(Studio) Syrian peace-keeping troops near Lebanon-Israel border have created potentially dangerous situation, but it's now apparently calmed down.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) With United States as go-between, Syria and Israel have agreed that South Lebanon will be patrolled by Lebanese troops, Palestinians will be kept out and Syrians will also stay out of area. Later, troops from Saudi Arabia and the Sudan may join Lebanese troops in patrol of area, according to plan by Lebanon President Elias Sarkis. This is shape of compromise plan to take effect until Carter administration in office. Libya and PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) oppose plan but are overruled by Syria, Egypt and Saudi Arabia; United States officials say this could be significant victory for Arab moderates over extremists.
