from the government to
develop Arab settlements
and villages. He urged
them to forget the con-
troversial Koenig report
and get on with the job of
developing and improv-

who had demanded the

however, over Israel's
charges that the Egyp-
tians have more battal-
ions in the limited forces
zone than authorized
under the interim accord.
