SHARE NEW TALKS ON GULF WAR

Iran and Iraq have proposed new but unspecified dates for further talks to end the Persian Gulf war, and U.N. mediator Jan Eliasson hopes they will respond to last-min-ute objections raised by Baghdad, a U.N. spokeswoman said Wednesday. She said the mediator, Swedish diplomat Jan Eliasson, left Geneva for New York Wednesday after telephone contacts with U.N. Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar and further talks with the two sides shortly before his departure.
