Hebron Talks Planned

JERUSALEM () -- PLO negotiators said on Friday that Palestinian President Yasser Arafat, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak might all meet Saturday to try to clinch a deal on Israel's handover of Hebron to the Palestine Liberation Organization.


"It is very possible that Arafat and Netanyahu will meet in Cairo on Saturday. There is work on arranging such a meeting hosted by President Mubarak," said one PLO official. Israeli officials said no meeting had yet been set.


Arafat's adviser, Nabil Abu Rdainah, said: "President Arafat's position is clear that such a meeting should come after successful negotiations, so that the meeting would have positive results -- especially since the Hebron issue has not been agreed yet, and the crucial disputed issues have not been resolved."
