Brussels (JTA) — The for-
eign minister of Belgium,
Mark Eyskens, is ready and
willing to receive Palestine
Liberation Organization
leader Yassir Arafat should
he come to Brussels for polit-
ical or social reasons, the
Belgian press reported over
the weekend.
Local newspapers quoted
an interview with Eyskens
that appeared in the semi-
official Egyptian newspaper
Al-Ahram. A Foreign Min-
istry spokesman confirmed
the story.
Eyskens met Arafat in
December during a visit to
Tunis, where the PLO has
its headquarters.
He was quoted as telling
Al-Ahram, "I confirm to you
without hesitation that we
would receive Arafat in
Brussels if he comes here on
the occasion of a political or
social forum.
"There is nothing in our
politics that can prevent
such a visit," he added.
An official visit to Brussels
would be a publicity coup for
Arafat, who has been largely
shunned in Western capi-
tals. The PLO chief did make
an official visit to France
last year and made an ap-
pearance at European
Parliament in Strasbourg.
The Foreign Ministry
spokesman said Arafat
would be welcome in

Belgium "because of the
concessions made these last
years, such as the recogni-
tion of Israel's right to ex-
ist."
He was referring to
statements made by Arafat
at the November 1988
meeting of the Palestine Na-
tional Council in Algiers and
at a special session of the
U.N. General Assembly in
Geneva the following month.
The spokesman said there
is no official invitation to
Arafat from Belgium at the
moment. But the foreign
minister would meet him if
the PLO leader happened to <
attend "a colloquium or
something else" here.
No colloquium is planned
at this time by Belgian or
other European organiza-
tions based here.
The PLO representative in
Belgium, Shawki Armali,
said any invitation to Arafat
to come to Brussels, where
the European Community is
headquartered, "must be at
a high level."
He explained it had to
come from a government,
not from sympathizers or an
organization, because Arafat
"is the president of the state
of Palestine."
Political sources said the
government is studying the.
possibility of raising the
status of the PLO's repre-
sentation here.

U.S.: No Proof Israel Sold
Bombs To Ethiopia

Washington (JTA) — The
State Department said last
week that it has "no clear
physical evidence" that
Israel has sent cluster bombs
to Ethiopia.
The New York Times
reported that U.S. officials
"strongly suspect" such
sales. In December, former
President Jimmy Carter
said Ethiopia had received
cluster bombs "from one of
our Middle East allies," but
did not name which country.
"The truth is that we have
no clear physical evidence
that Israel has provided such
weapons to the government
of Ethiopia," department
spokeswoman Margaret
Tutwiler said at her daily
briefing.
An Ethiopian Embassy of-
ficial here said last
week,"It's news to us. We
don't know anything about
this."
The Ethiopian official

complained about negative
stories coming just a few
months after the restoration
of ties with Israel in October.
"We would like to develop
(relations with Israel) in an
all-around manner, like any
sovereign country," the offi-
cial said.
Israel currently supplies
small arms to Ethiopia, said
a State Department official,
who requested anonymity.
Middle East experts have
speculated that in exchange,
Israel has received promises
that 10,000 to 15,000 Ethio-
pian Jews seeking to make
aliyah will receive favorable
consideration from the
Marxist government.
The department official
said that the United States
has not received any com-
plaints from rebel forces in
Ethiopia that cluster bombs
are being deployed against
them. "They would have
made a big stink about it if
