Reagan Downplays U.S. Pact With Israel

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
President Reagan contin-
ued Tuesday night the effort
of his Administration to
convince Arab states that
the agreement for strategic
cooperation reached during
Israeli Premier Yitzhak
Shamir's visit to Washing-
ton was not anything new.
"There was no signed
agreement or anything
else," Reagan said. In re-
sponse to questions at a na-
tionally - televised press
conference. "We were really
re-affirming the relation-
ship we have had since
1948."
A senior State Depart-

ment official made the same
point in briefing foreign
correspondents. But he
noted that the joint U.S.-
Israeli military and politi-
cal group, which will have
its first meeting in mid-
January, "will make the re-
lationship more structured
and more formalized."
Reagan said that he
emphasized to Shamir
that "the United States
also wants to move for-
ward with its relations
with the modern Arab
states" so that the U.S.
"can be a catalyst" in try-
ing to bring peace to the
Middle East.

He said that "if we're to
have any chance of bringing
them together, continuing
the process that started at
Camp David where Egypt
and Israel wound up with a
peace treaty . . . we've got to
befriend all of those coun-
tries and they've got to be
able to trust us so that we
can be fair to all of them."
The President indicated
he believed that moderate
Arab states are ready to
negotiate with Israel. He
noted there had been "re-
fusal on their part to even
acknowledge the right of Is-
rael to exist as a nation. So
therefore, there could be no
negotiations." But Reagan
added that the - late Egyp-
tian President Anwar Sadat
"broke out of that mold" and
that resulted in peace be-
tween Israel and Egypt.
"Our goal was to see if we
couldn't find more leaders
and more governments that
would become "Egypts' in a
sense, in settling their dis-
putes and having peace,"
Reagan stressed. "And to-
day, the very fact that
there's an indication that
they are willing and pre-
pared to negotiate dif-
ferences indicates that they
no longer are holding that
position of refusing to let Is-
rael exist."
At the same time, the
President stressed that
the Middle East is a tin-
derbox. "It is the one
place that could start a
war that no one wanted
because of its impor-
tance, particularly to the
Free World and to our al-
lies. And we can't just
turn away and say if we
don't look, it'll go away."
Reagan expressed his de-
termination to keep the
Marines in Lebanon until
the United States had
achieved its objective. "The
Marines will come home as
quickly as we can possibly
bring them home after ac-
complishing our mission,"
the President said.
He added that the deci-
sion will not have anything
to do with the 1984
Presidential election cam-
paign. "I will tell you this,"
Reagan declared. "No deci-
sion regarding the lives and
safety of our servicemen
will ever be made by me for
a political reason."
Reagan, who was re-
peatedly questioned about
the Marines, said that his
statement last week that
they "might be pulled out if
there was a total collapse in
Lebanon was a hypothetical
answer to a hypothetical
question."
He said that what he
was trying to say was that
the only reason for pul-
ling out the Marines and
the other members of the
multi-national force,
other than accomplish-
ing its mission, would be
if there was a complete
change of course in
Lebanon from the one

which brought the MNF
into Lebanon.
But the President
stressed that "progress has
been made." He outlined the
mission of the Marines as
going behind the Lebanese
army as it takes over the
territory evacuated by the
foreign forces in order to try
to achieve some stability
and maintain order, "be-
cause Lebanon doesn't have
the forces to do both."
Reagan said the U.S. is
seeking a political solution
in Lebanon and believes it
can avoid a war with Syria.
But he added, "I will not OK
a mission or ask or order our
armed forces to go some-
place where there is danger
and tell them they have not
the right to defend them-
selves."
He said that the firings by
U.S. ships and planes on the
forces that have sniped at
the Marines have resulted,
rather than in stepped-up
activity, that there has been
some pause for thought on
those that were deciding
that the multinational
forces were fair game."
At the same time, Re-
agan said he believed
there would continue to
be terrorist attacks
against the Marines.
"But are we — and where
would -we be in the world —
are we to let the terrorists
win?" Reagan said. "Are we
to say that, well, if terrorists
are going to be active, we'll
give into them, we'll back
away?"

WASHINGTON — Israel
has told U.S. officials that
some 200 Soviet technicians
were killed during an Is-
raeli air raid on Syrian
anti-aircraft positions in
Lebanon's Bekaa Valley in
June 1982.
According to Aviation
Week and Space Technol-
ogy magazine, the Israelis
used unmanned aerial sur-
veillance and target plat-
forms during the attack, as
well as pilot-less aircraft to
fool air defense radar and
divert enemy anti-aircraft
missiles.
The magazine also said
that the Israelis used a new
surface-to-surface weapon
employing radar-homing
sensors.
