Time;12/5/1977, Vol. 110 Issue 23, p69
The article focuses on the proposed plan to achieve Middle East peace settlement and end hostile acts among Israel and Arab states. It says that the plan suggests on the return of the sovereignty of Sinai Peninsula to Egypt while Israel would pull out its forces to the pre-1967 lines and remove its 16 Sinai settlements. It also cites that Israel has no legal claim to Golan Heights and it must remove its troops, dismantle the 26 settlements and return the sovereignty of the territory to Syria. It says that Israel can pull out its troops and vacate the 51 settlements in the West Bank but it must be allowed to keep security outposts along the Jordan River.
