Egyptian Premier Stresses Rejection of High Level Talks

Egyptian Premier Gamal Abdel Nassar, speaking at Facum on the situation on the Gaza strip border, stressed the fact that although talks are now going on between Israel and Egyptian representatives in the Gaza area, they are not high-level talks.

He emphasized that Egypt had rejected all proposals for high level talks with Israel. He also asserted that Egypt’s army is stronger than Israel’s. “No one,” he said, “will say that Israel forced Egypt to accept negotiations. Talks have begun near Gaza under the auspices of the United Nations truce chief, but I feel from the preliminaries, that there are those who help and encourage Israel.”
