Mystery Surrounds Visit
to Nixon by ..., Mrs. Meir

BY DAVID LANDAU
Jerusalem Correspondent

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The
suddenness with which Golda
Meir's visit to Washington
Wa c-1arranged and announced
r )ally led observers to
w,_ ...er whether something
untoward, some special cri-
sis, had occurred in commun-
ications between Jerusalem
and Washington. Officials
here all firmly deny this.
Apparently, the premier is
going to the President not be-
cause of any one single inci-
dent—but rather because of
the whole trend of the U. S.-
Israel dialogue over recent
days. Mrs. Meir herself hint-
ed on her "Face the Nation"
interview that she had some
cause for concern by events
that have happened over the
past few days.
The trend is of U. S. pres-
sure on Israel - and Israeli
concessions. The pressure is
not intense as yet, and the
concessions are not vitally
harmful to Israel's interests.
But the premier wants to see
where this is leading to, on
what issues Mr. Nixon would
rather press Israel than con-
front the Soviets, to what ex-
tent Israel can look to U. S.
support in the hard political
obstacle course that lies
ahead.
If there is to be a head-on
collision with Washington,
Mrs. Meir wants to be ap-
prised of it as early as possi-
ble, and make an advance
effort to head it off.
Sources here are saying
that Mrs. Meir wants to talk
over the various still unre-
solved problems of the cease
fire—and not, at least at her
initiative, problems of the
longer-range settlement.
Primary among the cease
fire issues is the prisoner of
war question, which seems to
be moving slowly toward so-
lution in Egypt—but not at
all in Syria. Both Mr. Nixon
and Kissinger undertook last
week to press this issue with
the Soviets. There is reason
to believe that what progress
that has been made in Cairo
was through Soviet pressure
on its Egyptian client.
Another important issue is
the continued blockade of
Bab el Mandeb. The complex
problem of the surrounded
3rd Army—over which the
gr t powers had their con-
tion last week—is also
ii —solved and the subject of
differing views in Jerusalem
and Washington.
Mrs. Meir is bringing with
her to the U. S. Gen. Aharon
Yariv, the former head of
military intelligence, who
has been negotiating on cease
fire issues with the Egyptian
military.
Although the war has ne-
cessitated new thinking on
Israel's part, there is still
firm determination not to re-
turn to the pre-1967 lines—and
the premier will voice this
determination.
To date, there are no indi-
cations of Washington itself
adopting a position on the
vexing border question.. The
line there still is that this is

be going pretty badly for
Israel." It was recalled
that it was Fahmi who
flew to Vienna after Mrs.
Meir's unsuccessful visit
there, Fahmi had gone to
congratulate Chancellor
Bruno Kreisky on behalf
of Egypt for his decision
to close the Schoenau
Center for Jews emigrat-
ina from Russia.

(JTA reports that Fahmi,
emerging from the State De-
partment Monday afternoon
after a four-hour "working
lunch" with Kissinger and
Assistant Secretary Joseph J.
Sisco, dodged TV cameras
and reporters' questions as
he raced to his limousine.
But he indicated that peace
negotiations with Israel were
not close at hand.
(Asked by the JTA if he
thought a Middle East peace
was closer than it was when
he arrived in Washington, the
Egyptian diplomat would say
only that he had spoken with
Kissinger "in a constructive
and business way, v e r y
frank." Asked if Egypt would
negotiate directly with Israel,
Fahmireplied; "This process
must take a long time.")
