Kissinger] It was their second meeting at the Stale Department in two days. Kissinger called the talks "very constructive and very useful" and said he remains about (he prospecls tor an agreement in Geneva between Egypt and Israel. The secretary indicated that differences beiween the U.S. and Israeli positions have narrowed. '.'As far as the U.S. govern- ment is he said, "ive consider tlie (alts ex- tremely helpful and we are hopeful that progress will be able to be made in Geneva." In discussing disengage- ment, Dayan was principally concerned with ttie ''mutual commitments" that could be expected from Egypt in return for a sizable Israeli withdraw! from the canal. Neither he nor Kissinger dis- closed to newsmen the sub- stance of their conversation on this and related points, al- though Kissinger said he un- derstood the Egyptian position on disengagement "very.well" and altempted to present if "as fairly as i could."

Kis- singer first met with Dayan alone for about an hour in his seventh flour office. Their first session, on Friday, lasted three hours. Asked when Israel would be ready lo make its proposal at Geneva, Dayan replied, "I don't know. don't think it will take a long lime. now we arc already in a ixisilion lo make up our minds." 'llie Geneva talks have been largely in an exploratory phase, awaiting the outcome of the Israeli eleclions held Dec. 31 and Dayan's mission lo Washington. Now, the conference appar- ently will move into a stage of concrete bargaining, begin- ning with a specific Israeli proposal to separate Egyptian and Israeli canal. forces along (lie In return, Israel is likely (o seek an opening of the canal to shipping and a "thinning out'', of Kgyplia'n forces on the east bank. Also, a buffer zone manned by United Nations forces may he set up between the separated armies. Kissinger said Dayan had presented the views of (he Is- raeli government "willi his characteristic lucidity and vig- or." Kissinger said he present- ed -some of our mvii ideas" and that Ihc process of the last few days llie two positions. have approached each other very substantially." The secretary said liis role remained one of helping Israel and. Egypt (a reach positions "which both sides can accept because Kiev reflect (lie just aspirations of both sides." iDayan said "e v o r y b o d should that after such a long time of hostility "and fighting and bitter confronta- tion beiween the Egyptians and ourselves it is very diffi- cult lo make even the first step toward an agreement, but I Impe we are in a [iqsilion to achieve such a step."
