invoking the Foreign Assist-
ance Act of 1974 that stipu-
lates that the President may
not expend funds from the
$100 million Special Re-
quirements Fund for the
Middle East if Congress
adopts a concurrent resolu-
tion disapproving such ac-
tion within 30 days after no-
tice from the President of
his intention.
They cited langugage in
the law which expresses the
sense of the Congress that
funds should not be pro-
vided "to any nation which
denies its citizens the right
or opportunity to emigrate."

the Foreign Office replied in
the negative when asked
whether Foreign Secretary
James Callaghan had dis-
cussed an arms deal with
Syria during his meeting
last week with the visiting
Syrian Foreign Minister
Abdul Halim Khaddam.

The spokesman said
that the foreign secretary
was pleased with the op-
portunity to obtain a first-
hand insight into Syria's
official thinking from
Khaddam. The Syrian dip-

lomat invited the Foreign
Secretary to visit Syria
and the invitation was ac-
cepted.

In New York, the Na-
tional News Council an-
nounced that a public hear-
ing will be held July 9 on a
complaint by the American
Jewish Congress charging
CBS News with inaccuracy
and distortion in a segment
of the "60 Minutes" program
dealing with Syria's rela-
tionship to Israel.

The U.S. Agency for In-
ternational Development
has notified Congress that
it wished to provide Syria
with $48 million for the
Damascus water supply
system and $10 million for
agricultural loans. Earlier
in the year, President Ford
notified Congress. he was
providing Syria with $25
million in agriculture as-
sistance.

No action was taken to
disapprove of that request
as the Congressmen did not
want to affect Kissinger's
efforts for an interim agree-
ment at that time. However,
82 Representatives, in a let-
ter to Kissinger, urged that
action be undertaken to
"prevail upon the Syrian
government to give those
Syrian Jews who wish to
leave their country the right
to do so."
