Diplomatic sources reported here today that Ambassador Gunnar V. Jarring, the United Nations’ special peace envoy to the Middle East, has decided to move the headquarters of his mission to Geneva but is awaiting agreement by the parties concerned on timing the shift. When replies are received from Egypt, Jordan and Israel, Dr. Jarring is expected to propose a date for resuming his efforts at the new site, the sources said. Since his mission began early this year, Dr. Jarring has maintained headquarters at Nicosia, Cyprus from which he travelled regularly to Jerusalem, Amman and Cairo.
