U.N. Leaders Favor Establishment of Buffer Between Israel, Egypt

The topmost leadership of the General Assembly here is interested in preventing the status quo ante from being established again along the Israel-Arab borders. This was stated today by one of the highest authorities in the Assembly.

Plans contemplated now include these steps: 1. Israel is to complete its troop withdrawals from Egyptian territory by Feb. 15; 2. The United Nations Emergency Force is to establish itself as a buffer between Israel and Egypt; 3. The General Assembly, instead of adjourning sine die by the end of this month, is to take a recess until about the middle of May; 4. By that time the Assembly is to reconvene, and tackle substantive measures for genuine peace in the Middle East.
