(Studio: Hilary Bowker) The issues involved in the pullout of Israeli troops from the West Bank town of Hebron reviewed. Interview held with deputy chief of mission at the Israeli embassy Shlomo Gur and PLO representative to the United States Hassan Abdel Rahman about the Hebron agreement. [GUR - predicts an agreement will be reached in a day and it will lay the groundwork for further negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians; recounts the tortuous nature of the talks; talks about "trust" between the two sides and the prospects of renewed violence.] [RAHMAN - lists the other peace issues left to be negotiated; points out that the implementation of a Hebron agreement is what really counts and that an agreement had been reached with the previous government; says extremists on both sides should not be allowed to determine the agenda.]
