Talks start on Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon

Despite progress on an agenda, Lebanon expects slow going when substantive talks start today (Jan. 17) on withdrawal of Israeli forces from Lebanon and future relations between the two countries. Today's session in Khalde, Lebanon, will be the first entirely devoted to the content of the agenda.

US envoy Philip Habib returned to Jerusalem Sunday to spur on the negotiations. According to Israeli state radio, Mr. Habib and a three-man team set up by Prime Minister Menachem Begin were to work out principles for the withdrawal. A spokesman for Begin denied Israeli press reports that Habib suggested moving the talks to Washington to speed them up.
