In its regular meeting on 30 August the cabinet did not complete its discussion of tactics for Am- bassador Tekoah's talks with UN mediator Jarring. Tekoah's return will therefore be delayed, accord- ing to reports in the Israeli press, until after cabinet meetings scheduled for yesterday and pos- sibly Thursday. Meanwhile, the press has been making much of the continuing cabinet discussion of Israel's posi- tion on the talks. Defense Minister Moshe Dayan has been cited as insisting on the correction of Egyp- tian cease-fire violations before the talks could continue. Other members of the cabinet are reported by the press to be opposed to making an issue of the cease-fire violations at this time and to be in favor of continuing the talks. Prime Minister Golda Meir, however, is known to have grave personal reser- vations about the cease-fire violations and may her- self be close to Dayan's position. At any rate, the increased cabinet concern over the violations has probably contributed at least in part to a hardening of Israel's position toward the talks. Press reports from Tel Aviv have indicated that Israel will insist that Egypt remove from the cease-fire zone missiles that the Israelis say were moved into the zone since the cease-fire went into effect. As yet, however, no responsible Israeli offi- cial has tied Tekoah's return to -a roll-back of the Egyptian missile installations. 2 Sep 70 Central Intelligence Bulletin 25X1 Approved For Release 2003/1` kiC1dA"-hDP79T00975A017000110001-0 25X1 Approved For Release 2003/10/01 : CIA-RDP79T00975A017000110001-0 Next 1 Page(s) In Document Exempt Approved For Release 2003/10/01 : CIA-RDP79T00975A017000110001-0 Approved For Release 2003/10/ 1E i 79T00975A017000110001-0 NOTES Cambodia : Communist forces yesterday checked a second effort by government troops to retake the town of Srang, 25 miles southwest of Phnom Penh, Cambodian casualties reportedly were light, however. The US defense attache in Phnom Penh specu.at.es that an enemy battalion from the headquarters of the North Vietnamese lst Division, located some ten miles west of Srang, may be participating in the battier Laos: The Communists appear to be :making an eleventh-hour effort to (jet. Prime Min-is ter Souvanna Phouma to agree to their scenario for peace talks, In a radio broadcast on l September, Pathet Lao leader Prince Souphanouvong named a new representa- tive who would be prepared to meet at. Khang Kbay with Souvanna's plenipotentiary to "create con.d_i- tions" for later negotiations Souphanouvong con- demned his half brother's appointment of a "s B--cal: ed government delegation" for the talks as contrary to an alleged understanding that the meetings at Khang Khay would be between representatives of the two princes. Souvanna, who is scheduled to leave Laos today on a two-month trip abroad, is unlikely to accede to the latest Pathet.

He laid great stress upon the upgrading of the Lib- yan Army in the year since the revolution and noted the presence of modern tanks and aircraft in the parade. Qaddafi, however, reserved the details of Libya's "great achievements"--which presumably will include some reference to actions taken or contem- plated against the oil companies--for another speech to be given in Benghazi on 4 September. 25X1 1 -1 International Copper: The International Council of Copper Exporting Countries will meet in Paris on 15 September to discuss means of stemming the decline in the world market price for copper, which dropped from 80 cents per pound last April to a current level of 56 cents. Council members are Zambia, Chile, Peru, and Congo (Kinshasa), all heavily dependent on copper sales for foreign exchange earnings and government .revenues. They are the major free world copper pro- ducers besides the US and together account for more than three fourths of world copper exports. 2 Sep 70 Central Intelligence Bulletin Approved For Release 2003/10/c :"e1-a79T00975A017000110001-0 Secrw roved For Release 2003/10/01 : CIA-RDP79T00975A017000110001-0 Secret Approved For Release 2003/10/01 : CIA-RDP79T00975A017000110001-0
