By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Argentine Foreign Minister
Oscar A. Montes claims
there that no discrimina-
tion by race or religion
exists in his country. He de-
clared that proof of the ab-
sence of anti-Semitism
there is in a statement of the
DAIA, the Argentine Jew-
ish community's organiza-
tion.
Montes, who is in
Washington for the General
Assembly of the Organiza-
tion of American States,
(OAS), met with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency last
week at the Argentine OAS
mission offices in an inter
view initiated by the Argen-
tine Embassy.

The American Jewish
Committee closed its offices
in Buenos Aires a year ago
after its representative said
he faced threats of violence
from anti-Semites. Numer-
ous Jews have been jailed or
have disappeared and man-
ifestations of anti-Semitism
have frequently been re-
ported in connection with
them.
Nazis fleeing from jus-
tice for war crimes have
been traced to Argentina.
United States officials
have reported indica-
tions of anti-Semitism in
their visits to Argentina
and as a result the U.S.
Department of Justice is
expected soon to an-
nounce it will begin a
parole visa program to
enable 500 Argentinians,
Chileans and
Uruguayans who are vic-
tims of political repres-
sion to enter the U.S.

sponded to questions on var-
ious aspects of this reported
situation in Argentina.
On the general subject of
prevailing anti-Semitism,
he declared that one should
"not take my personal word
by the declaration of the
DAIA that anti-Semitism
has not existed before and
does not exist now." He em-
phasized that if some Jews
are in jails they are there for
the same reason as are
Catholics, Protestants or
Orthodox Christians. "They
are there only and exclu-
sively because of their par-
ticipation in terrorist ac-
tivities — not for their re-
ligious activities," he stres-
sed.
Asked if the DAIA, as an
organization of Argentine
citizens, would be expected
to show deference and sup-
port for their national gov-
ernment, Montes replied
that the DAIA statement
was "clear and broad
enough to include the gov-
ernment and all the in-
habitants of a free country
like Argentina."
Asked why Jews in
Argentina seem identified
as Israelis, Montes re-
sponded that "to me, Is-
raelis are Jews and Jews are
Israelis."
When it was remarked
that a top State Depart-
ment official had said
that Jewish prisoners are
subjected to religious
epithets and treated with
scorn, humiliation and
derision because they are
Jewish, Montes said that
this was "categorically
untrue" and no American
official had ever said that
to him.
Montes pointed out that
"every person in jail has the
right" to request emigra-
tion. The procedure, he said,
is for his application to be
sponsored by the ambas-
sador of the country which
asks to enter. "In that way,
the Argentine government
is assured that the person
will be received by that
country," he said.
Montes said that the ap-
plication is submitted to a
commission made up of
military and civilian offi-
cials which investigates the
applicant's background and
"takes account of conditions
of the country receiving the
arrested person because
some countries don't accept
terrorist people." The com-
mission, which is appointed
by Argentina's governing
junta, has the final tfecision
on such applications.
The procedure to emig-
rate was put into effect four
months ago. Since then,
nearly 20 persons have left
Argentina under this mea-
sure. He named Sweden and
England's recipients but did
not remember if any went to
the United States.
On Argentine-Israeli af-
fairs, Montes said, "Argen-

tins has very good diploma-
tic relations with Israel as it
has with Arab countries."
He pointed out that "as a
good friend of both, Argen-
tina votes in favor or
against Israel or the Arabs"
on a proposal in the United
Nations on the basis of its
impact on the maintenance
of peace in the region.
Argentina was one of 32
countries that abstained on
the 1975 resolution equat-
ing Zionism with racism.
