Vance-Dayan-Khalil Meeting May Lead to New Peace Negotiations

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan is expected to meet
Saturday with Egyptian
Premier Mustapha Khalil
in Europe, probably in
Brussels. This was reported
by Israel Radio Wednesday
night and was not denied by
Israeli officials.
Dayan left earlier Wed-
nesday for Brussels to hold
meetings with the EEC-
Israel joint economic com-
mission which he co-chairs
with West Germany's
Hans-Dietrich Genscher.
The Dayan-Khalil meet-
ing was initiated by U.S.
secretary of State Cyrus
Vance and, according to Is-
raeli sources, Vance himself
is to participate in it.

The sources said the
Dayan-Khalil talk will be
about ways to get peace
negotiations started
again.

Observers noted that
Dayan's speech to the Knes-
set, winding up its lengthy
political debate Tuesday
night, had been a good deal
more optimistic than a
statement he made to the
house six hours earlier, at
the start of the debate.
In his closing speech
Dayan said it would be
wrong to conclude that the
deadlock spelled the end of
the treaty talks with Egypt.
He emphasized Israel's
willingness to negotiate
further on the letter which
is to regulate procedures for
the creation of the West
Bank/Gaza autonomy.

The Knesset demon-
strated overwhelming
support for the Israeli
government's rejection of
Egypt's latest peace
treaty demands and what

The abstentions were by
the Labor Alignment which
expressed reservations over
the autonomy plan for the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
But Shimon Peres, chair-
man of the Labor Party,
stressed that it backed
Begin in resisting U.S. and
Egyptian "pressure."
Dayan said it would be
pointless for Israel to reject
all of Egypt's demands and
then do nothing. He said it
was possible that the peace
talks will be resumed, not-
ing that Israel, for its part,
has informed Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance that it is
willing to negotiate further
over the proposed "side let-
ter" to the treaty on ar-
rangements for Palestinian
autonomy.

it termed "unjust and
one-sided" American
support of the Egyptian
position. A government
motion to that effect was
adopted Tuesday night
by a vote of 66-7 following
a seven-hour debate dur-
ing which both coalition
and opposition faCtions
endorsed Premier
Menahem Begin's stance.
There were 27 absten-
tions and 21 members
were absent or did not
participate in the voting.

The motion accused
Egypt of advancing "new
tough demands which pre-
vented the signing of the
peace treaty" and said the
U.S. position "does not con-
tribute to the advancement
of peace." The motion
stated, "Israel wants peace
and has made many sac-
rifices for peace. It will con-
tinue to act to achieve peace
but it cannot accept pro-
posals that put its welfare
and security in jeopardy."

Meanwhile, Dayan
said, Israel could act
along other lines. He said
it could seek ways of
starting talks with other
Arab parties, seek ways
to give the Palestinians

greater independence on
a unilateral basis, exam-
ine the "frameworks in
which Israelis and West
Bankers jointly bene-
fited, such as common
water sources," and
strengthen Israeli set-
tlements "so as to demon-
strate the Israel will not
be pushed out of the West
Bank."

Premier Menahem Begin
defended Israel's unqual-
ified opposition to the latest
Egyptian proposals in an
impassioned speech, flatly
rejecting U.S. pressure on
Israel to east its stand and
called on Americans to rec-
ognize that Israel is an im-
portant factor in the "West-
ern world and should not be
weakened." He stressed
"the mutual aid between
the two countries."
Declaring that blame for
suspension of the peace
talks lays entirely with "the
other side," Begin insisted
that Israel was ready to sign

the draft treaty as origi-
nally approved but would
not sign a peace treaty that
would become void of its
original content by the in-
terpretations attached to it.
Dayan charged in his
opening statement that the
Egyptians retreated from
their main contribution to
the treaty — the normaliza-
tion of relations with Israel.

Begin referred at
length to the controver-
sial issues such as
Egypt's demand to alter
Article VI, the "priority
of agreements" clauses,
its proposal to subject the
treaty to re-examination
after five years and its re-
fusal to implement the
exchange of ambas-
sadors with Israel until
the autonomy plan for
the West Bank and Gaza
Strip is implemented. He
charged that these de-
mands violated the Camp
David agreements and
sought to impose Egyp-

tian guardianship over
the Gaza Strip, not
envisaged in the Camp
David accords.
