Mubarak In Washington
Pushing His 10 Points

WOLF BLITZER

Washington Correspondent

V

isiting Egyptian Pres-
ident Hosni Mubarak
emerged Monday from
a White House meeting with
President George Bush to
express conditional support
for Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir's peace initiative.
"My 10 points are not an
initiative," Mubarak told
reporters. "The initiative is
Mr. Shamir's. We agree to it,
but we need some explana-
tion. That's why we said 10
points — just to explain
them."
Mubarak, who went from
the White House to a
separate working luncheon
with Secretary of State
James Baker, said that an
Israeli-Palestinian dialogue
with no preconditions was
the immediate objective of
both the United States and
Egypt.
But the Egyptian leader
hedged in his willingness to
hold a preliminary summit
meeting with Shamir.
Mubarak telephoned Shamir
just before Rosh Hashanah
to extend New Year's
greetings.
"I have no set date to meet
with Mr. Shamir," Mubarak
said. "But such a meeting
should come out to
something. Otherwise, it
will have a negative reaction
on the peoples of both sides."
Following the Mubarak-
Bush meeting, Baker ex-
pressed hope that Israel's
Cabinet would remain com-
mitted to the Shamir in-
itiative. The Shamir plan,
Baker said, "points the
way."
"No one wants peace more
than Israel," Baker said.
"That's a point that they
make in all of these discus-
sions, and one that I think
most everyone accepts."
Baker confirmed that
Israel, Egypt and the United
States could meet "in some
way to determine the
Palestinian representation"
in negotiations. "That
_would, of course, give Israel
a chop on the representation
of the people in the occupied
territories [who] would be
representing the Palesti-
nians.
"We see the Mubarak 10
points as a means of permit-
ting a dialogue to get started
which would enable us to
move forward with the
Shamir elections proposal,
and I, frankly, believe that

that's the way that the
Egyptian government views
this as well,"Baker added.
Baker said he did not know
whether PLO Chairman
Yassir Arafat has endorsed
the Egyptian 10 points. "I
don't have any evidence that
he agrees or disagrees," he
said.
Mubarak said Bush was
"quite determined to pursue

Hosni Mubarak: Golden
opportunity.

the active role which has
enabled the parties to make
tangible progress in recent
months.
"Today," the Egyptian
added, "we believe that the
potential is great for further
progress. I'm by nature very
hopeful. Pray to God with
me.
"It would be a grave
mistake to miss the golden
opportunity [that]exists to-
day," he said. "The con-
tinuation of the status quo is
hazardous to both parties."
Mubarak said he would
like "Palestinians from in-
side and outside" the ter-
ritories to participate in
talks with Israel "because
that is the only guarantee
for the dialogue to go on. We
shouldn't fear Palestinians
that come in from outside.
I'm telling you very frankly
and sincerely." El

'75 U.N. Vote
'Not Anti-Zionist'

Washington (JTA) — The
senior Soviet official dealing
with human rights questions
maintained last week that
the United Nations General
Assembly's 1975 resolution
equating Zionism with
racism was neither an anti-
Zionist nor anti-Semitic act.
"I cannot believe that the
majority of states" that
voted for the 1975 resolution
"condemned Zionism," said
