He said Egypt was demanding that it be re-drafted into an “Egyptian plan.” The Israeli plan Kissinger brought with him was not satisfactory,” Fahmy told a news conference near the end of a day of negotiations between Kissinger and Egyptian leaders including President Anwar Sadat. Fahmy said Kissinger was returning to Israel Monday night “with an Egyptian plan and an Egyptian map on disengagement with Israel” along the Suez Canal. Earlier, both Kissinger and Fahmy had expressed optimism about the pullback talks. “Your secretary of state, when he sticks his fingers in something, he generally brings it to a successful conclusion.” Fahmy told newsmen “And I think he will this time.” Sitting on a sunlit veranda at I -Aswan in upper Egypt, Kissinger told the newsmen that his shuttling mediation talks with Egyptians and Israelis are “the toughest I have been in.” Joint Teams He and Sadat set up joint WASHINGTON (AP) — The hancement of First Amendment teams of draftsmen to work on .supreme court Monday agreed values for all citizens at a time Simon: (7.S, Requires Law To Gain Oil Data Report to Maryland High Court Watering Hole The bar of the Royal hotel in Wee Waa, Australia, 374 miles northwest of Sydney, became a real watering hole Sunday, when floodwaters could not be held back.
