New U.S.

policy

could

alter Ar
By The Associated Press
President Anwar Sadat of
Egypt indicated yesterday that
the Arabs should alter their oil
embargo of the United States
because Washington "has adopt-
ed a new policy" in the Mideast.
Sadat's comment at an Algiers
news conference came as Is-
raeli Premier Golda Meir won
parliamentary approval for her
agreement to pull Israeli forces
back from the Suez Canal, clear-
ing the way for separation of the
Egyptian and Israeli armies to
begin Friday.
IN WASHINGTON, U.S. Secre-
Itary of State Henry Kissinger
told a news conference that the
unrestricted flow of Arab oil to
the United States may resume in
less than two months as a result
of the Egyptian-Israeli troop
agreement.
Sadat said he can "now sin-
cerely say that the United States
has adopted a new policy, that
there is a significant, though not
total, change."
Asked if the Arab embargo of
oil to the United States should be
modified, Sadat replied:
"FOR EVERY change in the
American position, it is neces-
AP Photo sary for the Arabs to make an
identical change toward the
United States."
.uin Sadat said three months ago
Rouge i- that the U.S. position in the
is mouth. Middle East was "fundamentally
pro-Israeli, under pretext of a
balance of forces in the region."
Arab newspapers have said
recently that Sadat, now on a
touir of Arab nations, is support-
ing a U.S. plea that the embargo
be ended as a reward for the

Foreign Minister Sabah el-
Ahmed of Kuwaitrsaid specula-
tion that the U.S. embargo would
be ended was premature because
"Israel has failed to declare its
intentions to withdraw from all
Arabterritories and thedUnited
States has not committed itself
to pressure Israel to give up
Arab territories."

KING FAISAL of Saudi Arabia
stressed in a report carried by
the Lebanese newspaper An Na
har that the disengagement ac-
cord "should not be separate
from the question of total Israeli
withdrawal."
Arab news analysts said Fais-
al's stand indicated he would not
terminate the embargo on the
'basis of the Egyptian-Israeli dis-
engagement agreement.

VP ON ERASURES:
Nixon's innocence defende

WASHINGTON, (Reuter) -
Secretary of State Henry Kissin-
ger indicated yesterday a new
U. S. position as a referee of the
Middle East conflict, rather than
simply a supporter of Israel.
At the same time he warned
the Arabs that the United States,
in light of the American - spon-
sored agreement between Egypt
and Israel to disengage their
forces, expects an early end to
the current oil embargo.
"I would . . . think that fail-
ure to end the embargo in a rea-
sonable time would be highly
inappropriate and would raise
serious questions of confidence
in our minds with respect to the
Arab nations with whom we have
dealt on this issue," Kissinger
said.
HOLDING HIS first news con-
ference since his hectic shut-
tling last week between Aswan
and Tel Aviv and back helping
to work out the Egyptian-Israeli
disengagement of forces, Kissin-
ger said that the United States
was not a guarantor ofthe fragile
Middle East truce but would in-
evitably be drawn in if new con-
flict erupted.
"Our judgement of who violat-
ed the agreement will affect the
course that we will pursue," the
Secretary of State warned.
Kissinger volunteered his good
offices to arrange a truce be-

tween Syria and Israel with the
same "seriousness" as the dis-
agreement he had negotiated be-
tween Israel. and Egypt.
BUT IN raising the possibility
of an American loss of confidence
in Arab goodwill because of the
continuing embargo, Kissinger
appeared to be hinting that con-
tinued American efforts in secur-
ing a just Middle East peace
would be dependent upon Arab
cooperation in supplying oil.
Kissinger confirmed that the
troop separation agreement be-
tween Israel and Egypt contain-
ed a number of unpublished un-
derstandings that he had pre-
sented to both sides.
He declined to say what the un-
derstandings were but Israel is
reported to have been givenas-
surances of U. S. support that
the Baba-El Manden blockade in
the Red Sea will be lifted by
the Egyptians and that Israeli-
bound cargoes will be allowed to
pass through the Suez Canal
when it is opened.
KISSINGER SAID he had giv-
en assurances of the same na-
ture to Egypt.
Kissinger said of his own role
that though both parties found
it easier to work through an in-
termediary, he hoped he would
be "less crucial" in the follow-
ing negotiations.

WASHINGTON (P)-Vice Pres-
ident Gerald Ford said yesterday
he knows President Nixon had,
nothing to do with the 181-
minute erasure of a key Water-
gate tape.
The reason, he told a news con-
ference, is a one-hour, 45-minute
conversation he had Monday with
Nixon. Based on what Nixon told
him, Ford said, "I do know the
President was not involved," in
the erasure.
The vice president defended
last week's, speech in which he
said a small group of political
enemies was out to impeach the
President as "the truth," saying
"As long as I tell the truth ..-.
my credibility is not eroded at
all." , -
HE SAID he told the President
there is "a coordinated, well-
financed, skillful effort on the
part of some organizations to
oust him.
"I think he is fully cognizant
of the various polls, he is fully
cognizant of what some members
are saying" and what some or-
ganizations are doing, Ford
added.
Ford also said: "I have not
indicated there was an'organized
effort in the Congress."
FORD SAID:
- "It would be unwise and im-
proper for the White House to
release" transcripts of conversa-
tions bewteen President Nixon

and former presidential aide
John Dean that Senate GOP
Leader Hugh Scott said show
Nixon's innocence.
The reason,'Ford said, is that
these matters are before the
courts and grand juries.
-"The President is not going
to resign," and Ford added "the
President would be very unwise
to resign. It would be very
wrong for him to do so, particu-
larly since I believe he is not
guilty."
-The energy crisis, which he
said is "painfully real" rather
than contrived is "the No. 1 con-
cern" of Americans. He added
that "unsubstantiated charges"
that it is contrived threaten to
undermine successful voluntary
efforts to conserve fuel.
Ford was asked about his
statement last week that nim-
peachable grounds were lacking,
even if Nixon were involved in
the 18 -minute erasure on a tape
of a conversation between the
President and former aide H. R.
Haldeman.
"I do not believe that the
President was involved at all.
I do not know who was involved.
I do know the President was not
involved," Ford said.
ASKED HOW HE knew, he re-
ferred to the Monday meeting
and said that "I know from
these conversations that the Pres-
ident had no prior knowledge of
the Watergate break-in, took no
part in the coverup and was not
part of any of these allegations
