    Background: LONDON, UK

    The US Secretary of State, Alexander Haig, made an unscheduled stopover in Britain on Friday (29 January) to have a working lunch with the British Prime Minister, Mrs Margaret Thatcher, at her London home- Number 10 Downing Street. The Secretary of State was on his way back to the United States after a trip to the Middle State where he had talks with the Egyptian Foreign Minister Kamal Hassan Ali, the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and the Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin. They discussed the final arrangements for the hand-over of Israeli-occupied Sinai to Egypt in April. Mrs Thatcher and Mr. Haig chatted together while having their photographs taken and adjourned for lunch. British officials said they are likely to discuss the situation in Poland, relations with the Soviet Union and the progress of the Middle East peace plan.
