further extensions of the truce.
Eban called Egypt's reply to
Jarring's Feb. 8 questionnaire
"quite unacceptable as a solution."
He maintained that Israel's reply,
on the other hand, offered "a wide
range of possibilities."
On Saturday, Eban said Israel
rejected Sadat's refusal to extend
the Suez cease fire but said that
what mattered was that there
should be no renewal of shooting.
He spoke at a press conference
shortly after Sadat announced in
Cairo that his government would
accept no further extension of the
cease fire.
Sadat said, however, that this
"did not mean that political action
will stop and guns will start shoot-
ing." He said diplomatic peace in
itiatives will continue. Eban said
Israel did not share Sadat's ap-
proach and held that the cease fire
continues to exist by virtue of the
Security Council's resolution of
June 1967, which established the
cease fire that ended the Six-Day
War. Eban said that resolution had
binding 'force and could not be
abrogated by either party.
Sadat said he decided against a
further truce extension after a
secret visit last week to Moscow.
Israel meanwhile released the full
text of its note submitted to Jar-
ring on Feb. 26 for transmission to
Cairo. Eban said at his press con-
ference that the Israeli note was
more positive and constructive than
the note Egypt sent to Jarring
The point in the Israel docu-
ment which aroused Cairo's ire
and brought Israel criticism from
Thant and several Western diplo-
mats last week was the flat state-
ment that "Israel will not with-
draw to the pre-June 5, 1967
Lnes." That statement followed
an expression of willingness by
Israel to terminate "all claims
and states of war and acts of hos-
linty or belligerency between Is-
rael and Egypt" and to respect
"the sovereignty, territorial in-
tegrity and political independ-
ence of the (JAR." Another sore
point covered in the Israeli note
wrs the Palestinian refugee
problem and the related claims of
both parties.
The note said: "In this connec-
tion Israel is prepared to negotiate
with the governments directly in-
volved on (a) the payment of com-
pensation for abandoned lands and
property and (b) participation in
the planning of the rehabilitation of
the refugees in the region." The
proviso continued: "Once the obli-
gations of the parties toward the
settlement of the refugee issue
have been agreed, neither party
shall be under claim from the

body pledges by Israel not ta per-

armed forces or property of the
UAR; that it will not intefere in
the domestic affairs of the UAR
and will not participate in alliances
against the UAR or permit the sta-
tioning of troops or other parties
which maintain a state of belliger-
ence against the UAR. What Israel
demanded from Egypt was similar
to what Israel offered. It asked the
termination of states of war, hos-
tility and belligerency, respect and
acknowledgment of Israel's sover-
In Washington, the State Depart-
ment Tuesday continued to take a
cautious, noncommittal approach
to the pert of Thant's Middle East
program report which criticized
Israel for refusing to commit itself
to total withdrawal from Sinai. De-
partment spokesman Charles Bray
told reporters at Tuesday's news
briefing that he could not verify
the transcript of Monday's briefing
by Robert J. McCloskey, who said
the U. S. endorsed the Thant report
generally but refused to say whe-
ther it approved the specific call
for a response by Israel on the
withdrawal question.
Bray said he was not question-
ing the validity of the transcript.
A copy of the text, made available
to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
Tuesday, failed to confirm the New
York Times story which 'claimed
that McCloskey had expressed U.S.
endorsement of the full Thant re-
port including its call to Israel to
"respond favorably." Bray refused
to comment on the Times' story di-
rectly. He told newsmen, however,
"In present circumstances I will
reiterate the doctrine that in am-
biguity there is clarity. Let my re-
marks on the Middle East stand on
that." The JTA learned Tuesday
that some State Depar tm e n t
sources described the Times re-
port as a "far-out interpretation of
what McCloskey said."
ttray would not comment on the
reported recent letter from Secre-
tary of State William P. Rogers to
Egyptian Foreign Minister Mah-
mood Riad assuring Egypt that the
U. S. was doing everything it could
to persuade Israel to change its
position on withdrawal from Sinai.
He also refused to comment on a
reported message from President
Nixon to President Sadat. Asked if
Ambassador Jarring was expected
to send another message to Israel,
he replied: "We are anxious to see
the Jarring mission proceed but
have no specifics on how it might
proceed." Asked if he saw any evi-
dence of a cooling of U. S. rela-
tions with Israel, Bray replied:
"Not any that is perceptible to us."


TEL AVIV (JTA)—Israel com-
plained of Dew Egyptian truce vio-

plaint referred to overflights by two
Egyptian Sukbol-7 bombers of Is-

He added: "We continue to do
