Argentina,

accusations

From the Associated Press
Britain and Argentina, without ruling
out negotiations, accused each other
yesterday of using peace proposals to
camouflage aggression, and failed to
agree on a cease-fire in the Falkland
Islands conflict.
British Defense Minister John Nott
told his NATO counterparts yesterday
his country remains prepared to fight
Argentina over the Falkland Islands,
and said Britain does not need any
American military assistance.
Nott spoke after briefing ministers
from 13 North Atlantic Treaty
Organization partners on the crisis in
the South Atlantic, heightened in
urgency by loss of lives, planes and
warships on both sides. He said Britain
insists on Argentina's withdrawal from
the islands, seized from the British on
April 2, asa condition for a cease-fire.
Britain's naval task force lost two
more Sea Harrier fighter jets, but the
cause could have been bad weather,
Defense Ministry spokesman Ian Mc-
Donald said. They were the first losses
for Britain since Tuesday, when an
Argentine missile demolished the
destroyer HMS Sheffield.
MCDONALD SAID the Sea Harriers
disappeared from radar screens at 7
a.m. EDT while2patrolling in the
British-imposed 200-mile total ex-
clusion zone around the Falklands.
"We do not know the reason for this,"
he said, but added that "the weather
and visibility were very poor."
"In view of the time that has now
elapsed, the aircraft must be assumed
missing," McDonsld said. He said a
search and rescue was undertaken for
the pilots, and relatives were being
told.
There have been no reports of
fighting in the area from either side
sinceFTuesday.

Mrs. Thatcher told the House of
Commons in London that while Britain
accepted Perez deCuellar's proposals

"framework" for future talks, her
government will not cease its military
campaign.
"It would be too easy to say no
military activities during
negotiations," she said. "What would
happen? We would be hamstrung. The
people would stilliremain under the heel
