FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1989

ecretary of State
James Baker and his
closest aides were this
week convinced that a
strong new diplomatic
momentum could result
from the next round of
U.S.-Israeli-Egyptian for-
eign ministerial talks in
Washington, talks that
would make it increasingly
more difficult for either
Israel or the Palestinians to
walk away from the peace
process.
State Department
spokesman Richard Boucher
insists that Baker will re-
main personally engaged in
the process.
The Americans have clear-
ly been encouraged by
Egypt's acceptance "in prin-
ciple" of Baker's five-point
framework for achieving an
Israeli-Palestinian dialogue
in Cairo. They acknowledge,
however, that many serious
differences between the
Israeli and Egyptian
governments remain
unresolved, including the
selection of Palestinians for
those talks and the scope of
the agenda.
Baker is expected to meet
in January in Washington
with Israeli Foreign Min-
ister Moshe Arens and his
Egyptian counterpart,
Esmat Abdel-Meguid. The
three-way session is design-
ed to set the stage for the
start of Israeli-Palestinian
talks in Cairo.
Boucher made clear that
the U.S. dialogue with the
PLO in Tunis will continue
at the same time.
Like other U.S. officials,
Boucher again noted that
the qualified acceptance by
Israel and Egypt of Baker's
five-point plan was but an
initial step on the road to an
Israeli-Palestinian dialogue.
Margartet Tutwiler, the
State Department
spokeswoman, refused to
spell out the exact Egyptian
and Israeli reservations.
Other U.S. officials said
there was reason to assume
that the PLO had quietly
"signed off" on the Egyptian
reply, although Tutwiler
maintained that the U.S.
was dealing on this matter
only with Egypt.
She conceded, however,
that "it is quite obvious"
that Egypt has been talking
to the PLO.
Prime Minister Yitzhak

Shamir and other Likud
ministers have steadfastly
maintained that Israel will
not negotiate even indirectly
with the PLO.
Boucher also called on
Israel to take another look at
its decision banning Palesti-
nian activist Faisal Husseini
from visiting the West Bank
and Gaza for the next six
months. Husseini lives in
east Jerusalem.
In announcing the Egyp-
tian decision earlier last

Due in Washington.

week, the State Department
also publicly released for the
first time the full text of
Baker's five-point proposal:
"1. The United States
understands that because
Egypt and Israel have been
working hard on the peace
process, there is agreement
that an Israeli delegation
should conduct a dialogue
with a Palestinian delega-
tion in Cairo.
"2. The United States
understands that Egypt
cannot substitute itself for
the Palestinians and Egypt
will consult with Palesti-
nians on all aspects of that
dialogue. Egypt will also
consult with Israel and the
United States.
"3. The United States
understands that Israel will
attend the dialogue only
after a satisfactory list of
Palestinians has been work-
ed out.
"4. The United States
understands that the
government of Israel will
come to the dialogue on the
basis of the Israeli govern-
ment's May 14 initiative.
The United States further
understands that Palesti-
nians will come to the dia-
logue prepared to discuss
elections and the
