Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Auguit 1973 THE LETHMIDGE HERALD IS HOW OTHER COUNTRIES VIEW WATERGATE SCANDAL By BERNARD GWERTZMAfi New York Times Service WASHINGTON A world survey by correspondents of the New York Times in last week has indicated that al- though foreign leaders 2nd lie. figures now seem to take the Watergate scandals more seriously than they did a few ironths the affair has not so far cut deeply into their widespread support for Nixan's course in foreign policy. A similar survey was con- ducted by The Times in May and the response then showed that overseas criticism of Nixon was light and that foreign rela- tions did not appear to have suffered any significant dam- age. At that American of- ficials seemed more than they do now that Water- gate could be isolated from for- eign affairs. Since criticism of Nixon seems to have iacreas e d particularly in regard to his -refusal to turn over the White House tapes. The foreign press has been preponderantly critical cf except in a few isolated cases such as Le Figaro of which said of Nixon recently that will come a moment when the satile American democracy will be thankful to for holding firm. Among the major conclusions drawn from the study are the chief focus of concern is that congress will pre-empt the president's powers in foreign policy. This is particularly dis- concerting in Western Europe where the allies fear a unilat- eral congressional cut in the HEINITZ PRINTERS STATIONERS LTD. 324 9th St. 3.

It is also true in Sputh Vietnam where President Ngu- yen Van Thieu has expressed concern about congress cutting back on foreign aid to his coun- try. Watergate is taken more seriously. now than in Soviet and Chinese lead- ers have continued to order their media to ignore Water- gate as much as possible. Nei- ther Peking nor Moscow to tarnish NL'.on's image since they have bath based their for- eign policies on good relathits with his administration. The Russians have printed only a noncritical while- the Chinese have not mention- ed Watergate at all. There has been no sign that Watergate has cripped azy on-going negotiations or other- wise set back normal diploma- tic business. in has seemed to go out of Ms way to meet foreign leaders in this per- iod including Leonid I. Brezh- the Soviet Communist par- jty the Shah of Premier Kakuei Tanaka or Prime Minister Gough Whitlam of and President Bernard Bongo of Gabon. Despite the cloud over Nixon's he still plans to make a major Euro- pean trip sometime this fall if preliminary negotiations are not early next year. And there has been no indication that any of the Eur- opean countries want to with- draw the welcome mat. A brief nation by nation rundown ARGENTINA The Watergate affair contin- ues to be largely overshadowed or ignored because of the al- most total immersion of Argen- tines in their own political cri- sis caused by the return of Juan DomingD Peron. Even those interested in the scandal ere perplexed by the causes and complications. Au- gustin the leading Marx- ist labor leader in asked American visitors re- cently for details on Watergate. But he kept keep asking what economic interests are behind the inves- and BRAZIL Brazilian officials and press have kept a discreet silence about due largely to the long tradition of alliance with the United States and the fact that the United States is Brazil's biggest customer and investor. Any sign of American insta- bility would give cause for con- cern to Brazilian officials who already are worried about pro- blems in neighboring Argentina and Uruguay as well as Chile. A view fairly prevalent was ut- tered by a intellectual who American de- mocracy 'wonderful. The free press is a great thing. it looks as if they're trying to destroy themselves over is- sues which are not BRITAIN British officials have prob- ably been more concerned about Watergate than any oth- er but this concern has had no apparent effect on day-to-day diplomatic business. In long range Bri- tish anxieties lie in three areas money and troops. Of- ficials fear that Nixon's loss of influence in Congress will make it difficult for him the kind cf flexible trade bill he is seeking. On monetary the British are ner- vous over the administration's ability to handle economic cri- sis at hcmev On they are worried about his ability to hold off congressional demands for unilateral pullbacks from Europe. A recent attributed to sources close to Prime Minis- ter Edward attracted considerable attention. It clearly worries Heath at present is CANADA Opinion makers seem more and more revolted with the Wahregate revelations and it is hard to find any public defense of Nixon. A common Canadian attitude was expressed recent- ly by a banker in Montreal who never understood i why you people elected Nixon 1 in the first place. He's not a Canadian type at FRANCE businessmen and other public figures have begun to take Watergate seriously as a development cf historical im- p a c undeniably important though still impossible to as- and not as they first believed just some silly poli- tical caper that would soon dis- appear and be forgotten. Although the government avoids all officials privately acknowledge that Watergate is being carefully including a search for c.ues on where it will So the search has been and Franco- American relations are contin- uing normally. Nixon's image has been tar- nished but there is also some tendency among commentators to sympathize with him as a 'victim' oJ the electronic age cr of modern idealistic expectations. JAPAN Japanese officials continue to give the impression that the Watergate scandal has affect- ed their attitudes toward the United States marginally. Newspapers have become more but media converage on the whole has slackened and public interest is passive in a country accustomed to its own political scandals. LEBANON In this centre of the Arab Nixon's image has hit rock but not so much over Watergate as over last month's American veto in the United Nation's Security Coun- cil of an anti-Israeli resolution. Some Arab intellectuals view the veto as a sign that Nixon was so weakened by Watergate that he had to veto to prove his foreign policy had not changed. President Anwar El-Sadat of Egypt was quoted as saying that he was now convinced that the Watergate had made Nixon a and therefore unable to exer- cise any pressure on Israel for a settlement in the Middle East. SPAIN Watergate tends to be lump- ed with America's other prob- lems. The result in Spain is a mix of worry and even some admiration about America's present and future. will happen to is one of the most frequently asked questions in Madrid be- cause there are many Span- iards who believe that Spain's and the world's interest are in- volved in what happens te Washingto-i. Perplexity is caused by the fact that what is going on in Washington is basically foreign. The idea that a chief of state could be attacked in tfiis way is unimaginable in Madrid. SOVIET UNPON Soviet officials and journalists who were slow to take Water- ogate seriously at first now rea- lize it is a major scandal. They appear increasingly worried that any of stature cr pawer by Nixon will be trans- lated into a loss for Brezhnev's detente policy because the So- viet leader has tied that potiO' so closely to his relations with Nixon. All these comments have been made privately. ly all news about Watergate has been suppressed in the So- viet media. As a result of Brezhnev's visit to in Soviet American re- j lations are going ahead virtual- j ly oblivious of Watergate.
