Henry A Kissinger upon arrival in Egypt calls for scru pulous observance of the cease fire from the moment it is sign ed Friday All wounded prisoners are to beexchanged within 24 hours of the signing ceremony in Geneva The agreement also sets out a precise timetable for carrying out disengagement steps The text of the agreement was disclosed aboard Kissingers plane as the secretary flew to Cairo from Israel to report Egyptian President Anwar el Sadat oh the agreement before returning night to Washington to A detailed map of the separa tion of forces lines for the Golan Heights also was releaseiby the State Department The agreement provides that a combined Egyptian Israeli Syrian working1 group under the aegis of the United Nations begin work within 24 hours on a plan for carrying out the disen gagement The joint working group is to complete this plan and a final delineation of the new military map of the region within five days Disengagement is to begin within 24 hours of completion of this task which would be no later than next Friday and the process is to be completed within 20 days after physical disengagement is begun Essentially this means a withdrawal by Israeli forces fromtheir forward positions to new lines to the rear of where they now are dug in While wounded Israeli and1 Syrian prisoners of war are to be repatriated by Saturday the remaining prisoners will not be exchanged until after the military working group com pletes its first task on Wednes day The bodies of dead soldiers on either side are to be returned within 10 days of the signing of the

buffer zone A senior U S official said during Kissingers flight to Cairo that these details are stipulated in one of the secret protocols that the U S has concluded with each side The agreement overall re quires thatIsraelgive up 325 square miles of Syrian territory captured in both the 1967 and 1973 wars The document also stipulates that this agreement isnot a peace agreement It is a step toward a just and durable peace on the basis of Security Council Resolution 338 dated Oct 22 1973 The wording appeared in tended to satisfy a Syrian de mand that the disengagement agreement be only a step toward pact incorporate written guar antees against Palestinian ter rorist infiltrators In exchange for the crucial concession Israel reportedly got an American pledge in a pro tocol that Israeli retaliation against terrorist attacks would be understood in Washington interpreted to mean the U S would veto any Security Council resolutions condemning possible Israeli reprisal raids A senior U S official said the broader Israeli withdrawal protocols that win remain un called for in Resolution 338 I publicized will be submitted to Thus the first disengagement agreement has no automatic connection with later phases for readjustment of the frontiers or the future homeland sought by the Palestinians The breakthrough in reaching agreement came when Israel dropped its insistence that the
