An Economic
Understanding

A secret agreement
on aid for Israel
resulted from
Modal's U.S visit.

Washington (JTA) — Israeli Fi-
nance Minister Yitzhak Modai ap-
peared to have reached an understand-
ing with the Reagan Administration
last week on the level of economic aid
to be requested for Israel from Con-
gress and on the direction of Israel's
economic reform. But he said at a press
conference that he had agreed "not to
publicize any figures or any methods."
The minister, whose visit to
Washington coincided with the open-
ing of Congressional subcommittee-
level hearings on an aid package to
. Israel, told reporters, "All I can say is
that we did come to an understanding
on the objective itself." He added that
specifics would "be worked out be-
tween the parties as we go along."

Although the Reagan Adminis-
tration has submitted its foreign aid
package to Congress for fiscal 1986, it
has omitted a figure for economic aid
to Israel and abstained from any
recommendation on meeting Israel's
request for an additional $1.5 billion
in emergency financing over two
years. It maintains that Israel must
adopt further measures to reform its
economy before additional American
aid could be effective. The package,
however, does include a request for
$1.8 billion in military aid, represent-
ing a $400 million increase over the
amount approved for fiscal year 1985.
Israel has requested a total of $4.05
billion for 1986.
Referring to his agreement with
the Administration not to publicize de-
tails, Modai declined to say whether he
had received assurance that a figure
for economic aid would be submitted
following this week's visit to Washing-
ton by Egypt's Hosni Mubarak.
