In a speech after a dinner given in his honor by Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir and again at a press conference the next morning. Carrington reiterated the main principles of the European Economic Community's (EEC) Venice declaration of June 1980—the need to bring the PLO into the peace process provided that it first "accepts Israel's right to live in peace and security." He stressed at the same time that Israel must be "satisfied about her own security" in any negotiated settlement. „, Carrington added, however, that such a settlement should give the Palestinians "self-determination" and observed, "If we demand the right of Israel to live in peace and security, we must be prepared for these rights to be accorded to others." Thesis Categorically Rejected Both Shamir and Premier Menachem Begin, with whom Carrington conversed at length since his arrival, categorically rejected the British diplomat's thesis that the PLO had to be brought into negotiations because it is an inescapable reality in the area. Labor Party chairman Shimon Peres, who breakfasted with Carrington, said the PLO was not only bent on bringing disaster upon Israel but would also bring disaster to the Palestinians themselves. Peres repeated his party's position that the Palestinian issue should be negotiated with Jordan. Begin charged that European support for Palestinian self-determination prejudiced the chances for progress in the autonomy talks between Israel, Egypt and the U.S. "Give autonomy a chance," Begin told the Brit- Reagan Hopeful That Progress Toward Autonomy Will Occur WASHINGTON (JTA)- The Reagan Administration's public position toward the recent violence on the West Bank was reiterated by President Reagan last Thursday at his nationally televised press conference at the White Bouse.

Reagan gave as the reason for his optimism that "I have the pledge of my friend (Premier) Menachem Begin and ^President (Hosni)..; Mubarak that they are going forward with the framework of the Ca,mp David agreement to resolve all these other problems. I'm hopeful that we will see more progress on these talks after April 25 when the transfer of Sinai comes." The President stressed that the Camp David agreement comes within UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338. "They (the Israelis) have, as I say, pledged to me that they are going to abide by that," he said. In his brief remarks on the West Bank, Reagan seemed • to go out of his way to explain the Israeli position. He noted that "Israel claims" it removed some of the West Professor Marvin Fox Named Kaplan Scholar-in-Residence The B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation has named Marvin Fox, noted scholar and Professor of Jewish Philosophy, as its 1982 Rabbi Harry Kaplan Scholar-in-Residence.

Carrington replied that the Europeans by no means sought to impair the autonomy prospects but simply believed it would not work..' .. He explained at his press conference that this view stemmed from the fact that all of Israel's neighbors, except Egypt, oppose the autonomy Scheme.
