PLO may accept Israel

iCuonuines trom Pege i1
al Council by the central coun-
cil, the policy - making body
which is scheduled to meet
Aug. 16 in Damascus.
PRESIDENT C A R T E R
said the PLO "may adopt U.N.
Resolutions 242 which does re-
cognize Israel's right to exist
securely and in peace, with se-
cure borders."
"If the Palestinians will re-
cognize the applicability of the
U.N. resolutions, then that
would open up a new opportun-
ity for us to start discussions
with them and also open up an
avenue that they might partici-
pate in the Geneva confer-
ence," Carter said.
"But whether they'll do that,
we don't know," he said.
It is Vance's belief, his
spokesman said ,that "accept-

ance of Resolution 242 has the
effect of abrogating the cove-
nant (PLO charter) in so far
as the right of Israel to exist."
Saudi Arabian Foreign Minis-
ter Saud Al Faisal informed
Vance there will be "an an-
nouncement of change in their
(PLO) position on 242 coming."
The Vance spokesman said
this was the "most specific"
indication the United States
had of an impending change by
the PLO. U. S. officials said
the change could be made at
the Aug. 16 PLO national coun-
cil meeting in Damascus.
Carter, speaking to reporters
at his home in Plains, Ga., said
the United States had been deal-
ing with the Palestinians
through Syria, Saudi Arabia,
Joran and Sgypt.
CARTER SAID the chances

for reconvening peace talks in
Geneva remain about the same
as they were before. "There
might be other obstacles to it,"
Carter said without elabora-
tion.,
Hours before news of an im-
pending change, Begin said that
the PLO "should be put out of
the pale of human civilization."

Ie said Israel had the right to
veto PLO participation and the
United States was bound to go
along under a 1975 agreement.
"A right exists in order to
b used," Begin told a group of
American fundraisers. "We are
using that right and we shall
use it ,"

Begin also confirmed that ts
raeli arined forces have inter
vened on the side of Lebanese
Christians in their running war
with Palestinians in southern
Lebanon. He said Israeli artil
lery shelled Moslem forces af
ter they bombarded the Chrts
tian enclave along Israel's nor
there border.

Begin mum on U.S., PLO talks

JERUSALEM (At') - Israeli
Prime Minister Menahem Be-
gin refused comment yesterday
on U. S. statements about pos-
sible Palestinian recognition
of Israel.
Begin was approached for
comment by Israeli television
crews but drove off in his offic-

ial car without making a state-
ment. He and other top offic-
ials had been meeting to pre-
pare for the arrival today of
Secretary Cyrus Vance.

acceptance of a 1967 U. N. Re I
solution
State television quoted an un
identified member of Begin
cabinet as saying it made no
difference whether the PLO re
cognizes U. N. Security Counc
Resolution 242.
Sources close to the gover
ment said the PLO maneuver
might be a "small trick," g
ing the impression of modera
tion while still refusing expice
itly to accept Israel's right t
exist.
BEFORE THE U. S. an-
nouncement, Begin said the
United States had a "written
agreement" with Israel that
gives Israel a veto over chang
ing the composition of the Mid
east conference.
"It is a clear statement ht-
the U. S. government that oni
with our approval can there
be a change in the composition
of the Geneva peace confer
ence," Begin told a group of
fundraisers for Israel bonds.
Invitations to the Geneta'
peace conference in 1973 also
held that each participant must
be acceptable to all others
OF THE VETO power, Begin
said, "a right exists in order
to be used . . . we are using
that right and we shall use it.
"We don't agree to the
change to include that organic
ation of, genocidists," Begin
said.,
The prime minister said the
PLO covenant would call for
the evacuation of nearly all of
Israel's 3 million Jews since
thev were born after what the
PLO calls the "Zionist inva-
sion" in the 1920's.
"Should we negotiate with
them our destruction? Our de-
parture fromp this land?" Ie-
gin said. "Giving our land to
genocidists? To make it possi-
ble for them to put the knife in
our hearts? To put that knife
into their hands through a so-
called Palestinian state?"
After he poke, wod came
that the United States wash1
be satisfied if the PLO accept-
ed Resolution 242, which states
that all Mideast states have the
right to a secure existence. Tf
United States no longer would
require a change in the PIL
covenane, U. S. officials said.
