Veliotes Quits
As Egypt Envoy

Washington (JTA) -- Reagan
Administration officials have
confirmed the resignation of
United States Ambassador to
'Egypt Nicholas Veliotes, and
denied reports that he was
forced out in an effort to smooth
relations with Egypt following
the Achille Lauro hijacking last
October.
Calling the envoy's perform-
ance•in Egypt "top-notch,"
White House spokesman Larry
Speakes said that Veliotes de-
cided to end his long career in
the Foreign Service because he
was offered an attractive posi-
tion in the private sector. He
will reportedly become president
of the New York-based Associa-
tion of American Publishers.
Veliotes most recently came to
public attention last fall, when
his angry demands that Egypt
prosecute the hijackers of the
Italian cruise-ship Achille Lauro
was recorded without his knowl-
edge and aired on radio and
television. The following day it
was discoverd that the ter-
rorists, who had killed an el-
derly American Jewish
passenger, _Leon Klinghoffer,
had been flown out of the coun-
try, and new tensions were
created when U.S. jet fighters
forced the Egyptian plane that
was carrying them to land in
Sicily.
According to one report, Vel-
iotes was forced out after a "sh-
outing match" with Secretary of
State George Shultz, who had
requested that he return to
Washington for consultations
following the incident. But State
Department spokesman Bernard
Kalb vigorously denied today
that the resignation was any-
thing other than a personal de-
cision.
Veliotes, 57, had served in
numerous Middle East-related
posts, including that of Assis-
tant Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and south Asian Affairs
from 1981 to 1983, when, he left
for Cairo. During his 30-year
career with the Foreign Service,
he was also Ambassador to Jor-
dan 1978. -81 and earlier, 1973-
75, Deputy Chief of Mission in
Tel Aviv.
Veliotes will reportedly be re-
placed by Deputy Assistant of
State for African Affairs Frank
Wisner. However, the State De-
partment would not comment on
who would be nominated or
when an announcement would
be made. Wisner's other Middle
East posts have been in Algiers
and Tunis.

No Travel Ban

Washington (JTA) -- The
State Department said last week
that it was not warning Ameri-
cans not to travel to Israel. "No
travel advisory for Israel has
been issued as a result of the re-•
cent: incidents and no such
travel advisory is being con-
templated," , Department
spokesman Bernard Kolb said
FBI director William Webster
recently urged Americans to be
careful , about ,• travelling in the
Middle East because of recent
rash of terrorist incidents.
