September 07, 1986

Assistant Secretary of State Richard W. Murphy met privately with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak for 2 1/2 hours in Alexandria but made no progress toward resolving two issues holding back accord on an Egyptian-Israeli border dispute and a summit between the two nations. Foreign Minister Esmat Abdel Meguid told reporters that disagreement remained over the selection of international arbitrators to solve the Taba border dispute and over the map to be submitted to arbitration. Mubarak has said an arbitration agreement over Taba, a 250-acre patch of beach in the Sinai, must be signed before he meets Israel's Prime Minister Shimon Peres.
