Vance's Syrian trip postponed
(Continued from Pagel1)

finishing houses, warehouses and roads
for a naval base. A few years ago, the
Saudis barely had a navy. A mile up the
coast, the Saudis are creating an entire
town and industrial area from scratch.
The town is intended to be an exam-
ple of a turn-about for the Saudi
economy which, as one official put it,
"exports oil and imports everything
else," to one that sells finished produc-
ts.

PETROCHEMICALS will be the
main product in the town.
Vance, his trailing pack of reporters
and Saudi and Aramco officials were all
treated to a lavish lunch at the seaside
villa of Prince Sultan, the defense
minister.
Scores of servants scurried about as
they loaded the tables with roast lambs,
platters piled with vegetables and
meats, and an array of desserts. More

than two-thirds of the food was un-
touched after the guests were finished.
As Vance toured the headquarters of
Aramco, a university and a naval base
on the Gulf Coast, the Americans
received word that Hussein of Jordan
had held a news conference in which he
said he would "close no doors" to the
possibility of joining the Egyptian-
Israeli talks, but that the Camp David
accords would have to be drastically
modified before he could take part.
HUSSEIN'S position was just about.
what Vance naa expectea after two
days of talks with the Jordanian
monarch. Since Vance also spoke to the
leadership in Saudi Arabia, trying to
sell the idea of the direct talks,
Hussein's statement indicated that the
Saudis had not exercised-their veto on
his entering the talks. The Saudis hold

their veto as a byproduct of their im-
mense oil wealth.
Another visible lesson for Vance, with
foreign policy implications, is that
Saudi Arabia is a slumbering industrial
giant, on the verge of waking. Until
Saudi Arabia crosses the threshold of
the industrial age, it will be dependent
on American technology plus cheap
labor from other countries, such as
South Korea.
American officials estimate that
there are nearly as many foreign
technicians and laborers in Saudi
Arabia as there are Saudis - nearly six
million of each.
Vance has no real hope of convincing
Syrian President Assad to drop his op-
position to the Camp David agreement
between Egypt and Israel. But he is
determined to maintain U.S. com-
munications with the Syrian president.
