Arbitration Panel Holding Final Session on Taba Dispute

Download PDF for this date

A panel of international arbitrators convened here Monday to conclude their deliberations over Taba, the Red Sea beachfront strip claimed by both Israel and Egypt.

The five arbitrators opened a final session to formulate their judgment on the dispute, known as an award. It will be binding on Israel and Egypt, unless the two nations first reach a separate compromise on the matter. Conciliation talks in Cairo earlier this month failed to produce a compromise.

Barring no further delay, the judges are scheduled to hand down their award Sept. 29 or 30.
