Kissinger to Give Disengagement Details to Congressional Leaders

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger will inform Congressional leaders of both Houses tomorrow at the White House about details of the Israeli-Egyptian disengagement agreements, the White House announced. Unofficial reports here said that the Israeli pull-back to the passes in the Sinai may give Saudi Arabia sufficient reason to drop its oil embargo without lowering its vastly increased prives for its oil.

Meanwhile, the State Department steadfastly refused to give any details of the Egyptian-Israeli agreement or reported “understandings” between, the principal parties and the U.S. The Department was pressed by newsmen to give reasons why the negotiations conducted by Kissinger have not been disclosed and why the American public is not informed on how far the U.S. government is committed to the agreement which Kissinger is generally hailed with having formulated, but termed here in some quarters as “the American proposal.”
