Sadat and Carter Complete Discussions

President Carter and '
President Anwar Sadat of
Egypt completed their dis-
cussions Wednesday, after
four meetings in 24 hours,
without indicating publicly
what proposals on the au-
tonomy negotiations will be
made to Israeli Premier
Menahem Begin. when he
comes here next week for
the second round of Carter's
dual summit talks.
At a White House dinner
for Sadat Tuesday night and
in their remarks to report-
s Wednesday morning fol-
owing their final session,
the two' leaders spoke of
"full autonomy" for the
Palestinians and the essen-
tiality of a "comprehensive"
settlement in the Middle
East. But Carter said, "No
decision could be reached
because Israel must be con-
sulted as well." He said that
Begin has been kept in-
formed of the discussions
and will be provided with a
"full report" following
Sadat's departure. The
President added that Sadat,
in turn, will be kept fully
informed of his discussions
with the Israeli leader next
Although he did not indi-
cate what transpired in his
talks with Sadat, Carter
said, "We have had, per-
haps, the most far-reaching
discussions these last two
days in my _experience as
President concerning the
many issues that affect our
two nations." He said the
meetings were "a good
exploratory opportunity for
us" to "detect differences be-
tween us (the U.S.) and the
people of Egypt." He did not
Neither Carter nor
Sadat referred, in their
public statements, to
substantive issues dis-
cussed or likely to come
up in the autonomy
negotiations, such as the
status of Jerusalem, Is-
rael's security needs or a
Palestinian state, the lat-
ter officially opposed by
the U.S. as well as by Is-


the resolution of the prob-
lem of the Palestinian refu-
In his response, Sadat
said, "If a comprehensive
settlement was a necessity
at the time we began our
endegror, it is an absolute
must today." He declared,
"We must spare no effort in
our concerted drive to effect
a genuine change in the
West Bank and Gaza. A real
transfer of authority must
take place and a new era of
reconciliation should begin.
This would be in the inter-
ests of all nations, not the
Palestinian people alone."
The Egyptian leader
added, "No one benefits
from the continuation of
occupation and the per-
petuation of conflict. No
one profits from the esca-
lation of tension and the
deepening of suspicion
and distrust among those
who live in the same

Addressing reporters in
the White House Rose Gar-
den on Wednesday, Carter
spoke of elements "spelled
out so plainly and specifi-
cally in the Camp David ac-
cords" including "realiza-
tion" of security for Egypt,
"recognition of sovereign
rights," Israel's "security
within recognized borders,
recognition of Palestinian
rights" and "recognition
that the Palestinians must
have a voice in the determi-
nation of their own future."
Sadat, in his parting
comments, said, "At this
moment there are lots of
difficulties and new de-
velopments in the area
where we live — namely
Afghanistan, Iran, the
threat to the Persian Gulf—
all this, in my view, should
enhance the efforts for find-
ing an agreement of full au-
tonomy for the Palesti-
nians" as set forth in the
Camp David agreements.
Sadat emphasized that
the "Palestinian question is
the core and crux of the
whole problem in the Mid-
dle East and the Arab-
Israeli conflict." He credited

The settlers demanded
that Burg's National Reli-

ernment if the proposal for a
"Gaza first" autonomy were
adopted. But Burg rejected
their demand.
Earlier he predicted a
breakthrough will be
achieved by the target date
of May 26, at least on some
of the substantive issues
that have been unresolved
until now.

According to Burg, an
achievement of significant
importance could be
reached by May 26 on elec-

structure of the self-

council for the West Bank
and Gaza Strip.
He conceded, however,
that he saw no possibility of
progress on the major is-
sues: the scope of the ad-
ministrative council's
authority, security and the
question of East Jerusalem.
But he Said he opposed a
freeze on settlements for the
duration of the autonomy
talks which has been pro-
posed by the U.S.

cials made it clear today
