BELFAST : Seeking Peace

British Prime Minister John Major and Irish Prime Minister Albert Reynolds are expected to confer by telephone this week to try to agree on language that could serve as a peace declaration for Northern Ireland.

The Irish leader says 70% of the document, whose contents remain secret, has been agreed on and could be presented at a summit this month.

But their task was complicated by the weekend murder by the Irish Republican Army of two Ulster Protestant policemen--an act certain to increase the hostility of Ulster Unionists to any compromise agreement.
