W

hat has become
clear in Washington
in recent weeks is
that Secretary of State James
Baker and other senior Bush
administration foreign policy
officials are inclined to accept
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir's repeated assurances
that he is indeed serious
about pursuing the Arab-
Israeli peace process.
And recent arrival in
Jerusalem of a high-level U.S.
delegation was designed to
underscore this positive
assessment by the
administration.
Dennis Ross, the head of the
State Department's Policy
Planning Staff and a key ad-
viser to Baker, joined other
U.S. officials in the continu-
ing effort to refine and test
the Shamir plan, which last
week was formally approved
by the Israeli Cabinet.
In addition to Israel, the
Ross delegation visited Egypt
and Jordan. Coming in the
aftermath of Baker's talks in
Moscow with top Soviet
leaders, including Foreign
Minister Eduard Shevard-
nadze, the American officials
reported to Israeli and Arab
policy-makers on the outcome
of the Moscow meetings,
Ross, who was with Baker
in the Soviet Union, had a
chance to give the Israeli and
Arab leaders a firsthand ac-
count of the latest U.S.-Soviet
dialogue. The Americans now
believe that Moscow can help.
It has a role to play.
The shifting American at-
titude was underlined during
a press briefing by a senior
U.S. official who joined Baker
on the trip. As reported by the
Washington Times, the un-
named official "We welcome
all the help we can get [in the
Middle East], and if [the
Soviets] want to come in as
real players, that doesn't
disturb us. But we need more
that just rhetoric. We need
some action to support the
words." Secretary of State
Baker, he said, is looking for
Soviet support for Shamir's
Palestinian election proposal.
Baker and other U.S. policy-
makers have been anxious in
recent weeks to answer key
questions about the Soviets:
Has the Kremlin, under
President Mikhail Gorbachev,
really moderated its policies
toward the Middle East? Is it
prepared to adopt a more con-
structive policy, beginning
with the re-establishment of

diplomatic relations with
Israel? Will it work with the
United States to reduce the
broader military tensions in
the Middle East?
The Soviets, according to
U.S. officials, could signal
their constructive approach
by taking other steps as well.
There is no doubt, for exam-
ple, that the Americans would
welcome a Soviet decision to
curtail weapons shipments to
Libya and Syria. The Soviets

process moves

recently sold advanced
SU-24D jet bombers to Libya
— a move that has deeply
angered , Washington while
raising revived suspicions
about true Soviet intentions.
The senior U.S. official ac-
companying Baker on the trip
to Moscow told American
reporters that the Soviets
could start rethinking their
position toward the Middle
East "by not supplying Libya
with destabilizing weapons
such as the bombers they've
recently supplied them."
Other influential voices in
Washington are saying the
same thing.
Tom Dine, executive direc-
tor of the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC), the pro-Israeli lobby-
ing organization in Washing-
ton, told the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee last
week that if the Soviets are
sincere in their desire to
cooperate peacefully with the
United States, they should
promote joint efforts to ban
chemical and gas warfare in
the region, as proposed by
Israel.
"If the superpowers are
serious about bringing the
global spread of chemical
weapons under control, they
must set a good example,"
said Dine. "For most of the
postwar period, superpower
co-operation regarding the
development and transfer of
chemical weapons materiel
has been extremely unlikely,
given divergent American
and Soviet geopolitical
interests.
