The World

The Archbishop of Canterbury’s special Beirut envoy, Terry Waite, said the time is ripe “for a major move forward” in negotiations with the kidnapers of American hostages. Returning to Lebanon from London, where he met with U.S. officials, Waite said he is now hopeful that progress can be made. He talked with the kidnapers last week. “I have very important things to say to them,” he said, without giving details of what proposals he might offer to the Americans’ captors. ". . . I believe that last time was a good step forward. I think now it’s possible to take another step forward.”
