WASHINGTON - Egyptian President
Hosni Mubarak told President Reagan
yesterday that time is running out for peace
in the Middle East and the United States has a
special responsibility to make sure the
"golden opportunity" is not missed.
The White House meeting between the two
presidents produced agreement that the im-
passe in negotiations on the withdrawal of all
foreign forces from Lebanon casts a dark
shadow over the chances of the wider peace
process moving forward.
"WE REVIEWED the situation in Lebanon
and I assured President Mubarak of my
determination to support the territorial in-
tegrity, sovereignty and independence of
Lebanon to the end," Reagan said. "To that
end, there must be an early withdrawal of all
Mubarak mentioned only the need for the
withdrawal of Israeli forces. But a U.S. of-
ficial said it is understood that as soon as the
Israelis agree to pull out their estimated

given to reaching an
agreement to the with-
drawal of Israeli forces.'

30,000 troops, the Syrian and Palestine
Liberation forces will follow quickly.
There was no indication that Mubarak
asked Reagan to suspend U.S. military or
economic aid to Israel, although such a move
by the United States is known to be under con-
BEFORE withdrawing, Israel wants the
Lebanese government to agree on diplomatic
and economic ties. Israel also wants to keep
some troops at monitoring stations in
Lebanon as a precaution against renewed in-
filtration by Palestinian guerrillas.
The Reagan administration is opposed to a
peace treaty between the two countries at this
point, and has proposed U.S. troops instead of
Israelis be stationed at the monitoring
stations in the border area.
"I welcomed the reaffirmation of the
United States commitment to support the
territorial integrity, independence and
sovereignty of Lebanon," Mubarak said.
"The time factor is crucial to the success of
our endeavors. (Top priority must be given to
reaching an agreement to the withdrawal of
A U.S. official said Mubarak set no time
limit, but the U.S. official said, "It is
measured in rponths." _
Mubarak appears to be working hard and
effectively to bring Jordan and represen-
tatives of the Palestinians into the Middle
East peace process, U.S. officials said.
Five people were killed and eight others injured when this B-52 bomber burned yesterday. The
explosion occurred during a routine maintenance check at Grand Forks Air Force Base near
Grand Forks, North Dakota.

Earlier, White House spokesman
WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal
Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker told
Congress yesterday that the nation is
poised for a sustained economic
recovery but the huge federal deficit
still "clouds the future."
"The bigger the deficit, the more
pressure there will be on interest
rates," Volcker said, adding that high
interest rates "will work against
growthin business investment and
housing," hampering recovery.
VOLCKER, IN testimony before the
Joint Economic Committee, did not of-
fer specific suggestions for whittling
the deficits that many economists say
could climb to $200 billion a year and
above if no action is taken.
He offered kind words, however, for
President Reagan's proposal of a
"standby" tax increase that would take
effect if deficits remained above $100
billion by fiscal 1986.
Passing such legislation now could be
"a possible and practical technique"
for reducing the deficit, he said. But he
added that it is up to Congress and the
administration, and not the Federal
Reserve Board, to deal with the deficit
through action on spending or taxes.
VOLCKER HAD less kind words for a
law, supported by Reagan, to "index"
tax rates beginning in 1985.
