Ip 2. HERITAGE. Florida Jewish News. February 29. 1980 A lqrmr Israel and Egypt Establish Formal Relations by YYczhak ShargiL TEL AVIV (JTA) -- The first Arab envoy to Israel and the first Israeli envoy to an Arab nation met briefly at Ben Gunon Airport Monlay and each other well on their respective missions. Ambas- sador Saad Mortada, of Egypt, arrived in a private jet to be greeted by Israeli Ambassador Eliahu Ben-Flissar who took off for Cairo shortly afterward. The formal exchange of Ambassadors between Israel and Egypt took place Tuesday. Ben-Elissar pre- sented his credentials to President Anwar Sadat and Mortada presented his to President Yitzhak Navon. the Israeli head of State. The two men shook hands as representatives of the news media watched and spoke of their mutual task to further peace between their countries. They also referred to issues over which Israel and Egypt are in sharp disagreement-- Jewish settlements in the occupied territories and the Palestinian problem. Calls Settlements A Hurdle Mortada said he was happy to be the emissary of peace from the Egyptian nation to Israel. "We are closing the page of suffering and struggle and opening a new page of peace," he said. However, he foresaw difficulties. He said the settlements on the West Bank are one hurdle. He also said he has come here to start solving the Palestinian issue which he called the core of the Middle Eastern crisis. Mortada said he would not initiate meetings with West Bank Arabs but would gladly see them if they asked to meet with him. Ben-Elissar said he was bringing the message of peace to the Egyptian people. L! DR. BEN.ELISSAR "It is a great day for Israel and Egypt, a great contribution to the tranquilization of the region and to universal peace, when the first Egyptian Ambassador comes to Israel and when the first Israeli Ambassador leaves for the Arab Republic of Egypt," he said. Ben-Elissar added, "I do believe that more Arab coun- tries, neighbors' of Israel, will join the peace. Peace in the Middle East is inevitable. Peace with Egypt is the first and there will be more to follow." Ben-Elissar said the settle- ments are very important to Israel but they should not be regarded as hurdles or a diffi- culty on the road to a final settlement. "We are divided on this issue and we shall talk about it," he said. The Egyptian Embassy will occupy the 12th floor of the Tel Aviv Hilton Hotel until more suitable quarters are found. The Israeli Embassy in Cairo, which was opened formally last week, is also located in temporary quarters in the fash- ionable Doki district. An Israeli team is looking for permanent premises. General Dynamics Spills Beans on F-16 Fighters; U.S. Vague on War Plane Delivery to Egypt by Hirsh Goodman Post Military-Correspondent In an apparent case of a security oversight, details con- ceming the sale of F-16s to Israel have been published. In previous aircraft acquisition programmes, such informa- tion has always been classi- fied. A press kit issued by General Dynamics, the U.S. manufacturer of the F-16, details when Israel will receive each airplane, what changes Israel requested on the plane, what alternate mission equip rnent Israel requested, flight crew and maintenance train- ing schedules, and the ferrying of the 75 fighters to Israel. According to the press kit, which was issued in the U.S., four F-16 A's (one seater versions of the fighter) will arrive in Israel each month starting in August 1980, except for October 1980, when seven will be ferried here The kit also reports that the eight !=-!6 B's (two-seater versions) which Israel ordered will arrive in batches of four, three and one in July, September and October 1980, respectively. According to the kit, 12 Israeli instructor-pilots will be trained initially at Hill Air Force Base in the U.S. starting in January 1980. The course lasts six months. Reports Conflict Administration sources gave vague and sometimes conflicting indications Friday of the U.S. position toward supplying Egypt with the latest U.S. warplanes, the F-15 and the F-16. In line with the unfolding "Carter Doctrine" for the Middle East which seemingly calls for buildup of military strength in Egypt and Pakistan, the Administration is reported prepared to include both types of warplanes for Egypt but on a schedule of deliveries designed not to upset Israel unduly, lJt keep- ing President Anwar Sadat's government satisfied that Egypt will be a prime factor of U.S. strategy in the Eastern Mediterranean. The State Department spokesman refused to discuss the sale of F-I .Ss to Egypt, pointing out that the U.S. mili- tary mission that is now in Israel and was in Cairo earlier this-week, has been discuss- ONE OF THE FIRST photos of the new Israeli F. ! 6 fighter.

Sees Egypt on "Equal Footing" with Israel According to the authori- tative Egyptian newspaper AI Ahram, new U.S. military credits to Egypt would "open the doors" for Egypt to obtain the supersonic combat aircraft and America's best tank, the M-68-3. All was further quoted in AI Ahram as saying that the new weaponry "will place Egypt for the first time on an equal footing with Israel, as far as arms are con- cerned." The Cairo paper said that President Carter had written Sadat that he was ready to provide Egypt with F-I 5s and would send it 38 F-16s this year.
