New Arab UN Attacks on Israel
Called 'Dishonorable Tirades'

State Dept. Demands Suez Rectifications;
Gen. Yariv Shows How Truce Is Violated

WASHINGTON (JTA)—The United States position continues to be that rectification
of Egyptian-Soviet violations of the Suez cease fire must take place before indirect Arab-
Israeli peace talks can resume under the auspices of United Nations envoy Gunnar V.
State Department spokesman John King declared "That is our position," when
questioned at a news briefing. King's remarks contradicted a growing feeling that the U.S.
was backing down on its demand for rectification of the violations. That feeling arose
from the fact that rectification was not mentioned by Pretident Nixon in his talks with
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko or by Secretary of State William P. Rogers
in his talks with Egyptian Foreign Minister Mahmoud Riad last week.
King said that the U.S. entertained no doubts that truce violations had occurred.
He confirmed a statement by Israel's chief of intelligence, Gen. Aharon Yariv, in Tel
Aviv, that the Egyptians had violated a proviso that strictly prohibited either side from
improving its anti-aircraft missile strength within a 32-mile stretch on either side of the
Suez Canal.
TEL AVIV (JTA)—The chief of Israeli intelligence charged Monday that there are
about 3,000 Russian troops and technicians in the 32-mile Suez Canal standstill cease-
fire zone in flagrant violation of the Aug. 7 truce. According to Gen. Aharon Yariv, the
Russians are manning SAM 3 anti-aircraft missile batteries. He said the SAM 3s comprise

UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (JTA)—Foreign Minister Mahmoud
Riad of Egypt got the General Assembly's Middle East debate under
way Monday with a 40-minute venomous condemnation of Israeli
"aggression," "expansionism," "opportunism," "politicial deceit" and
"colonial and racist designs." Half an hour later, Foreign Minister
Abba Eban of Israel held a press conference to denounce Riad's "very
violent and dishonorable tirade." Eban said he would state Israel's
case to the assembly "at an early date."
Eban said Minister Riad was "someone who doesn't seem to be
taking world opinion seriously." The Egyptian offensive against the
Jews, he declared, has been the most overwhelming "since the down-
fall of Hitler."
President Nixon brought his efforts for a resolution of the current
United States-Soviet deadlock over the Middle East to the United
Nations General Assembly after a lengthy meeting at the White
House with Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko. In his address
at the UN last Friday, the President emphasized that "It is essential
that we and the Soviet Union join in efforts toward avoiding war in the
Middle East, and also toward developing a climate in which the
nations of the Middle East will learn to live and let live." That last
phrase was seen as a plea to the Arab states not to seek the destruction
of Israel. Nowhere in his speech did the President mention the Egyp-
tian violations of the standstill provisions of the truce by the introduc-
tion of Soviet missiles into the Suez Canal zone. The closest be came
to that aspect of the Mid East situation was when he invited the USSR
"to join us in taking that new road—to join in a peaceful competition
—not in the accumulation of arms, but in the dissemination of
progress; not in the building of missiles but in waging a winning war
against hunger and disease and human misery in our own countries
and around the globe."
The statement issued by U Thant Friday night after a dinner at
the UN with the Big Four foreign ministers—Maurice Schumann of
France, Sir Alec Douglas-Home of Britain, Rogers and Gromyko-
noted that the foreign ministers "had a useful exchange of views with
the secretary general and Ambassador Jarring on the situation in the
Middle East." In addition to agreeing to exert their utmost efforts to
enable Dr. Jarring to resume his mission, Thant's statement—
issued as a joint communique on behalf of the four foreign ministers
—also noted the diplomats agreed to "search for possibilities through
