Chicago (JTA) — Mexican
President Carlos Salinas de
Gortari told an appreciative
Jewish audience here that
his country would gladly
vote to reverse the resolu-
tion denigrating Zionism as
a form of racism that Mexico
supported in the U.N. Gen-
eral Assembly 16 years ago.
If a vote to rescind comes
to the floor of the General
Assembly, "Mexico will
show it is a friend of the
State of Israel," Mr. Salinas
declared at a reception given
in his honor by the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee.
"We in Mexico have great
respect for the State of Israel
as a sovereign nation and a
member of the international
community," Mr. Salinas
said. "We have strong dip-
lomatic ties that we value
very much."
Mexico supported the 1975
resolution. But in recent
years, Salinas and other
government officials have
indicated privately their
willingness to support at-
tempts to repeal it.
Mexico is the latest of
several Latin American
countries to support the
repeal effort. Last month,
the General Assembly of
Panama voted unanimously
to call on the U.N. General
Assembly to rescind the
1975 resolution.
Other Latin American
nations to have called for
repeal of the infamous
resolution include Colombia,
Argentina, Ecuador,
Guatemala, Peru, Uruguay
and Venezuela, according to
the Anti- Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith.
The - Mexican chief of state
is barnstorming the United
States in favor of the propos-
ed Free Trade Agreement
treaty, which would allow
the freer flow of investments
and goods across the Mex-
ican, United States and
Canadian borders.
The president spoke fondly
of Mexico's Jews, stressing
their contributions to the
country's commerce and cul-
ture.
Alfredo Achar, president of
the Central Jewish Com-
munity of Mexico-, said
50,000 Jews live in that
country, 43,000 of them in
Mexico City, the capital.
The country has four Or-
thodox and three Conser-
vative congregations, and a
Jewish sports center. There
are 11 Jewish day schools,
including two yeshivot and
three which feature Yiddish
programs in addition to
modern Hebrew.
