"Second, Mr. Shamir
cannot reasonably deny the
Palestinian delegation the
right to discuss final status
during the initial talks on
elections. What he needs
from the Palestinians is a
commitment to agree on and
carry out elections before
consummating talks on final
status."
The newspaper said that
Arafat, for his part, "knows
Israeli leaders can't let him
be seen to choose or instruct
the Palestinian delegates.
Nor can he expect Israelis to
resolve the issue of Palesti-
nian statehood until both
sides have built up con-
fidence in one another —
that is, after the elections
and a period of Arab self-rule
in the territories."
The State Department also
rebuked Shamir for propos-
ing that large numbers of
Soviet Jewish immigrants
be resettled on the West
Bank.
Spokeswoman Margaret
Tutwiler said that any U.S.
funds provided to Israel will
continue to be restricted for
use only "inside the green
lines," and not in territories
won during the 1967 Six-
Day War.
"We have now seen the
text of the Prime Minister's
comments, and our
characterization of them is
that, frankly, they were not
helpful," Tutwiler said.
"Om- position is clear," she
said, reading from a
prepared statement. "We do
not think that building set-
tlements or putting even
more settlers in the ter-
ritories promotes the cause
of peace. We do not provide
U.S. government resources
or funds for settlement of
new immigrants in the oc-
cupied territories. Our cur-
rent program is explicitly
limited to Israel, inside the
green lines."
Responding to questions,
Tutwiler expressed hope
that the Israeli government
would not use any of its own
funds for West Bank set-
tlements which might
become available as a result
of additional U.S. financial
assistance.
Israel's critics in Washing-
ton have often pointed out
that Israel can move funds
around from various budget
categories if more U.S. aid is
made available.
"We would certainly hope
that it is not going on," she
said. "That is not our
policy."
