Waldheim Trip Due Before UN Assembly Convenes in Sept.

A UN spokesman said today that Secretary General Kurt Waldheim’s trip to the Middle East will take place before the General Assembly convenes in Sept. The spokesman said, however, that no date has been set. He denied reports that Waldheim has postponed the trip, observing that since no date has been announced there could be no postponement.

No date has been announced for resumption of the Security Council’s general debate on the Middle East. Some sources here said the Security Council would reconvene this Friday but there was no confirmation from UN sources.

The Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed H. el-Zayyat, returned to New York last night and will meet tonight with members of the non-aligned group of nations. Israeli Ambassador Yosef Tekoah will meet with Secretary General Waldheim this afternoon. The meeting is a Tekoah’s request.
