Aibright faces tough mission in Persian Gulf

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- The United
State's closest ally in the Persian Gulf-- Saudi Arabia
- also could be its toughest challenge in building
support for a military attack on Iraq.
Saudi resistance, spelled out in comments yesterday
by a senior Saudi official, complicates U.S. efforts to
get full cooperation from countries in the region at a
time when Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was
arriving to consult on the stand-off between the United
Nations and Iraq.
"Saudi Arabia will not allow any strikes against Iraq,
under any circumstances, from its soil or bases in Saudi
Arabia, due to the sensitivity of the issue in the Arab and
Muslim world," the Saudi official told The Associated
Press, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Even U.N. Security Council approval of an attack
would not change the Saudi position, the official said.
The United States has plenty of fighter jets and
troops afloat in the Persian Gulf, but it relied heavily

on Saudi and Turkish bases during the 1991 Gulf War.
These days, Turkey, too, is reluctant to allow
itself to be used as a launching pad. Ankara
announced yesterday it would send Foreign
Minister Ismail Cem to Baghdad to help negotiate a
diplomatic end to the standoff over U.N. weapons
inspections.
Iraq has been sparring with U.N. inspectors and the
United States over access to suspected weapons sites,
and U.S. calls for military strikes have been getting
louder in recent weeks.
Bill Richardson, the U.S. ambassador to the United
Nations, said yesterday that he has received commit-
ments from two countries to publicly support the
United States should it decide to attack Iraq.
"The United States will not be alone," Richardson
said during a world forum in Davos, Switzerland. He
refused to identify the countries.
The U.N. inspectors must certify Iraq has destroyed

all of its weapons of mass destruction before the U.N.
Security Council will lift tough economic sanctions
imposed after Iraq invaded neighboring Kuwait in
1990, prompting the Gulf War. The Security Council
insists on unfettered access for its inspectors; Iraq
contends access to some sites, including presidential
palaces, would violate its sovereignty.
Albright explained the U.S. position last night in
talks with the emir of Kuwait, Sheik Jaber al-Ahmed
al-Sabah.
State Department spokesperson James Rubin said
Albright told Kuwaiti officials: "The United States
stood with you when Saddam Hussein attacked you
seven years ago; the United States stands with you in
the face of Saddam's threat today."
Rubin said Albright believes she has "the 100 per-
cent support" of the government of Kuwait.
She is to consult today with leaders of Saudi Arabia
and Bahrain, then fly tomorrow to Egypt.

Ginsburg: Clinton will survive scandal
WASHINGTON - Monica Lewinsky's attorney predicted yesterday that the
debate about whether the former White House intern had an affair with President
Clinton will "go away" and the president will survive unscathed.
"It'll pass," William Ginsburg said in a round of TV talk show appearances. "The
president will remain in office, he'll do a good job ... and I think everything's goir
to be fine."
The White House, apparently agreeing, maintained a confident silence about the
matter. That stood in marked contrast to a week earlier, when Clinton allies were out
in force on TV shows yesterday in defense of an embattled president.
Independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who is investigating the Lewinsky matter,
was back at his office yesterday. With immunity talks between Ginsburg and Starr
at an impasse, Lewinsky was making plans to return to California in the next three
days, her lawyer said.
That underscored the importance to investigators of finding other evidence if
they are to prove allegations of a presidential affair and cover-up. The White
House already has turned over some documents in response to subpoenas from!
Starr, and several administration officials have appeared before the grand jur
A source said presidential adviser Bruce Lindsey is one of the latest to be sub-
poenaed.

coming at a key time in light of the cur-
rent lawsuits challenging the University's
use of affirmative action in the admis-
sions process Hernandez said the climate
on campus is "dictating our actions."
"We are trying to formulate the energy
around us," he said. "We are pretty much
accommodating the atmosphere."
Hernandez said the goal of the week
is to expose Chicano history not only to
the Mexican American community but
to the entire University.
"We don't want it just to be a
Chicano crowd," Hernandez said.
"There are other issues that transcends
demographics."
Urbina said the event is not limited to
students of color, adding that Mexican
Americans' struggles, accomplish-

ments and conflicts can serve as lessons
for all students.
"I think its beneficial for all students
to come," Urbina said.
Hernandez said MEChA is sponsoring
speeches by two acclaimed journalists
about affirmative action and other issues
pertinent to minority groups. Hernandez
said students have to take a more proac-
tive stand.
"We are trying to make our politics
and philosophy more portable,"
Hernandez said. "I am hoping people
will wake up over the next two weeks."
Nunn said he incourages students
from different cultural and religious
backgrounds to come to gain an under-
standing of Mexican American history.
"It's important to understand where
people are coming from in order to make
the University more productive," Nunn
said. "Diversity is an untapped resource."

