    Background: ISRAEL, Jerusalem

    A 15-person delegation from the European Parliament concluded its annual visit to Israel today with a press conference in which the chairman of the Euro group, Tove Neilson of Denmark, stressed that the European Parliament had not passed a resolution advocating a PLO State, or calling for unconditional recognition of the PLO, but rather a resolution which considered Israels vital interests and said that a Palestinian State should only be among the options considered within a comprehensive peace. She emphasized that before the European Parliament would recognise the PLO, it would have to rescind it's charter articles calling for Israel's abolition. Their host, Knesset speaker Menachem Savidor, responded that as a result of their explanation of that resolution, he could no longer consider it anti Israel as he had once, although he continued to view it as impractical because it encompassed the Reagan plan, the Camp David process and other avenues without endorsing a specific approach.
