Labor's Shimon Peres, left, and Likud's Moshe Arens and Yitzhak Shamir: Slowly!moving towards a national

ortfolio fight slows.
nity - , government

Labor and Likud
appear to have
settled major policy
differences, but
continue to spar
over Cabinet
positions.

Jerusalem (JTA) — Premier
Yitzhak Shamir and Premier-
designate Shimon Peres have de-
cided to hold "several More" private
meetings in the quest for a unity gov-
ernment.
The two men announced their
- intention to • extend their dialogue
into several more sessions after their
meetings this week at the King

David Hotel. They described thei r
more than two-hour meeting Monda
night as positive, but both noted tha t
while policy matters were nearin
resolution, issues of the "compositio n
and structure" of a unity governmen t
still presented, in Peres' words, " a
long line of problems to be overcome.'
Neither Shamir nor Peres would
give details, but other sources spok e
of agreed formulas on the question o

that the two men have agreed to a
Cabinet of -24 ministers -- 12 from
each side, with each side entitled to
replace its own people with people
from its allied factions.
On the premiership, Likud's
formal position is still to demand ro-
tation, but privately Likud leaders
have indicated they would drop that
if their party could have both the
Foreign and Defense portfolios in-
stead.
Labor; however, is insistent on
keeping Defense (Yitzhak Rabin is
its candidate for the spot) and is offer-
ing Foreign and Finance instead.
But Likud, like Labor, is not
especially anxious to have Finance —
in view of the drastic austerity meas-
ures that will be required of the next
Finance Minister, whoever he may
be.
Meanwhile, Labor negotiators
have clearly not given up hope of
