Friendship Pervades Discussions

(Continued from Page 16)
"I am sure we will agree
to something."
Rabin agreed that
there is a Palestinian
question, but emphasized
"it is by no means the
heart or the crux" of the
Mideast conflict.
He reiterated that "what
prevents peace is the re-
luctance of the Arab gov-
ernments to recognize Is-
rael as a viable, indepen-
dent Jewish state." He
said once this recognition
is achieved all the other
problems will be easily
solved.
.„._ --
The Palestinian-, issue
-would thus be solved
through negotiations
with Jordan, he said.
Rabin also said that he
had not heard from Car-
ter any demands to re-
duce present level of U.S.
arms shipments to Israel.
President Carter gave
another pledge of strong
and continuing-American
support for Israel at the
working dinner at the
White ,House for Rabin
.Monday night.
Carter said he and
Rabin had discussed "the
possibilities in 1977 of
helping to carve out for
Israel and for Israel's
neighbors the time of
permanent peace, of

mutual respect, trade,
better understanding
and of the acceptance of
differences that in the
past have been devisive."
Later, in his'toast to Ra-
bin, Carter recalled that
President Truman recog-
nized 4rael 12 minutes
after the Jewish state
came into existence 29
years ago. "And that rec-
ognition and that friend-
ship has never wavered, -
Carter added.
"Many people in our
own country," the PreSi-
dent said, "have looked on
our relationship with Is-
rael as one of support and
one of friendship that was
to Israel's benefit. I have
never looked on it that
way. I consider it to be an
equal partnership that
has derived for our coun-
try and for the cause of
freedom tremendous ben-
efits for us and this is a
time of a sharing of plans
for the future. -
In his response to the
President, Rabin said
that "the unique rela-
tionship that has been
developed between our
two countries" results
from their "spirit of free-
dom; the belief in detrnoc-
racy and the permanent
search for peace and hap-
piness."
He said, "Your initia-

tive" to start the talks
with the Middle Eastern
leaders "this time will
alloW us to build the kind
of thinking and, I hope,
also action with coordina-
tion with other leaders of
the area that will bring
about an end to a long,
futile war and will start a
new beginnjpg to Israel
and to all the countries in
the area."
Rabin also said "This is
the first visit of a prime
minister of Israel that has
come to the United States
without a shopping list,
without the need to make
imminent decision be-
cause of the pressure of
events. -
In keeping with the
scaled :down formal .pro-
gramming; the dinner
was limited by the Presi-
dent. to 35 guests. They
included the Israeli vis-
itors and embassy offi-
cials, the President's
principle aides and prom-
inent members of Con-
gress.
Rabin met with De-
fense Secretary Harold
Brown for more than an
hour at Blair House 'fol-
lowing a long, working
lunch with Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance. On
leaving the meeting,
Brown. described it as
"useful and productive."
