Sadat Mourns 'Lost 16 Months' of Negotiations

nine weeks, serve as the site
of any future negotiations

parties that want to talk
peace with her.
President Anwar Sadat
made the proposal at a news
conference he gave at the
Egyptian Embassy in
Washington last week for
Israeli and Egyptian jour-
• nalists.
Sadat mourned the "lost
16 months" that had
elapsed between his visit to
Jerusalem and the signing
of the peace treaty. "If ev-
erything had gone on in the
spirit of my initiative," he
said, "we could have had an
Israeli ambassador in Cairo
and an Egyptian ambas-
sador in Tel Aviv months
ago . ."

response to a question,
on his feeling about Pre-
mier Menahem Begin's
handling of the peace
negotiations. Sadat was
careful to avoid any more
direct or pointed criti-
cism than that of the Is-
raeli leader.
Noting that this was his
first appearance on Israeli
television, Sadat said he
wanted to take the opportu-
nity once again to -praise
"my ally, the Israeli
mothers" for their role in
making the peace possible.
"I salute the Israeli
mother," he said smilingly.
Pressed on the Palesti-
nian question, Sadat
warned that it was "the crux
and core Of the conflict" and
that without its solution
there would be no "perma-
nent and comprehensive
peace" in the area. But he
sidestepped saying specifi-
cally that Egypt demanded
the creation of a Palestinian
state.
"What I want Israeli pub-
lic opinion to know," Sadat
said, "is that Egypt always
has certain responsibilities,
certain commitments to its
Arab colleagues" = what-
ever those "colleagues"
were presently saying. The
Camp David "framework
for peace" was "the proper
channel to start with in
solving the Palestinian
problem," he said.
"What I am asking is

ask you to rejoice with them
in the blessings for a

this: the Palestinians
should determine their
own future. I can't speak
for them; they should
speak for themselves. Let
us start with the full au-
tonomy. According to the
Camp David framework,
after a few years we will
sit with the Palestinians"
and negotiate the perma-
nent status of the West
Bank and Gaza Strip,
Sadat noted.
Despite the Palestine
Liberation Organization's
present recalcitrance and
terrorism Sadat said, Is-
raelis should realize that
"these people are desperate,
since they were ill-treated."
This did not mean, he
stressed, that he agreed
with the PLO's "views" or
with its actions. There
"should come a time," he
said, when Israel would be
able to sit down and talk
with the PLO.

Sadat disclosed that the
Soviet Union proposed in
1972 that he meet with
then-Premier Golda Meir at
Tashkent. "Would they
have attacked me if I had
agreed to meet her then?"
Sadat asked, vigorously re-
butting Soviet criticism of
his present peace initiative.
He said that "for sure the
late Mrs. Meir would have
tried to translate our defeat
in the Six-Day War into a
_ treaty then," thus appear-
i ng to confirm the thesis
that Egypt spurned direct
peace contacts before 1973
because it felt that any
negotiations would be
engaged in an hour of
weakness.
Sadat told reporters
that Jerusalem should be
ruled by a combined
council of Israelis and
Arabs and should never
be divided again. He said
that at the Camp David
summit -meeting with
Begin and President Car-
ter, "I agreed that
Jerusalem shall not be
divided again by barbed
wire. But this shall not
cancel Moslem rights, the
rights of 700 million Mos-
lems. Sovereignty in
Arab Jerusalem should
return" to the Arab popu-
lation.

Strike Hampers
Israel Airport

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A
strike by ground personnel
paralyzed Ben-Gurion Air-
port for four hours Sunday,
stranding more than 1,000
passengers and delaying
the departure of the Israeli
advance party and press
planes for Cairo which
Premier Menahem Begin
visited.

The wildcat strike was
called to protest a court
order enjoining the workers
committee not to call a
strike in support of wage
demands, Special permis-
sion was finally granted for
the official planes to take off
for Cairo.
When the strike was fi-
nally called off, the flights
ol took off in rapid succession.
