BEIT JALA, West Bank - Israel and the Palestinians should be able to reach a basic "framework agreement" for peace by the end of April and a full peace treaty within a year after that, the chief Palestinian negotiator said Wednesday. In a generally optimistic assessment of a peace process that many see as quixotic, Saeb Erekat said a framework agreement would include a general accord on core issues, but would leave the details of implementation to a final treaty. “April 29 is time for a framework agreement,” Erekat told foreign reporters in this West Bank town near Bethlehem.

Re "North Won't Deal While U.S. Troops Stay," Commentary, Aug. 16: We should listen and act on Hwal Woong Lee's assertion that it is the strong U.S. military presence in South Korea that forms a major barrier to reunification and peace on the Korean peninsula. U.S. taxpayers have carried this burden too long. If South Korea still needs our soldiers to stop a North Korean invasion through the Seoul corridor they do not deserve our continued support. It is time the 1953 armistice was replaced with a peace treaty and the Forgotten War brought to a final closure.

Israel and Jordan, consolidating what President Clinton called a "warm peace" between former enemies, announced on Monday joint economic and environmental projects intended to give their citizens a tangible dividend from the end of 46 years of hostility. Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres and Jordan's Crown Prince Hassan completed work on the measures in a meeting at the White House with Clinton and other U.S. officials.

Re "Marchers Vow to Beat Blockade in N. Ireland," July 6: The blockade on Garvaghy Road is a great testament to the apparent desire of Tony Blair's and Mo Mowlam's government to create a real peace in Northern Ireland. Any lasting peace will exist only when Protestant Orangemen realize that they can no longer trample upon their Catholic neighbors. The Orangemen's historic march on Garvaghy Road, which they have persisted upon despite the availability of other routes, is designed not to celebrate an ancient military victory, but to assert dominance of their culture over another.

"Many Disillusioned by Jordan's 'Democracy' " (July 22) should be required reading at the White House and State Department. It clearly documents that if the state of Jordan had a democracy of the people, then Jordan's friendship with the United States and the peace treaty with the state of Israel would disappear overnight. One may rationally conclude that democracy cannot save the Middle East at this time. Right now the Middle East needs good-hearted, fair-minded, peace-seeking, live-and-let-live leaders to allow the region to live and develop in peace.

After 19 years of war, and nearly a year of tortuous negotiations, leaders of Angola's government and rebel forces are tentatively scheduled to sign a U.N.-brokered peace treaty Sunday in Lusaka, the capital of Zambia. If all goes as planned, a cease-fire will take effect two days later, ending Africa's longest civil war. The plan calls for power-sharing between the government of President Jose Eduardo dos Santos and the rebel UNITA movement led by Jonas Savimbi.

Jim Mann rightly pointed out (International Outlook, July 29) that North Korea's celebration of the 44th anniversary of "victory" in the Korean War was Orwellian. However, his categorization of North Korea as a nation that continues to threaten its neighbors and American forces with missiles and chemical weapons is rather misleading. If the U.S. had agreed to supersede the 1953 armistice with a peace treaty and withdrawn its forces from the Korean peninsula, North Korea would not have even endeavored to develop missiles and chemical or nuclear weapons.

Israel's so-called cold peace with Egypt is looking colder by the day. Early Tuesday, Egypt reportedly permitted two Iranian warships to enter the Suez Canal for the first time since the Iranian Revolution in 1979. During a mass prayer service Friday in Cairo's Tahrir Square, anti-Israel cleric Yusuf Qaradawi? who returned to Egypt after years in exile ? called for the "conquest" of Jerusalem's Al Aqsa mosque, Islam's third-holiest site, which was captured by Israel in the 1967 Middle East War and sits atop a Jewish holy site.

The 250 U.S. soldiers killed in Thursday's crash were part of the world's youngest peacekeeping force and also the least visible, thanks to strict Egyptian and Israeli observance of the peace treaty the troops were helping to enforce. The 250 from the 101st Airborne Division had just completed a six-month tour of duty in the Sinai desert with the 11-nation Multinational Force and Observers (MFO), a 2,600-member group set up to monitor compliance with the 1979 Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty.
