Sino-Soviet talks
MOSCOW - Chinese Vice
Premier Yao Yilin arrived in
Moscow yesterday for talks aimed
at quadrupling the level of trade
between the communist giants and
said he hoped the visit would help
normalize strained Sino-Soviet
Yao said his discussions with
Soviet leaders would focus on the
development of trade and other
economic ties as well as "other
questions of mutual interest," an
apparent reference to long-
standing disputes that have chilled
relations between the two nations.
The highlight of the visit will be
the signing of a five-year trade
pact, which Westernddiplomats in
Peking said is designed to
quadruple Sino-Soviet trade to $6
billion a year by 1990. The amount
of Sino-Soviet trade this year is ex-
pected to reach $1.6 billion, com-
pared with $1.2 billion in 1984.
U.S.S.R. says U.S.
sponsors terrorism
MOSCOW - The Soviet Union
yesterday denied President
Reagan's charges that it has a
close relationship with terrorist
states and attacked Washington
for sponsoring "state terrorism
Reagan charged Monday that
Iran, Libya, North Korea, Cuba
and Nicaragua represent "a new
international version of Murder
Inc." He also said the Soviet
Union's "close relationship with
almost all of the terrorist states"
must be recognized.
Responding to Reagan's speech
to the American Bar Association,
the Communist Party newspaper
Pravda accused the United States
of sponsoring terrorism in Central
America, Southeast Asia, Africa
and the Middle East.
Iraqi planes fire
on Turkish tanker
Iraqi warplanes fired a missile

Tuesday into a Turkish super-
tanker, setting it afire in the Per-
sian Gulf. Lloyd's of London said it
was the largest ship yet hit in the
nearly 5-year-old war with Iran.
The official Iraqi News Agency
said Iraqi warplanes, attacking at
dawn, hit a "large naval target"
near Kharg Island, Iran's main oil
exporting terminal in the gulf. In
the past, Iraq has used that phrase
to refer to oil tankers but it gave no
other details on yesterday's hit.
Brushfires still burn
Walls of fire continued their

California was the worst hit by
blazes sparked by lightning bolts
and arsonists while an army of
firefighters were flown in from all
over the country.
State officials said the unruly
fires, which have killed three, are
the worst since 1980. Flames have
forced thousands of people from
their homes and blackened about
230,000 acres in the state since
June 30.
Shultz visits refugees
BANGKOK, Thailand -
Secretary of State George Shultz
trekked to a refugee camp on the
volatile Thai-Cambodian border
yesterday and pledged U.S. sup-
port to 55,000 Cambodian refugees
who chanted, "U.S.A. Number
Shultz, the highest-ranking U.S.
official to visit the embattled bor-
der, shook hands and patted babies
as he waded through the throng of
cheering refuges at the camp
known as Site7.
"Please help us turn Vietnamese
killing fields into Cambodian far-
ming fields. We want to go home,"
said one placard carried by the
refugees. "God Bless America,"
said another.
The 55,000 refugees were among
250,000 people who fled to Thailand
when Vietnamese troops oc-
cupying Cambodia overran all the
major Cambodian rebel bases on
the border during a dry-season of-
fensive last winter and spring.
