W ashington — Assis-
tant Secretary of
State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Af-
fairs Richard Murphy will not
meet with any members of
the PLO during his upcoming
visit to the Middle East, State
Department officials said.
Murphy, who will visit
Israel, Egypt, Jordan and
Syria, will be bound by the
same prohibitions against
any meetings with the PLO
that have been U.S. policy
since the signing of the 1975
U.S.-Israeli Memorandum of
Agreement barring such con-
tacts.
"Absolutely nothing has
changed in our approach to
that question," State Depart-
ment spokesman Charles
Redman said last week.
The issue of U.S. contacts
with the PLO surfaced when
Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak said that Murphy
would be meeting with "non-
prominent" members of the
PLO during his tour of the
region.
However, Murphy told a
House Foreign. Affairs Sub-
committee that there has
been no change in U.S. policy
on this matter. He said that
the recent highly publicized
and controversial statement
by PLO spokesman Bassam
Abu Sharif on peace with
Israel was not "authorita-
tive." As a result, Murphy
added, the PLO has not yet
met America's conditions for
recognition.
Over the years, there have
been occasional U.S. "con-
tacts" with the PLO in con-
nection with security ar-
rangements for U.S. diplo-
mats in Beirut and in trying
to win release of American
hostages. Israel has not pro-
tested these -contacts" as
violating the 1975
agreement.
The State Department has
said that Murphy is anxious
to meet with -responsible"
Palestinians — just as
Secretary of State George
Shultz had done during
earlier visits ti.. the region.
U.S. officials said no
meetings between Murphy
and Palestinians had yet been
finalized.
The State Department an-
nounced that Murphy would
meet in Geneva with his
Soviet counterpart, Vladimir
Polyakov, to discuss the situa-
tion in the Middle East. From
Geneva, Murphy will embark

on a swing through the
region, includings stops in
Israel, Jordan, Syria and
Egypt.
Spokesman Redman de-
scribed the purpose of Mur-
phy's journey as part of the
continuing effort to achieve "a
comprehensive Middle East
peace." He said there were no
immediate plans for
Secretary of State George
Shultz to return to the region.
Murphy said he would raise
with Polyakov the recent
spread of ballistic missiles in
the Middle East. But he
acknowledged that this was a
difficult problem to resolve.
"It's going to be hard," he
said, "but the focus is there
and we're going to be working
it."

Senate Okays
New Embassy

Washington (JTA) — The
Senate voted to allow the
State Department to build
the new diplomatic facilities
in Tel Aviv with the stipula-
tion that a comparable com-
pounds are built in
Jerusalem.
The measure, sponsored by
Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) and
adopted by voice vote last
week to the State Depart-
ment's 1989 appropriations
bill, is intended to force a
future U.S. president to
recognize either Tel Aviv or
Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
The amendment specifies
that the structures be de-
signed in such a way that
"equally preserves the abili-
ty of the United State to
locate its ambassador or its
consul general at either site
consistent with U.S. policy."
It also requires both
facilities open at the same
time, and prevents the State
Department from announcing
which site would serve as the
embassy until construction
on at least one of the facilities
is close to completion.
A congressional source said
the agreement was ham-
mered out between Helms,
Sen. Chic Hecht (R-Nev.) and
Max Kampelman, counselor
to Secretary of State George
Shultz.
Should the House approve
the measure, the department
would likely seek construc-
tion money in its 1991 budget
request.
