Dr. Jarring Will Resume His Mission Soon, Israeli Sources Report

Dr. Gunnar Jarring, the special United Nations envoy for the Middle East, whose mission has been suspended for months during Big Four talks at the UN on the Middle East, may resume his mission soon, informed sources here said.

The sources said the major powers may be interested in bringing Dr. Jarring back to his assignment to bridge the hiatus in the Four Power talks which have been adjourned for the summer and an impasse in the U.S.-Soviet bilateral talks. The sources emphasized that while Dr. Jarring took an indefinite recess from the Middle East problems, the major powers appeared to be interested in reviving his mission, if only as a gesture.
