No. 34t Saturday, March 26, 1968 ** Goodmerningf D 6693 A Senate passes resolution, agrees 'Noriega must go' WASHINGTON (AC) — The Scnalc, voting unani- mously, urged Pfcsidcnl Rcagiin Friday to increase economic, political and diplomatic pressure against Panamanian military ruler Gen, Manuel Anlonio No- riega and lo ejvc substantial economic aid to a succes- sor democratic government. Voting 92-0, tlic Senate approved n resolution de> daring inc current unrest in I'anama "an unusual and extraordinary threat lo MIC national security, foreign policy and economy of the United States." "The impression in all our minds is that Noriega must go." said Sen. C'tuilwrnc I'cll, D-R.I., chairman ofihc Senate Foreign Relations Ccinimillee, "He will go," Fell sauI. "And lllis will help him Oown Hie slippery slope." Reagan was asked during a question-and-answcr ses- sion with reporters before meeting with Dominican ['resident Jaaquicn Bctogucr whether Noriega would bv going to Ilie Dominican Republic. "No. Thai's not far enough," the president answered. A senior administration official, speaking on condi- tion of anonymity, said the Dominican Republic had indicated il would not grant Noriega asylum. Sen, Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass.. a principal sponsor of the nan-binding resolution, said il was drafted at lite direct request of President Eric Ariuro Dcvalle, who was misled as Panama's chicfcxeculivc a month ago after directing NoricRa to step down as head of the country's armed forces. Several senators urged Noriega to reconsider Spain's csik1 offer and the U.S. Justice Department's assur- ance not to seek extradition if he voluntarily gives up power. They made it clear Congress is ready lo enact sterner steps if Noriega continues :o hold on. Among the options available tu the United States is the imposition of a total trade embargo against Pana- ma, a step the Reagan administration has resisted in favor of a more measured, incremental approach. In addition to urging further U.S. pressure against Noriega, the resolution said his successor; should re- ceive prompt and substantial U.S. support. It said the While House should consider "a compre- hensii -i package of emergency financial and other eco- nomic assistance.. . in order to assist in the-rebuilding of Panama's economy."
