The occurrence of a possible military outbreak and the start of war talks in the Middle East are addressed. Egyptian President Anwar Sadat has not given in to Arab pressures to call off his peace initiative despite the refusal of the Israeli government to say that it will ever countenance Arab sovereignty over the West Bank. Meanwhile, the administration of U.S. President Jimmy Carter expects the counter-proposal to lead to resumed political negotiations between Israel and Egypt.
