State Department Admits Atherton Mission Failed

WASHINGTON (JTA)
• — The United States
acknowledged this week
that special Ambassador
Alfred Atherton's 12-day ef-
fort to bridge the gaps bet-
ween Israel and Egypt on
the so-called minor issues in
- the American 'draft treaty
text had failed.
,... The State Department's
chief spokesman, Hodding
Carter, indicated that the
next move in the negotia-
tions would be based on all
of the controversial matters
'_._outstanding both within
outside of the treaty
itself.
n announcing that the
U.S. will continue to com-
municate with both parties
through diplomatic chan-
nels on the next steps, Car=
ter ruled out speculation
that because decisions on
the treaty cannot be made

t

.

at a lower level; another
Camp David style summit
meeting is the logical next
step.
At the same time, he in-
dicated that another
summit was in the realm
of possibility when - he re-
called President Carter's
remarks at the Martin
Luther King memorial
ceremonies in Atlanta
two 'weeks ago that a ses-
sion on the foreign minis-
ters level was likely to fol-
low the Atherton mission
and that he would not
hesitate to call another
summit conference if he
felt it was necessary.
Most observers here be-
lieve, however, that a sec-
ond summit would not be
considered unless detailed
agreements were reached
beforehand assuring its
success.
Atherton spent nine days
in Israel and three in Egypt
seeking a resolution of the
Egyptian demands that the
treaty be reviewed within
five years after signing on
the military arrangements
in Sinai and Egypt's refusal
to accept provisions in the
treaty that the treaty with
Israel would supercede
treaties Egypt might have
with other Arab countries.

Israeli-Egyptian treaty

the autonomy plan for the
Palestinian Arabs on the
West Bank and Gaza Strip
was the major issue that
the Atherton mission did
not attempt to resolve. Such
linkage is not incorporated
in the treaty itself but
Egypt made an exchange of
ambassadors with Israel —
which_is incorporated in the
treaty — contingent on im-
plementation of the au-
tonomy plan.
In Jerusalem, Premier
Menahem Begin pledged
that Israel will continue
to _iegotiate for a peace
treaty with Egypt but in-
sisted that his country
was not seeking a sepa-
rate agreement and
hoped to sign treaties
with all of its Arab
neighbors. -
Addressing 350 leaders
from American and Cana-
dian Jewish communities at
the farewell dinner of the
1979 Prime Minister's Is-
rael Bond Conference at the
Knesset, Begin said Israel
never considered the idea of
a separate agreement and
always aspired to widen the
circle of Arab countries with
which it would sign treaties.
But, he asked, "Can any-
one force Syria to come to
the table, can we or Egypt or
even the U.S.? We must be
sure that this peace treaty
does not depend on the
whim of hostile forces."
Begin rejected the argu-
ment that a peace treaty
was only a scrap of paper.
"The will behind the paper
is what is important and
that is why we must
make sure that the agree-
ment with Egypt should not
be conditional . . . . We will
not sign a non-peace agree-
rnenit. We will only sign a
genuine peace agreement,"
he said.
Begin
repeatedly
blamed Egypt for the fai-
lure to reach agreement
so far. He claimed that "If
it hadn't been for the new
Egyptian proposals, we
could have signed the
peace treaty even before
Dec. 17," the deadline
proposed at Camp David.
However, he pledged,
"there will be ups and
downs but we will con-
tinue to negotiate. We are
prepared to negotiate the
outstanding issues."

Poll Supports
Carter Policies
on M.E. Peace

NEW YORK — In the
latest Gallup Poll, 62 per-
cent of the American public
who were polled and said
they were aware of the is-
sues in the Middle East
stated that President Car-
ter is treating both sides
equitably.
Some 11 percent said he
was favoring Israel and 10
percent said he, was favor-
ing Egypt.
The poll stated that
Americans still are sym-
pathetic to Israel by a 3-1
ratio, but 60 percent said Is-
rael is not doing all it should
to achieve peace while 51
percent said the same thing
about Egypt.

Referring to events in
Iran, Begin contended that
the free world was in danger
and described Israel as one
of the few remaining demo-
cratic bastions that was
prepared to fight for liberty.
In London, former Israeli
Foreign Minister Abba
Eban said the Middle East
peace talks could break
down in the nest few weeks
if left in the hands of legal'
experts from Israel, Egypt
and the United States.
Although the former
Foreign Minister still be-
lieved peace would be
achieved, he expressed anx-
iety at the inability to clear
up the final differences,
even though they were only
minor compared with those
already surmounted since
Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat went to Jerusalem.
"This is not a question for
jurists to decide," he told a
Joint Israel Appeal dinner
Saturday night.
Calling on all three
countries to make a new
effort, Eban said the U.S.
should withdraw its

memorandum creating
an "inadmissible link"
between an. Egyptian-
Israeli settlement and ar-
rangements for the West
Bank and Gaza Strip.
Egypt and the U.S.
should show more un-
derstanding for Israel's
"obsession" with sec-
urity.
Israel, he 'added, should
appreciate Egypt's Arab re-
sponsibilities "since all men
of Arab speech are a single
community," and President
Sadat could not "resign
from the Arab and Moslem
family."
