The timetable for implementing the Israeli-Egyptian Sinai accord was disclosed today by a military spokesman. He said that Oct. 22 was the date set for the first meeting of the joint Israeli-Egyptian military committee set up by the accord to oversee its implementation. It was reported unofficially that the first ship with an Israeli cargo would transit the Suez Canal on that date from north to south.

The timetable is as follows: November 11–Israeli forces evacuate the Ras Sudar region and oil fields on the eastern shores of the Gulf of Suez: November 16–Egyptians enter the Ras Sudar area; November 24–Italian technicians take over the Abu Rodeis oil fields; November 30–Israel evacuates the entire “oil corridor” between Ras Sudar and Abu Rodeis; December 1–Egyptians enter the oil corridor; December 28–Egyptian engineering corps enter the Gidi Pass to build a surveillance station there.
