SYNOPSIS: In discussions at the Kubbeh Palace in Cairo on Monday, President Tito of Yugoslavia talked to Egyptian leaders on the Middle East crisis.
Egypt's President Anwar Sadat talked with President Tito for three hours at the Palace, as he prepared to deliver Egypt's terms for a Middle East settlement to U.N. envoy Gunnar Jarring. Dr. Jarring has asked for a "declaration of intent" from the two sides. President Tito, who is on a week's visit to Cairo had said at a Cairo banquet the night before that President Sadat's proposal to re-open the Suez Canal in return for a partial Israeli withdrawal from the East bank had met with' understanding and support' from many quarters. President Sadat repeated the same evening that the Israeli withdrawal must be complete and the Palestinian problem honourably solved, if a peace settlement was to be reached.
