JERUSALEM — Sen. Albert Gore Jr. (D-Tenn.) says that if he became President he would become "personally involved" in negotiating peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
Gore also says that he would consider moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and would oppose a Reagan Administration proposal to sell arms to Saudi Arabia.
Gore, of Carthage, Tenn., is the first candidate for the 1988 elections to visit Israel since the U.S. campaign was launched earlier this year. He held talks with Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir and Foreign Minister Shimon Peres.
During a Tuesday news conference, Gore, 39, avoided siding with either Israeli leader on the issue of a proposed international conference on Middle East peace.
