WASHINGTON (A) -President
Johnson yesterday described the
blockade of the Gulf of Aqaba to
Israel shipping by Egypt as "il-
legal and potentially disastrous to
the cause of peace."
Johnson said the United States
considers the gulf to be an inter-
national waterway.
"The right of free, innocent
passage of the international water-
way is a vital interest of the in-
ternational community," Johnson
said in a statement.
"The government of the United

States is seeking clarification o

Johnson said the United State

frontation," he added.
