Vance hints of arms compromise

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Carter
administration insisted yesterday the
basic terms of its sale of jet fighters to
Egypt, Israel and Saudi Arabia will not
be changed, but there was growing talk
of a compromise that would later send
additional warplanes to Israel.
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance told
the House International Relations
Committee that private negotiations
are continuing with House and Senate
nembers and that "some members on
both sides" have suggested such a
VANCE HAD met earlier in the day
with members of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, and Sen. Jacob
Javits (R-N.Y.), left the session saying,
"I believe we're on a road which could
lead to a settlement."

The senators said they had agreed not
to discuss details of the talks but Sen.
Clifford Case (R-N.J.), asked whether
more fighters for Israel figured in the
compromise talks, replied: "If that
isn't one of the elements, I don't know
what we're talking about."
President Carter wants to sell $4.8
billion worth of jet fighters. The deal
calls for the sale of 15 F-15s to Israel, 60
F-15s to Saudi Arabia and 50 less
sophisticated F-5Es to Egypt.
VANCE TOLD the House panel that
negotiations are under way "to see if
there is something that could be done
that would be helpful" to provide
assurances that aircraft sold to Arab
states will not be used against Israel.
"We're having discussions with
members on both sides of the hill and
those discussions are continuing,"

Vance said. "That's the state of play."
When Vance was asked whether such
assurance might include selling Israel
20 additional F-15 jet fighters at a later
date, he replied, "some members on
both sides have suggested that. That's
all I can say."
VANCE REPEATED several times
that as far as the administration is con-
cerned, the main components of the
sale package "stand on their own two
feet" and will not be changed. "The
proposals are as they are," he said.
The suggestion of selling an ad-
ditional 20 F-15s to Israel is aimed at
equalizing the Israeli and Saudi F-15
force at 60 each.
In response to questions Vance

repeated Saudi assurances that the F-
15s sold Saudi Arabia will not be based
at fields adjacent to Israel. He offered
these other assurances as well:
-Despite "loose talk," to the con-
trary, the government of Saudi Arabia
has given "every assurance" that if
Congress rejects the planes deal it will
not retaliate by raising the price of oil
or by undermining the stability of the
-The planes sold to any Middle
Eastern nation, including Israel, will
not carry the equipment needed to
enable them to drop nuclear bombs.
-The Saudi Arabian government has
given assurances that it does not intend
to buy additional combat planes from
other suppliers, including France,
while it is obtaining and receiving F-
15s. The last F-15s are not scheduled to
be delivered in Saudi Arabia until 1984.
