Egypt and Israel ended their latest round of talks on the Sinai coastal strip of Taba without reaching an agreement on Egypt's demand that the disputed area be submitted to international arbitration. Israeli Foreign Ministry Director General David Kimche said after the meeting near Cairo that the two sides will report to their governments before taking the next step. Taba, near the Israeli port of Eilat, was not returned to Egypt by Israel when it completed its withdrawal from the Sinai in April, 1982.
