Soviets Issue New
Mideast Statement

WOLF BLITZER

Special to the Jewish News

T

he Soviet Union's
latest policy state-
ment on the Arab-
Israeli conflict does not call
on Israel to withdraw from all
of the territories occupied
during the 1967 Six-Day War.
The previously unpublished
statement refers only to a
withdrawl of Israeli troops
"from territories occupied"
during the war. The omission
of the phrase "all of the ter-
ritories" or even "the ter-
ritories" was seen by
diplomats in Washington as
potentially significant.
The Soviet position paper
was read to Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres during a recent
meeting in Washington with
the Soviet Ambassador to the
United States, Yuri Dubinin.
It cited Soviet "flexibility" in
achieving a comprehensive
settlement.
Peres and his top aides have
- described the Soviet state-
ment as including some
potentially important modi-
fications of long-held Soviet
positions, especially in con-
nection with the convening of
an international peace
conference.
They have pointed to the
omission of the word
"authoritative" in describing
the conference, and to the
Soviets' statement that none
of the participants could im
pose decisions. In addition,
the Soviets were vague in
describing how often the full
plenary would meet.
U.S. officials, however, have
continued to speak of serious
differences with the Soviets
on several key points related
to such a conference.
The entire Arab-Israeli sub-
ject was expected to be
reviewed in considerable
detail during President
Ronald Reagan's summit in
Moscow with Soviet General
Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev.
The Soviet paper stipulates
that the PLO is "the
legitimate representative of
the Arab people of Palestine!'
It also says that an interna-
tional conference should be
based on UN Security Coun-
cil Resolutions 242 and 338 as
well as "the legitimate rights
of the Palestinian people, in-
cluding the right for self-
determination!'
But it leaves open the
possibility that the Palesti-
nians themselves may decide
to exercise this right by either
establishing their own state

or by entering into "con-
federation with any of their
neighbors."
Regarding the interna-
tional conference, the Soliiet
paper says that conference
participants could "collective-
ly or individually table pro-
posals and recommenda-
tions." Negotiations could be
conducted at full plenary ses-
sions or at separate bilateral
or multilateral forums.
It also says that the Soviet
Union would not oppose "in-
termediate measures and
steps" which would lead to a
comprehensive settlement.

Israel Denies
Helping China

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin has
flatly denied an American
press report that Israeli
technicians helped the
Chinese modify and improve
an intermediate range
ballistic missile subsequent-
ly sold to Saudi Arabia.
"Israelis were never part-
ners in the transfer of
technology or anything
related to ground-to-ground
missiles to China," Rabin was
quoted by Israel Television as
saying.
He was responding to a
report in the Washington Post
that Israelis helped the
Chinese develop the weapon,
improve the accuracy of its
guidance system and modify
it to carry conventional in-
stead of nuclear warheads.

Bishops Answer
Rabbi's Claim

Rome (JTA) — The Catholic
establishment has responded
to charges by Rome's chief
rabbi, Ellio lbaff, that the
Catholic press shares respon-
sibility with the general news
media for the recent wave of
anti-Semitic incidents in
Italy.
The Conference of Italian
Bishops released a statement
expressing deep concern over
the incidents. It condemned
anti-Jewish attitudes and
warned Italians to beware of
anti-Semitic feelings.
It urged Catholics to dif-
ferentiate between Jews and
the acts and policies of the
Israeli government, and to re-
ject simplified or distorted ac-
counts of events in the Middle
East.
