Dmc, Likud Talks Resume

Negotiations between the Democratic Movement for Change (DMC) and Likud were resumed this morning. A team of six representatives from each side reviewed all the issues that were taken up the past two weeks during informal talks between DMC leader Yigael Yadin, Likud and the National Religious Party leaders. It now appears certain the DMC will not join the government coalition before Premier Menachem Begin visits Washington July 19-20. The negotiations will apparently take some time and Begin is unable to participate in them since he is busy with preparations for his Washington visit.
