Jewish and Austrian Government teams of experts negotiating legislative measures and administrative procedures concerning Jewish claims against Austria had reached today what some of the experts called a “very delicate” stage in their talks.

An Austrian Government spokesman said the negotiations are “making very rapid progress,” but some of the experts seemed not over-optimistic about early conclusion of the talks that have dragged on for two years.
