Dayan: Israel Will Bargain at Peace Talks from Position of Strength

Download PDF for this date

Defense Minister Moshe Dayan said yesterday that if and when a peace conference takes place, Israel will join from a position of strength because the cease-fire lines of the Yom Kippur War are closer to Cairo and Damascus. The Defense Minister, addressing a plenary session of the Jewish Agency Executive in Jerusalem, said that Israel’s military strength would soon surpass her strength at the outset of the Yom Kippur War. Israel need harbor no feelings of insecurity on the eve of the peace talks where all subjects under dispute will be discussed, he said. He noted that Israel now faces a changed world in which Arab oil threats have to some extent affected its status in the international arena, and suggested that “we adapt ourselves to this new reality.”
