NPR's Ted Clark reports that the US-brokered peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians will get under way Tuesday as forecast, but the talks will begin with both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat meeting separaely with President Clinton before any face-to-face meeting between the two Middle East leaders can take place. Even as the meetings in Washington were being prepared, however, US administration officials were lowering expectations that even the previously-agreed-to Oslo Accords could be reactivated.
