Background: The full signature of representatives of Israel to the protocol, agreed upon in Geneva between a delegation of Egypt and of Israel, was attached to the documents and the maps attached thereto during a short ??? this morning. At 10,00hrs General Siilasvua, Commander of UN Forces, who had also chaired the Geneva talks, accompanied by senior officers of his staff, showed Mr. Kidron, Dir. Gen. of the Israeli FO, and General Heral Shafir, Head of G (Operations) Branch at GHQ into the reception hall at UN HQ where a table was set up for the occasion. On one side sat the Israeli representatives and on the other Gen. Siilasvua and his side. The general ??? the Israeli representatives and after touching on the history of the protocol invited the Israelis to sign. After the signatures were attached and countersigned by General Siilasvua, the latter shook hands with the Israelis. Gen. Siilasvua is to fly to Cairo with the signed copies meant for the Egyptian side to hand the now fully signed papers to the Egyptians. With this formal act the ???-??? agreement has formally come into effect and already today the Israelis at Ras Sudar handed over the pumping facilities to 3 Americans of Mobiloil, who had checked the equipment and facilities since last Sunday and who will in turn, after already pumping oil for the Egyptians eventually hand over the installations to the Egyptian oilworkers. The military handover is due in November.
