Shultz Urges Direct
Arab-Israel Negotiations

Arlington, Va. (JTA) — Secre-
tary of State George Shultz Sun-
day stressed his commitment to
Israel and urged Arab govern-
ments to agree to direct negotia-
tions with the Jewish state.
"Those who take risks for peace
should know that the United
States will help them defend
themselves," he told some 1,200
persons attending the opening
session of the 26th annual policy
conference of the American-Israel
Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC) in Arlington.
"The U.S. must continue to
support those who seek negotia-
tions and peaceful solutions
against those who promote vio-
lence and oppose peace," he said.
Shultz, who noted that Richard
Murphy, Assistant Secretary of
State for Near Eastern and South
Asian Affairs is now in the Middle
East to explore "practical steps"
towards peace, declared, "But
whatever opportunities may
emerge, no one in the region or
throughout the world can have
the slightest doubt about Ameri-
can policy: Israel's vital interests
will never be compromised, Is-
rael's survival and security will
never be put at risk." -
Shultz, stressing that the U.S.
remains committed to President
Reagan's Sept. 1, 1982 Middle
East peace initiative, said that
anyone can bring any position to
negotiations. He said there is no
shortage of plans in the Middle
East but what was needed was di-
rect, face-to-face negotiations.
"It's not the going-in position, it's
the coming-out position that mat-
ters," he said.
In a related development, it ap-
pears that Israeli Premier Shi-
mon Peres and Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak may
hold a summit meeting next
month. It would be the first direct

contact between the two leaders
since the war in Lebanon began
more than two years ago.
The Israelis apparently are de-
termined to press for a package
deal which would resolve all out-
standing issues between the two
countries.
The summit meeting became a
tentative probablility following
the visit to Cairo last week by
Minister - Without - Portfolio
Ezer Weizman, who has emerged
as one of Peres' closest associates
in the National Unity Cabinet.
Weizman met with Mubarak,
Prime Minister Kamel Hassan
Ali, Foreign Minister Abdel Ismet
Meguid and the Egyptian Defense
Minister. He told reporters in the
Egyptian capital last week that a
summit meeting was "in the
cards" but that a great deal of pre-
paratory work had to be done be-
forehand. He noted pointedly that
on the Israeli side, this work
would be done exclusively by the
Foreign Ministry.
Weizman's trip to Cairo had
been vehemently opposed by
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, the leader of Likud,
partly on the grounds that all dip-
lomatic contacts with Egypt must
be conducted by the Foreign
Ministry.
Israeli reporters who accom-
panied Weizman to Cairo said the
minister pressed the Egyptian de-
fense chief to permit renewed
searches for Israeli soldiers of the
Yom Kippur War still posted mis-
sing in the Suez Canal zone and
for the bodies of Israelis in the sea
off Alexandria.
The latter presumably would be
the 69 crewmembers of the Israeli
submarine Oakar, which van-
ished in the Eastern Mediterra-
nean, possibly in Egyptian
waters, while on her delivery voy-
age from Britain Jan. 25, 1968.

Israel Sinks PLO Ship

Tel Aviv (JTA) — An uniden-
tified vessel preparing to put ter-
rorists ashore in Israel was sunk
by a navy patrol. boat Saturday
night. Of the 28 men aboard the
vessel, 19 are presumed to have
drowned, eight were pulled alive
from the sea and one body was
retrieved.
The survivors reportedly told
interrogators they were members
of Al Fatah, the terrorist arm of
the Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization and had been personally
instructed on their mission by
PLO chief Yassir Arafat's deputy,
Abu Jihad, head of the Al Fatah's
operations division. Their mis-
sion, according to Israeli sources,
was to create carnage in Israel on
the eve of its Independence Day.
Rear Adm. Avraham Ben-
Shushan, commander of the Israel
Navy, told military correspon-
dents in Tel Aviv Monday that the
patrol boat intercepted a 1,000-
ton ship, flying no flag, about 200
kilometers off Tel Aviv Saturday
night. The boat was on what was
described as a "deep water
patrol."
According to Adm. Ben-
Shushan, the unidentified ship
failed to respond to signal rockets

or radio transmissions ordering it
to stop. Instead, it opened fire on
the Navy patrol boat with small
arms and rocket-propelled gre-
nades and attempted evasive ac-
tion. The patrol boat returned the
fire, sinking the hostile vessel.
Premier Shimon Peres told the
Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Se-
curity Committee Monday that
the terrorists had planned three
large-scale attacks in major cities,
taking hostages and killing as
many Israelis as possible. A mili-
tary spokesman said earlier that
the surviving terrorists disclosed
under interrogation that their
"mother ship" carried three units
of six or seven men each to carry
out acts of violence and sabotage.
