House passes aid
bill for El Salvador
WASHINGTON (AP) - The
Democratic-controlled House gave
President Reagan a significant victory
on military aid to El Salvador yester-
day, voting to grant the assistance un-
der conditions that opponents attacked
as too lenient but supporters defended
By a margin of 212-208, the House
adopted a Republican foreign aid
amendment that would authorize $120
million in emergency security
assistance for El Salvador and other
Central American countries and im-
pose relatively easy conditions on fur-
ther Salvadoran aid.
THE HOUSE then approved, by a 211-
206 vote, the $10.5 -billion worldwide
foreign aid bill, which contains the El
Salvador aid authorization. A similar
bill awaits Senate action, but contains
no Central American provisions
because of a deadlock in the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee.
Adoption of the GOP proposal will
provide guidelines for a House-Senate
conference committee which meets
next week to consider a $61.7 million
emergency appropriation for the
Salvadoran military that was approved
last month by the Republican-
The measure also authorizes enough
military aid for Central America in the
fiscal year beginning Oct. 1 to meet the
administration's request for $132.5
million for El Salvador. The first half
would be available if the president told
Congress that the Salvadorans were
making progress in human irghts and
other reforms. The rest would require a
second presidential report and be sub-
ject to congressional disapproval
within 30 days.
MOST OF the Democrats on the
House Foreign Affairs committee
backed a proposal that would hold back
two-thirds of the funds unless Congress
found that the Salvadorans had curbed
death squads and begun negotiations
with left-wing guerrillas to end the
country's civil war.

amernent, Rep. Stephen Solarz (D-

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) -
The World Court yesterday called on
the United States to stop military
aggression aimed at Nicaragua in-
cluding mining its waters. The San-
dinista government hailed the ruling as
a "moral victory."
The U.S. State Department, which
earlier had rejected the court's
jurisdiction in any matter involving
Central America, said it would accept
the ruling but asserted it would
require 'no change in "current U.S.
policy or activities." U.S. sources have
said the mining was discontinued a
The 15-member panel ruled
unanimously that the United States
"should immediately cease and refrain
from any action restricting, blocking or
endangering access to or from
Nicaraguan ports, and, in particular,
the laying of mines."
A second part of the decision, which a
U.S. judge opposed, said that "the right
to sovreignty and to political indepen-
dence possessed by the Republic of
Nicaragua" should be fully respected
and not jeopardized by military or
Thle court, the judicial arm of the
United Nations, has no enforcement
The court's ruling was an interim
measure sought by Nicaragua while the
court deliberates Nicaragua's com-
plaint that the United States violated in-
ternational law by supporting anti-San-
dinista rebels and supervising the
mining of Nicaraguan harbors.
The court is empowered to tak such
measures before final adjudication in a
case when it judges that the sovereign
rights of a nation are in jeopardy.
