Bid to Salvage Peace Talks Fails

December 22, 1987|Associated Press

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — Efforts to restart cease-fire talks between Nicaragua and the Contra rebels failed today and both sides prepared to leave.

"We are at an impasse," Cardinal Miguel Obando y Bravo, the Roman Catholic leader in Nicaragua, told reporters. The talks broke off early today after both sides disagreed adamantly on the issue of face-to-face negotiations. Both sides nevertheless pledged to respect the truce called for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
