Talks continue
in missile crisis


TEL AVIV, Israel (AP)-Prime
Minister Menachem Begin said yester-
day after another round of talks that he
will give U.S. envoy Philip Habib more
time to seek a diplomatic solution to the
crisis with Syria over its missiles in
Lebanon. Syria said it was ready for
battle if war breaks out.
In Washington, Pentagon sources
confirmed Israeli newspaper reports
that the 18,000-ton Soviet helicopter
carrier Moskva moved closer to
Lebanon's coast, saying it was ap-
parently there to show support for
Syria, a Soviet ally.
THE PENTAGON sources said the
U.S. aircraft carrier Independence and
two other warships bound for Norfolk,
Va., sailed through the Suez Canal into
the eastern Mediterranean yesterday
and may be kept there because of the
Israeli-Syrian tension.
Habib, whose presence in the area is
regarded as a deterrent to armed con-
flict, is to fly to Saudi Arabia today.
It would be Habib's first stop in Saudi
Arabia since he arrived in the Middle
East as President Reagan's personal
envoy in quest of a solution to the mis-
ile crisis.

THE SAUDIS have helped to
bankroll Syrian military forces
stationed in Lebanon under an Arab
League mandate to enforce a truce
reached after Moslem-Christian
hostilities erupted in civil war in 1975.
But Syrian Foreign Minister Abdul-
Halim Khaddam was quoted in his
country's newspapers yesterday as
saying the Arab nations are now
withholding the $15 million a month
support. The reason was unclear.
Neither U.S. or Israeli officials would
disclose Habib's plans or discuss
details of his hour-long meeting with
Begin, the second in 12hours.
Begin told reporters after the
meeting that Syria continued to refuse
his demand the missiles be removed,
and said, "The efforts to find a peaceful
solution to the crisis continue."
Begin has threatened to unleash the
Israeli air force to knock out the Soviet-
made SAM-6s, which have been in
Lebanon since April 29. On Thursday,
the missiles shot down a pilotless
Israeli spy plane.
Syria's Khaddam had been quoted in
Damascus newspapers as saying Syria
was "ready to do battle if Begin tran-
slates his threats to deeds"
