(Studio) Prospects for Mid. East peace conference soon are clouded as State Department issues anew statement that Palestinians must be involved in talks.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) This is surprise move by State Department and while spokesperson Hodding Carter can't identify any other representative group for Palestinians, he doesn't mention PLO. Under 2 weeks ago, administration had been upset with PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) for rejection of proposal that it accept United Nations resolution 242 as basis for negotiations; now overtures again made by administration to PLO. [Hodding CARTER - states that Palestinian representatives must be at conf., since status must be settled.] Israelis remind State Department they will veto Palestinian participation at conference Foreign minister Moshe Dayan comes to United States with Israeli peace plan; details with regard to fates of west bank, Golan Heights, Sinai and proposals for peace treaties with Egypt and Syria. United States officials say they'll study plan, but don't seem optimistic about Arab acceptance.
