CAIRO, Egypt (UPI) - Egypt
received a crucial letter from Israel on
the Jerusalem crisis yesterday but a
high-ranking official indicated that he
was not happy with its contents and that
the Palestinian autonomy talks would
not immediately resume. -
The 15-page letter from Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin to Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat was delivered
to Vice President Hosni Mobarak by
Israeli Ambassador Eliahu Ben-Elis-
SADAT, WHO suspended the
Palestinian autonomy negotiations last
weekend for the third time in three
months, had said no decision to resume
the talks would be taken until he

making it part of an "indivisible and
eternal" national capital. Egypt argues
this move prejudges the issue and
removes it from the Palestine
autonomy negotiations where Sadat
believes it belongs.
Israeli officials and news reports ha-
ve quoted Begin's message as saying
Egypt was free to raise the Jerusalem
issue in negotiations but Israel will not
budge from its position.
Cairo newspapers quoted Foreign
Ministr Kamal Hassan Alias saying the
14-month-old autonomy talks, in which
the United States is a partner, will
remain suspended until Israel changes
its position on Jerusalem.
Mobarak said he did not read the
whole letter during the meeting with
Ben-Elissar but did discuss its main
