Swiss, PLO Foreign Minisers Meet

Farouk Kaddoumi, a ranking official of the Palestine Liberation Organization, was received in Bern Friday by President Pierre Aubert of Switzerland, the acting Foreign Minister. They have met twice before, in Tunis in 1985 and in Bern in 1981.

A Foreign Ministry spokesman said Friday’s meeting was an exchange of views of the situation in the Middle East. Kaddoumi, who heads the PLO’s foreign relations bureau, held a press conference afterwards at the United Nations office in Geneva. He expressed “doubts that Israel wants a real international conference for peace in the Middle East.”
