completely," Peres told the Cabinet.
"Our relations with the United
States are based on solid foundations
of deep friendship, close affinity and
mutual trust," Peres said.
SECRETARY of State George
Shultz, en route to South America,
said, "I think this is an excellent
statement and we are satisfied by it
and we welcome it. We have full con-
fidence in Israel's determination and
ability to pursue this case down to the
last detail and to bring those respon-
sible to account."
It was Israel's first apology since
the Federal Bureau of Investigation
arrested Pollard and accused the 31-
year-old American Jew of selling
military secrets to Israel for $50,000
over the last 18 months.
His wife, Anne Henderson-Pollard,
was arrested the next day and
charged with unauthorized possession
of national defense documents.
Peres' government hopes its
belated apology to the United States
for using a U.S. Navy analyst as a spy
will stem the controversy and prevent
lasting damage to U.S.-Israeli ties.
THE STRAIN caused by the arrest
of Pollard, was the worst since the rift
created when Israel invaded Lebanon
in June 1982.
Officials and commentators ex-
pressed fear that a continuing flap
would affect Israel's relations with
the U.S. Congress, which has been
generous in providing economic and
military aid totaling $4 billion in 1985.
Pending legislation includes a
proposal to reduce interest rates on
the repayment of debts from 11 percent
to 7 percent. The change could have a
major impact on Israel's economic
recovery program by saving the
treasury an estimated $700 million, of-
CONGRESS has also supported
Israel on key policy questions such as
a U.S. arms sale to Jordan that had
been proposed by President Reagan's
administration as an enticement to
the Arabs for peacemaking.
There was also concern the Pollard
case might provoke a change in public
opinion that would rebound on the
Jewish community in the United
States, which numbers about 6
"The shadow cast by the Pollard af-
fair on U.S. Jewry is no less severe

In unusually tough language, the
State Department criticized Israel
Friday for failing to "provide the full
and prompt cooperation we requested
a week ago."
President Reagan said in his weekly
radio address Saturday that the
United States will "root out and
prosecute the spies of any nation." He
did not mention specific names.
