Top Israeli ministers head for Washington

Israel said its defense and foreign ministers would fly to Washington today at President Reagan's request for urgent talks on Middle East peace efforts and the renewed fighting in Lebanon.

Defense Minister Moshe Arens and Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir will meet with US officials about the same time as Prime Minister Menachem Begin would have had he not canceled a summit scheduled this week with Mr. Reagan. Reagan's request came in a letter Sunday to Begin, who presented it for immediate approval at the Cabinet's weekly meeting.
