Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, defying the wishes of Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, arrived in Egypt on Wednesday to confer with President Hosni Mubarak and other Egyptian officials on a proposed Middle East peace conference. "We are trying very hard to enlarge upon the prospects of peace," Peres told reporters. " . . . We have quite a number of issues to discuss, and I am here to see what the possibilities are (for) furthering the peace process."

Egypt's break with the Palestine Liberation Organization will include the expulsion of a brigade of PLO guerrillas, sources close to the government said Wednesday. Egypt created the Ain Jalout brigade about 30 years ago, but it has been inactive since the 1973 Middle East War. Egypt signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1979.

The gulf state of Qatar restored diplomatic relations with Egypt on Wednesday, joining eight other Arab countries in ending the isolation imposed after the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty of 1979. Arab countries began resuming relations with Cairo after an Arab League summit last week in Jordan, which left the decision to individual governments. The 21-member league suspended Egypt's membership in 1979.

The uprising by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip may not, as yet, be like the proverbial "shot heard round the world." But certainly the bullets fired by Israeli troops to quell the disturbances have echoed loudly here in Egypt, Israel's largest neighbor and peace treaty partner. Indeed, the unrest in Gaza, and to a lesser extent in the West Bank, has strained relations between the two Camp David signatories more than any other event since the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982.

Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres said Tuesday that Egypt has agreed to urge Palestinians to continue Middle East peace talks on the basis of a U.S. draft paper on Palestinian self-rule. "I think that we have agreed that while the American draft is not a holy script, it should not be retracted," Peres told reporters after meeting with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to seek Egypt's help in salvaging the 20-month-old talks.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said Friday that if Israel stops building settlements in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, Arab governments should respond by ending their four-decade-old boycott of companies that trade with Israel. "If Israel could suspend the building of settlements in the occupied territories, I believe that the Arab states should make a reciprocal concession by suspending the boycott," Mubarak told reporters after a meeting with Secretary of State James A. Baker III.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said Wednesday that peace in the Middle East appears impossible so long as Yitzhak Shamir remains prime minister of Israel. "The continuation of Mr. Shamir in his position . . . would make it difficult, even impossible, to reach a just solution . . . , " he told a weekly magazine here. Mubarak said he views Shamir's proposals for elections in Israeli-occupied areas as avoiding realistic peace negotiations.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, after months of threatening to block U.S. efforts to permanently extend the international pact regulating nuclear weapons, has pledged not to withdraw from the treaty even if Israel refuses to sign. Coming before talks with President Clinton today, Mubarak's comments in an interview with The Times defused the most troublesome dispute between the United States and Egypt since before the Camp David accords of 1978.
