CAIRO, EgyptEgypt and Israel will resume talks on resolving the Taba bordder dispute at the beginning of December, the newspaper Al Akhbar said in Sunday’s editions.
The talks originally were scheduled to resume at the beginning of October, but were postponed by Egypt in a protest of the Oct. 1 Israeli raid on the Palestine LibeTation Organization headquarters in Tunis.
Taba, a small strip of coastline along the Aqaba Gulf near Eilat, remained under Israeli control after Israeli troops evacuated the Sinai desert in 1982. Egypt says it has documents and maps that prove the area lies within its border.
Egypt is anxious to submit the dispute to binding international arbitration, but Israel prefers an attempt at negotiations.
