US peace plan expected to dominate Arab summit

Arab heads of state continued to discuss President Reagan's proposals for peace in the Middle East at a two-hour closed session of their summit conference Monday night, conference sources said.

No details were released on the talks, attended by 19 Arab states and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). The new US plan was also expected to dominate the first full working session Tuesday. Another top priority was the Iran-Iraq war.

In Beirut, Salah Khalaf, a senior aide of PLO leader Yasser Arafat reportedly said that the PLO has rejected President Reagan's Middle East peace plan.
