Carter continues Vietnam trade embargo

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter, rebuffing persistent signals of
friendship from Vietnam, is quietly
extending the U.S. trade embargo
against Hanoi.
In its early months, the Carter
administration showed considerable
interest in friendly ties with Hanoi, but
it now seems cool to the idea.
THE MAJOR reason for the
continuation of the embargo is that the
administration is anxious not to offend
China, which looks upon Vietnam as an
instrument of Soviet strategic purposes
in Southeast Asia, officials say.
And, they say, even though there
have been indications from Vietnam
that it no longer insists on a U.S. aid
commitment prior to the establishment
of normal diplomatic ties, there has
been no official notice from Vietnam to
that effect.
Under a law passed two years ago,
the President is required each year to
review restrictions on trade which have
been imposed against various
countries. He can lift such restrictions
when he chooses.

Register disclosed that the restrictions
against Vietnam are being extended.
Carter was required to make a decision
on lifting or extending the embargo by
today.
Vietnam, plagued by conflicts with
neighboring China and Cambodia, has
been seeking outside diplomatic and
economic support, and Washington has
been one of its principal targets.
A recent sign of this came during a
trip to Vietnam late last month by Rep.
G. V. Montgomery (D-Miss.), and a
congressional delegation.
MONTGOMERY, who has led a
campaign to find the remains of
missing Americans in Vietnam and has
made 11 trips to Hanoi, said he was
surprised by the warmth of the
reception on his recent visit.

"The attitude has changed totally,"
he said.
Montgomery said Vietnam has
dropped all of its preconditions for
normal relations. However, State
Department officials say they have not
been so informed officially by Hanoi.
THE ADMINISTRATION says it is
willing to exchange ambassadors with
Vietnam without preconditions and that
the trade embargo could be lifted
immediately thereafter.
Officials concede there are sound
economic arguments for lifting the
embargo. Trade with Vietnam could
help cut back on the U.S. trade deficit,
expected to pass the $30 billion mark
this year.
The Vietnamese are interested in
U.S. Oil technology, and their aviation

and transportation industries, among
others, are in need of replacement
parts for American-made machinery
left behind after the war.
Howard McClellan, chairman of the
U.S.-Vietnam Trade Council, says
Washington's reluctance to begin trade
with Hanoi only helps entrench the
position of U.S. trade competitors.
"We were trading with our old foes,
Germany and Japan, within three
years after the end of World War II. We
should apply the lessons learned from
that experience to Vietnam," he said.
The trade embargo against Vietnam
is total except for certain humanitarian
items, such as food shipped by relief
groups which the Treasury Department
sometimes approves.

MILAN, Italy (AP) - Corrado
'lunni, wanted in the kidnap-murder
f former Premier Aldo Moro and
eputed to be the new leader of the.Red
rigades terrorist gang, was arrested
esterday evening in Milan, police said.
They said Alunni, 30, was caught by
urprise in a terrorist hideout in a
uburban residential district near the
alpensa Airport when four police of-
icers rang the door bell. The officers
inted pistols at Alunni as soon as he
pened the door, police sgid.
Police said they found "large amoun-
of firearms, ammunition and impor-
nt documents" in the apartment.
THE AREA AROUND the high-rise
partment building was sealed off.
lunni was held at the central police
eadquarters for questioning, police
aid.
His name was mentioned by in-
estigators immediately after Moro
as kidnapped and his five bodyguards
hot dead in a street ambush March 16
n rome. An arrest warrant was pen-
'ding against Alunni on charges of
having taken part in the ambush and
the May 9 slaying of the Christian
Democrat politician.
Alunni has been considered the
eader of the most radical and deter-
mined group inside the Red Brigades.
POLICE OFTEN referred to him as
the new leader of the terrorist.
rganization after the arrest of Renato
urcio, who is serving a 15-year jail
:erm for terrorist activities.
Alunni was born in Rome, but worked
or seven years in Milan at the Sit-
Siemens electronics firm, a favorite
target of terrorist attacks over the past
ew years.
He had never been arrested before
,lthough there were two more arrest
warrants for him, one in the north
Italian town of, Pavia on charges of
subversive activities and another on
charges of helping Curcio escape from
he jail in Casale Monferrato in 1975.
ON FEB. 15 of that year several
terrorists led an armed raid on the jail
and freed Curcio, who was recaptured
mne year later.
A photograph released by police at
he time of the Moro kidnapping pic-
ured Alunni with black, greasy hair, a
ong moustache and glasses. A police
ource said Alunni's appearance had
hanged considerably since.
Police had staked out the apartment
or several days but did not know the
an inside was Alunni, officers said.
ources said police were surprised
hen Alunni identified himself.
Alunni moved to Milan in 1968 when
e went to work for Sit-Siemens. When
n Rome he lived with members of his
amity in a working class district.
