Begin to present peace plan to Carter

Israeli government approved a
detalled plan yesterday for a
Middle East peace settlement
that Prime Minister Menahem
Begin will present to President
Carter next Tuesday at the
White House.
"I now have a clear mandate
to bring these proposals to the
President," Begin said after his
ministers gave what he said
was unanimous approval to the
plan at a cabinet meeting in
CABINET secretary Arye Neor
said it took one hour to present
the written plan to the minis-
ters, an indication of its length
ad precision.
Begin gave no specifics of
the plan, intended for eventual
presentation to Israel's Arab
neighbors at the Geneva peace
talks, which Begin has said he
is willing to see reconvene aft-
er Oct. 10. The talks adjourned
in 1973, shortly after they be-
The Israeli prime minister
said he wanted to discuss the
plan with Carter before reveal-
ing its provisions.
DESPITE THE official silence
on the plan's details, Arab rec-
ognition of Israel is known to
be one important issue to be
settled. Also likely to be discuss-
ed between Arabs and Israelis
at Geneva are questions of a
Palestinian homeland, Israeli
occupation of Arab territory and
secure borders for the Israeli

ister Moshe Dayan and Defense
Minister Ezer Weizman, includ-

proposals, Neor said. Rather,
he said it is a detailed state-
ment of "ways and means of
achieving peace."
Yasir Arafat's Palestine Lib-
eration Organization (PLO), an
umbrella body covering several
Palestinian guerrilla and politi-
cal action groups, rejected Car-
ter's suggestion Tuesday in
Washington that a Palestinian
homeland should not be inde-
pendent but shouuld be "tied
in" with Jordan.
"WE INSIST on a ten per cent
independent Palestinian state on
every yard of Palestinian soil
freed from Israel by military
action or diplomacy," said PLO
spokesman Mahanoud Labadi.
Egyptian President Anwar Sa-
dat, who has shown little re-
sistance to U.S. peace initia-
tives, was quoted as telling a

U.S. congressional delegation
Wednesday that "clear ties" be-
tween Jordan and a Palestinian
state should be defined before
the Middle East peace confer-
ence reconvenes at Geneva.
Egypt's official Middle East
News Agency said Sadat met
afterwards with Arafat. The ag-
ency said Sadat differs with
Arafat in wanting to settle the
issue of Jordanian-Palestinian
ties before Geneva. -
THE AMERICAN delegation,
which met with Sadat at his
summer residence in Alexan-
dria, included Reps. Lee Hamil-
ton (fl-Itd.); David Obey (Di-
W'is.); Abner Mikva (fl-11.), and
Benjamin Rosenthal (D-N.Y.).
Meanwhile, U.N. Secretary
General Kurt Waldheim said in
Warsaw that a Geneva confer-
ence nsst be well prepared to
avoid failure.
"It is difficult to talk about
preparations when even the
problem of participation hasn't
been solved, not to mention the

agenda," Waldheim said.
"SHOULD THE PLO take part
in the talks and what should
the conference aim for? Until
we have these questions settled
there is no point to convoke a
meeting," Waldheim said at the
end of a four-day visit to Poland.
He then left for Vienna and New
York. The U.N. chief will meet
with Begin in New York on Ju-
ly 22.
Since taking office June 20,
Begin has indicated in public

speeches that Israel will nego-
tiate any issue at Geneva, in-
cluding territorial questions.
However, lie has made clear
that Israel is determined to
keep the occupied West Bank
of the Jordan River, Gaza and
Jerusalem under its control.
He has also indicated willing-
ness to relinquish most of the
occupied Sinai Desert and part
of the Golan Heights. All of
these territories were captured
in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
