Israeli, Lebanese Army Officers Resume Talks at Border Post

Israeli and Lebanese army officers resumed their talks at the Rosh Hanikra border post today on the status of the cease-fire agreement in south Lebanon and related matters. The meeting was the first since the talks were suspended by Israel three weeks ago in protest against cease-fire violations by Palestinian terrorists.

The Lebanese team consisting of two colonels and two majors was flown to Haifa Airport in a United Nations aircraft and driven from there to Rosh Hanikra. They could not reach the border post directly from Beirut because the coast road is blocked by terrorists.

The two-hour meeting was held behind closed doors and no information was divulged. Israel is known to be seeking withdrawal of the Palestinians from their present advance positions, continuation of the open fence link on the Israeli-Lebanese border and guarantees of the well-being of the Christian population in south Lebanon.
