Shultz, Soviet Counterpart to Discuss Mideast Conference: Beilin

U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz and Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze will meet in mid-July in the U.S. Their discussion will include promoting an international peace conference on the Middle East, according to Foreign Ministry Political Director-General Yossi Beilin, who returned from the U.S. and Europe Wednesday.

In addition, Davar quotes State Department officials as saying Monday that the U.S. sees no chance for implementing an interim agreement between Israel and Jordan that was suggested last week by Ministerial Economist Coordinator Gad Yaacobi in his meeting with Assistant Secretary of State Richard Murphy.
