Kreisky Forsees Israel Recognizing PLO

(JTA) — Austrian Chancel-
lor Bruno Kreisky declared
Monday at the UN that
"Only negotiations and
agreements between the
Palestinians and the Is-
raelis, on the basis of their
mutual recognition, will
lead to results. Without this
eadiness to negotiate and
le will to achieve agree-
ment, there will be no
peace" in the Mideast.
In his address to the Gen-
eral Assembly, the Aust-
rian leader predicted that
soon most, if not all gov-
ernments in the world will
recognize the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization as the
representative of the Pales-
tinians. Once this happens,
he said, the Palestinian
side would have to acknowl-
edge as a reality the exist-
ence of the state of Israel
and Israel would have to ac-
knowledge as legitimate the
national rights of the Pales-
He added, "It is only at
that stage that in my opin-
ion the moment for first
exploratory talks will have
to come."
Later, in a press con-
ference at the UN,
Kreisky reiterated the
same ideas. He said his
"impression" from the
talks he held with PLO
leader Yasir Arafat last
July was that "there is a
fair chance" that the PLO
will agree to recognize Is-
rael in return for Israeli
recognition of the PLO.
As for the Camp David
accords and the Israeli-
Egyptian peace treaty,.
Kreisky said, This peace
remains an historic
achievement of President
Anwar Sadat" of Egypt. He
did not mention Israel's part
in reaching the agreement.
Israel's Ambassador
Yehuda Blum, in a brief
statement issued after
Kreisky's address to the As-
sembly, said the chancellor
"manifested his partiality
again today in referring to
the Egyptian-Israeli peace
treaty as an exclusive
achievement of President
Sadat." Therefore, Blum
said, the Israel Mission sees
"no need to comment" on

Kreisky's UN statement.
In his press conference,
Kreisky said he keeps con-
tacts with both parties, the
Israelis and the Palesti-
nians. But, in reply to a
question, he said he does not
have contacts with Israeli
government officials.
On Wednesday, in Lis-
bon, Portugal, the Bureau of
the Socialist International
empowered its president,
former West German Chan-
cellor Willy Brandt, and its
vice president, Austrian
Chancellor Bruno Kreisky,
to continue maintaining
"contacts" with the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion. The Bureau, on which
20 socialist parties are re-
presented, did not consider,
however, granting the PLO
any official status as an ob-
server or in any other
capacity. Israeli Labor
Party chairman Shimon
Peres said after the two-day
session that he was "satis-
fied" with the results.
Brandt told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that
practically all the delega-
tions supported "the
principle" of his and
Kreisky's meeting with
Arafat last July in Vie-
nna. The only delegations
which objected, said
Brandt and Kreisky,
were the Israelis and that
of Ireland. The Dutch and
several others objected to
the way in which the
meeting was arranged
and its form.
Israeli sources said the
bureau has promised that
any future contacts with the
PLO will take place only
after Israel would have been
given due notice in advance.
Both Brandt and Kreisky
said the PLO has not
applied for observer status
nor are there any plans for
further contacts with
Arafat or any of its other
representatives. Socialist
sources said the PLO "has
not applied because they
know that their application
would not stand a chance to
be granted."
Brandt told the confer-
ence that both he and
Kreisky "are convinced that
the Palestinians now want
self-determination without
the elimination or destruc-
tion of the state of Israel."
Brandt said that in his view,
"The two sides (Israel and
the PLO) will have to take
each other into considera-
tion" if a comprehensive
peace agreement is to be
reached. He added that "the
peace process is impossible
without PLO participa-
Peres said, "My dif-
ferences with Brandt and
Kreisky are mainly on a
question of grammar:
they speak, hopefully,
about the future — we
speak about the present."
He said, "What realty
matters is not the assur-

recognized the rights of the