World leaders call
for nuclear freeze
WASHINGTON - More than 100
former or current heads of state and
civilian leaders from around the world,
including ex-presidents Jimmy Carter
and Mikhail Gorbachev, have signed a
statement that calls for removing
nuclear weapons from alert status and
other measures aimed at the eventual
elimination of atomic arsenals.
The statement, scheduled for release
today, echoes a similar appeal by 60
generals and admirals in late 1996. It
reflects mounting support for the cause
of nuclear abolition among those who
have had direct responsibility for atom-
ic weapons programs.
"The world is not condemned to live
forever with threats of nuclear conflict,
or the anxious fragile peace imposed by
nuclear deterrence," the document
says, according to a copy made avail-
able in advance. "Such threats are intol-
erable and such a peace unworthy. The
sheer destructiveness of nuclear
weapons invokes a moral imperative

for their elimination.
Endorsing the message are 117
prominent individuals from 46 nations,
including 47 past or present presidents
and prime ministers.
State releases new
tobacco documents
ST. PAUL, Minn. - During the first
week of Minnesota's massive case
against the tobacco industry, attorneys
for the state started unveiling some of the
"smoking howitzer" documents that
Minnesota Attorney General Hubert
Humphrey III told members of Congress
they needed to see before making a dec
sion on the proposed S368.5 billion
national tobacco settlement.
Armong the potentially most damag-
ing documents are those showing that
the cigarette companies knew years ago
from their own internal research that
smokers using supposedly safer "low
tar, low nicotine" cigarettes compen-
sate in a variety of ways in order to get
the desired level of nicotine to satisfi
their cravings.

new security actions by the Palestinians. Progress was minimal, she said.
Although Albright said she is "not as satisfied as I wish I could be," she announced
that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat
will send diplomats to Washington next week to keep working on President Clinton's
proposal.
Arafat emerged sullen earlier after a two-hour meeting with Albright at
Ramallah, a West Bank town turned over by Israel in December 1995 under the
Oslo accord.
He made no statement.
Last week, the Palestinian leader responded "definitely not" when asked if he had
accepted Clinton's suggestion. State Department officials sought to convince reporters
traveling with Albright that he had, indeed, agreed to consider the idea while seeking
more details how to acquire more land from Israel.

Albright frustrated
with Mideast talks
JERUSALEM - Secretary of State
Madeleine Albright scolded Israeli and
Palestinian leaders yesterday, telling
them that she is "sick and tired" of their
intransigence and that it imperils the
entire Middle East peace process.
In separate meetings, she told Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat
that she is fed up with finger pointing
as a substitute for the hard decisions
needed to break an I I1-month deadlock
in peace talks, according to a senior
U.S. official.
"They were coming back with all
their reasons why they couldn't do that,"
the official said. In both cases, separate-
ly, she said, "I am sick and tired of hear-
ing you give me a pile full of complaints
about the other guy, and that is not going
to help us get to the point where we can
make tough decisions."
Albright's strong signal of impatience,
conveyed to reporters on condition of
anonymity and accompanied by blunt
public statements along similar lines,
/' -1

marked a new step in the Clinton admin-
istration's campaign to bridge wide gaps
between Israeli and Palestinian leaders.
After four hours of talks wi@
Netanyahu Saturday that stretched into
the early morning, and two hours with
Arafat yesterday, Albright issued a pes-
simistic assessment of the state of
Middle East peace.
New government
raises hope for peace
BANJA LUKA, Bosnia-Herzegovi
- The inauguration Saturday of a rela-
tively moderate and apparently coopera-
tive government here in the Serb-con-
trolled half of Bosnia opens a new chap-
ter in the West's efforts to bring peace
and stability to this war wrecked region.
Yet even as Bosnian Serbs are begin-
ning to gain power under the guidance of
international mediators, another task
awaits the West: nurturing a similar alter-
native to the hard-line nationalism
Muslim and Croatian politicians wh
rule their enclaves unchallenged.
