Vance offers to discuss crises with Bani Sad

WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance offered yesterday to work with the
newly-elected president in Iran to end the crisis
over American hostages and face "the grave
situation" caused by Soviet occupation of
But he said in an Associated Press interview he
could not predict the effect of the election of
Abolhassan Bani-Sadr on the situation at the U.S.
Embassy in Tehran, which was seized by militan-
ts last Nov. 4..
"WE HOPE that Iran will decide to end the
crisis so that it can begin to address the serious
threats and problems Iran faces," Vance said.
These, he added, are not only domestic, "but
from outside'their borders as a result of actions
which the Soviets have taken in invading
Vance reaffirmed U.S. support for the indepen-
dence of Iran and all other countries in the region,
including Afghanistan.

BANI-SADR, elected with some 75 per cent of
the vote, was acting foreign minister after the
seizure of the U.S. Embassy and the._capture of
American hostages there. He was replaced as
foreign minister after trying to arrange
negotiations to settle the dispute.
With U.S. efforts to gain release of the hostages
at a standstill, clearly the Carter administration
hopes Bani-Sadr's election may lead to a set-
"We remain ready to work with the Iranian
leaders towards a solution of the present crisis,"
Vance said.
BANI-SADR called on the United States yester-
day to acknowledge its crimes in Iran as a prelude
to the release of American hostages in Tehran and
rejected an offer of U.S. Military and economic
aid after they are freed, a French newspaper
The daily newsp'aper Le Monde also quoted
Bani-Sadr as saying that while Soviet troops in

neighboring Afghanistan were Iran's most im-
mediate threat, Iran wanted no interference from
either Moscow or Washington.
Vance spoke extensively about the Soviet in-
vasion of Afghanistan in yesterday's interview.
"THERE ARE now some 80,000-plus Soviet ar-
med forces in Afghanistan. They are thus on the
border of Pakistan and Iran and, as such, pose a
potential threat to the neighboring countries."
While Soviet motives are not clear, Vance said,
"they are in a position now geographically where
they constitute a threat both from the standpoint
of possibly fomenting subversion or moving into
the neighboring countries."
Over the long run, Vance said, "it is extremely
difficult, if not impossible, at this stage to deter-
mine what the intentions of the Soviets may be" in
HOWEVER, HE said, "We do see the plain fac-
ts. The plain fact, are very simple:
"The Soviets for the first time in modern history

have moved Soviet armed forces into a neigh-
boring country other than a Warsaw Pact country.
They have moved them into what previously was a
nonaligned state.
"The effect of this is to create a situation which
poses a new set of problems and threats to the
security of the region and to the countries in the
"THIS HAS required a firm and strong response
on the part of the United States and on the part of
other nations."
Iranian revolutionary leader Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini meanwhile was reported in
"completely satisfactory" condition at the Tehran
hospital where he was admitted five days ago for
what doctors called a minor heart ailment.
Doctors said Khomeini was scheduled to be
transferred from the intensive care unit to a
hospital ward where he would spend several more
days resting.

version - passed last week by a 386410
vote - the Senate resolution does not
propose that other games be set up as
an alternative to the Moscow Olympics.
He said it was not included because of
the testimony of a U.S. Olympics Com-
mittee official and three athletes that
such a division of top-level inter-
national sports might permanently
destroy the Olympics process.
THE HOUSE measure calls on th
U.S. Olympics Committee to take nW

organize, alternative games with

CHRISTOPHER SAID that a refusal
to compete in Moscow would "send a

States will only send our athletes to a
civilized country."
Nonetheless, Christopher said the
United States did not intend at present
to invoke passport restrictions to bar
American athletes and spectators fron4
