Dispute on Holocaust Insurance Claims Ends

January 25, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Former U.S. Secretary of State Lawrence S. Eagleburger has backed down from a threat to resign as chairman of talks on compensating Holocaust survivors for unpaid life insurance claims after negotiators agreed to extend the deadline for accepting claims, participants said.

The European insurance firms and Jewish groups participating in the talks have been at odds over a number of issues. The friction came to a head at a meeting in Washington and, apparently frustrated by their lack of cooperation, Eagleburger said he would quit.
