U.S. Regrets
Deportations

United Nations (JTA) —
The United States declined to
exercise its veto last week to
block a Security Council
resolution criticizing Israel
for deporting eight Palesti-
nian activists from the West
Bank and Gaza Strip on June
29.
The resolution, adopted by
a vote of 14-0, says the Securi-
ty Council "deeply regrets"
the June 29 deportations and
calls on Israel to discontinue
the practice.
U.S. Ambassador Thomas
Pickering said the American
position on the issue is clear.
The United States has spoken
out numerous times against
deportations.
Pickering said the United
States abstained because it
did not think that raising the
issue in the Security Council
now would help reduce ten-
sions or restore calm in the
region.
"Neither more deportations
nor more resolutions are like-
ly to serve the efforts in which
we all share our responsibili-
ty to bring the parties to the
negotiating table," the
American envoy said.
Sources here said a U.S.
veto was avoided by
substituting the words "deep-
ly regrets" for the word
deplores.

Soviet Envoy
Walks Out

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The
highest-ranking Soviet
diplomat in Israel walked out
of a reception last Wednesday,
saying that he was offended
by the political overtones and
anti-Soviet sentiments ex-
pressed by some of those
attending.
Georg Martirosov, the
senior member of the Soviet
consular delegation, stormed
out of a reception honoring
Jewish athletes from Soviet
Lithuania who are par-
ticipating in the 13th Mac-
cabiah, the Jewish Olympic-
style sports competitions held
every four years.
Martirosov, referring to
Natan Sharansky and other
former refusenik activists
who used the reception as an
occasion to attack Soviet
policy and urge the Kremlin
to allow all Jews to emigrate,
complained that the Mac-
cabiah was being politicized.
Martirosov said he "strong-
ly opposes attempts by some
people to use sports for
politics." He said the remarks
put the Soviet Lithuanian
athletes in an embarrassing
position.
