MOSCOW (UPI) - Soviet President
Yuri Andropov reiterated yesterday the
suspended Geneva nuclear arms talks
could resume - provided the United St-
ates removes its nuclear missiles from
Andropov's comments idn't change
the Soviet position and reiterated his
last statement on the issue Nov. 24, the
day after Soviet negotiators walked out
of the Geneva talks on limiting
medium-range missiles in Europe.
"WE HOLD that the prevailing
situation is not irreversible," Andropov
said in a statement carried by the of-
ficial Soviet news agency Tass in
response to a message from a French
disarmament group, Appeal of 100.
"The Soviet leadership has already
stated in utter clarity that if readiness
is expressed on the part of the NATO
countries to return to the situation
which had existed prior to the start of
the deployment of U.S. medium-range
missiles in Europe, the U.S.S.R. will
likewise be ready to do that," he said.
The Soviet Union broke off the missile
talks Nov. 23 after the West German
parliament approved deployment of
U.S. Pershing-2 missiles.
ANDROPOV, who has not been seen
in public since Aug. 18 and is suffering
from an undisclosed ailment, blamed
the United States for the suspension of
"The United States turned the talks in
Geneva into a screen for covering up its
plans of deploying at all cost the new
first-strike nuclear weapons in western
Europe," the reply said.
"When the United States started the
actual deployment of its missiles, con-
tinuation of the talks in these conditions
would be tantamount to complicity in
deceiving the European and world
ANDROPOV said, "The United
States and those of its NATO partners
who supported the deployment of new
American missiles on European soil
bear the entire responsibility for the
situation that has developed."
In Washington, the White House
prepared yesterday to fuel suspicions
on-Capitol Hill of Soviet arms treaty,
violations, although President Reagan
will sound a different note in a foreign
policy speech next week.
Administration officials said mem-,
bers of Congress will be briefed today
on classified evidence about allegations
that the Kremlin has breached terms of
existing arms agreements.
Although Reagan has indicated he
shares this view, aides said the touchy
matter of treaty violations will be
played down when he delivers a major
speech Monday on the state of U.S.-

Chrysler to sue GM - Toyota
WASHINGTON - Chrysler Corp. carried its battle against the proposed.
joint carmaking venture between General Motors Corp. and Toyota Motor
Corp. into court yesterday, filing an antitrust lawsuit claiming the deal i
GM and Toyota, the first- and third-largest automakers in the world, hop.
to start producing up to 250,000 Toyota-designed cars annually for 12 years
starting late this year.
"The joint venture will have a devastating effect on competition in the U.,1
automobile market," Richard Goodyear, Chrysler's vice president and"
general counsel, said at a news conference. "We believe it violates the
nation's antitrust laws."
Chrysler filed its suit against GM and Toyota after the Federal Trad
Commission last month granted tentative approval to the proposal to make-
subcompact cars at an idle GM plant in Fremont, Calif. The suit was filed i
U.S. District Court in Washington.
GM Chairman Roger Smith defended the joint venture and said its legalit 4

Oil lease program to be cut back::
WASHINGTON - Interior Secretary William Clark outlined a play,
yesterday that could cut back some of James Watt's massive program to,
lease virtually the entire U.S. coastline for offshore oil and gas exploration..,
But 'Clark stressed his program does not alter the Reagan ad
ministration's basic policy of "expeditiously" exploring the Atlanticf
Pacific, Gulf and Alaskan coasts for oil and gas.
"The purpose of these changes in offshore leasing will be to increase state
and public participation, to identify and resolve issues much earlier and to,
better focus on areas where the oil industry truly.seeks to search and toi
produce," said Clark.
Clark had hinted earlier in the week that the administration was drawing,
up changes in the plan unveiled by Watt in 1981 to lease oil and gas rights to 1 r
billion offshore acres over five years.

new hope of regaining the seat in their battle to keep control of the Senate.
The 42-year-old lawmaker did not disclose the nature of his ailment, which
he said was diagnosed 34 months ago.
Speaking to 800 people who jammed a Beacon Hall auditorium, Tsongas.
said he could have run, won and served again, but did not want to neglect his,1
"This is not an easy decision," Tsongas said. "But under the circumstan

In his years in Washington, Tsongas has become known as a liberal who
pushed for "compassionate realism" without big spending for socia
State dept. disputes White
House El Salvador death figures
WASHINGTON - State Department officials yesterday disputed a White
House claim that Salvadoran leftists probably are responsible for more
political murders than right-wing death squads.
White House spokesman Larry Speakes, citingwhat he called a State
Department estimate, said Wednesday that leftists were responsible fo
"perhaps 40 percent" of political murders in El Salvador, that rightists were
responsible for 30 percent to 40 percent and the rest could not be blamed brn
either side in the civil war.
Speakes' figures do not square with those of the U.S. Embassy in San
Salvador, which has acknowledged it does not know who is to blame for most
of the political murders.
Overall, Salvadoran human rights groups cataloging the political murders
estimate that since the civil war began four years ago, about 47,00people.
have died. They say government security forces and rightist death squads
are responsible for about 39,000 of the deaths.
