Additional U.S. Funds
For Israel Debated
Washington (JTA) — The State
Department said Monday that it
hopes to reach a decision soon on
whether to provide Israel with the
$1.5 billion in additional eco-
nomic aid sought by the national
unity government headed by
But State Department deputy
spokesman Edward Djerajian
would not say whether the deci-
sion would come before Secretary
of State George Shultz goes to Is-
rael next week. He said he could
not put a "time frame" on it.
"We continue our close dialogue
with the government of Israel,"
Djerajian said. "We hope to be in a
position soon to reach a decision."
The Reagan Administration
has approved $1.8 billion in mili-
tary aid to Israel for the 1986 fis-
cal year, a $400 million increase,
and $1.2 billion in economic aid,
the entire $3 billion in grants. But
the U.S. has refrained from ap-
proving additional economic
funds sought by Israel because , 1
Shultz has maintained that Israel
has not done enough to solve its

scheduled to vote on the Foreign
Assistance Bill this week which

Djerajian refused to comment
Monday on reports that Peres sent
Shultz a letter outlining his eco-
nomic program in an effort to
meet U.S. conditions. In an inter-
view on Kol Israel Radio last
week, Peres said his letter con-
tained responses to. ten questions
posed by Shultz. He said he had
"no doubt" that the U.S. will pro-
vide the requested aid.
Mitterrand Visits Camp
_I....I :T r..-
Paris (JTA) — President Fran-
cois Mitterrand marked the 40th
anniversary of the liberation of
Nazi concentration camps with a
visit Sunday to Struthof, the only
death camp which existed in
France during World War II.
Bareheaded and followed by
half a dozen Cabinet ministers,
the president walked through the
camp for close to an hour. Some
12,000 people, mostly Jews, were
killed by the Nazis at Struthof be-
tween 1941 and 1945.
Mitterrand walked through
thick snow to inspect the inmates'
barracks and then to one of the
four ovens in which the bodies
were burned. Twenty former pris-
oners and 20 children from local
schools dropped bouquets of flow-
ers into the ashes in the oven.
Mittel.. rand then stood in si-
lence in front of the hundreds of
graves and the memorial inaugu-
rated by Gen. Charles de Gaulle
in 1960. Former presidents
Georges Pompidou and Valery
Giscard d'Estaing had also visited
the camp in 1970 and 1980, re-
spectively. Sources at the Elysee
Palace said that the visit to
Sruthof will be the only ceremony
marking the 40th anniversary of
the defeat of Nazi Germany which
Mitterrand will attend.
Last year, Mitterrand and West rz‘
German Chancellor Helmut Kohl
together attended a ceremony at a
military cemetery where German
and French soldiers who died dur-
ing the battle at Verdun are
buried. Their visit marked West
