No Denial That Agreements Ending Mideast War Signed by Israel, Jordan, Egypt

The Foreign Ministry declined yesterday to deny a report by the El Fatah newspaper in Amman, Jordan, that draft agreements on the ending of the Middle East hostilities have been initialed by Israel, Egypt and Jordan. “We cannot comment on everything the Fatah says,” the Ministry spokesman remarked. Israeli sources here informed the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that Israel will not agree to any cease-fire that does not apply to terrorist groups, all of which have flatly turned down the American initiative and the United Nations Security Council resolution of Nov. 22, 1967, on which the plan is based. The sources noted that the Amman government, in accepting the U.S. plan, said it “cannot be responsible for the actions of the Palestinian organizations.”
