IR FASHIONS
BY RONALD

President Assad:
The Israelis knew

with the Americans, had not
informed them of his involve-
ment, they said.
Assad's Sept. 20 interview
in the Washington Post, dur-
ing which he confirmed for
the first time that he had met.
with Saddam Hussein,
reminded U.S. academic and
governmental experts on the
Middle East that Israel's in-
telligence commuinity had
been ahead of America's on
this one point.
In the interview, Assad said
the meeting did not achieve
much progress in ending the
decade-old conflict between
Damascus and Baghdad. "We
each had our own view on
Arab and international mat-
ters," he said "We remained
where we- were?'
Secretary of State George
Shultz, meanwhile, was due
to meet in New York later in
September with Syrian
Foreign Minister Farouk
Charaa as part of the continu-
ing U.S.-Syrian effort to im-
prove ties.
Earlier in the month, the
U.S. returned its ambassador
to Damascus. He had been
recalled after Syria was ac-
cused of involvement in the
aborted effort in London last
year to blow up an El Al
airliner:
One U.S. official cautioned
against any premature
predictions of a significant
change in Syria's policies. He
suggested that the Syrians, in
the effort to improve their im-
age in the U.S. and the West,
were merely engaged in
public relations, and not
substance. "It's glasnost —
Syrian style," he said.
He cited the Assad inter-
view as an example of this
kind of public relations. In
the interview, Assad clearly
tried to project a more
moderate image but did not
back away from traditional
Syrian positions.
Thus, Assad reaffirmed his
determination to achieve
strategic military parity with

Israel. "Strategic parity
should be achieved, and there
is no change or rethinking of
our attitude in this regard,"
he said.
"Any country that desires a
just peace in this region
should view the strategic
parity that we are seeking as
a fundamental positive factor
in achieving peace," he con-
tinued. "It is difficult to see
that Israel _would respond to
the requirement of a just
peace while it is feeling
superior?'
Assad welcomed the
Reagan Administration's re-
cent decision to return the
U.S. Ambassador to
Damascus. He again charged
that Israel had manufactured
the recent crisis in U.S.-
Syrian relations, but offered
no substantiation for this
accusation.
"Our conclusion is that it is
Israel which stands behind
all of this," he said. "There is
no serious and direct reason
that would have caused the
deterioration in relations bet-
ween our two countries!'
"At present," he continued,
"we do not know what is go-
ing on in the minds of the
Israelis. Israeli expansion, we
believe, is a strategic goal, not
a tactical one?'
On efforts to arrange an in-
ternational peace conference
involving Israel and its Arab
neighbors, Assad declined to
elaborate on remarks at-
tributed to him by former U.S.
President Jimmy Carter, who
reported last spring that
Assad was ready to enter in-
to direct negotiations with
Israel after such a conference
is convened.
"When there is unanimous
agreement on convening the
conference . . . then we will
move to a discussion of the
procedures?' he said.

War Criminal
Ouster Sought -

New York — The Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith called upon the presi-
dent of Costa Rica "to rescind
the temporary residence
status granted to accused
Nazi war criminal Bohdan
Koziy and order his deporta-
tion as an undesirable alien!'
In a cable to President
Oscar Arias Sanchez, ADL's
national director, Abraham
H. Foxman, said that the deci-
sion to harbor Koziy runs
counter to Costa Rica's "well-
deserved reputation as a bas-
tion of democracy and a coun-
try that respects interna-
tional law."
