Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 8, 197S THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 17 Kissinger makes one final stab at Mideast peace settlement Nixon feared Ford couldn't handle Kissinger UNITED NATIONS (CP) U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissinger is going to the Mid- dle East again to make one Final stab at nudging the Arabs and the Israelis towards a peace settlement. The 10-day trip starts Sun- day and will take Kissinger to Egypt, Isjael, Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. It will be followed by talks with leaders in Bonn, London and Paris and a two-day meeting with Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko in Geneva. The consensus emerging is that this will be the last of Kissinger's attempts at step- by-step diplomacy to get the Arabs and Israelis to agree to a settlement: Washington already is talk- ing of a second trip to the Mid- dle East within weeks to hammer out details of an Israeli-Egyptian disengage- ment of troops if this first "exploratory" visit succeeds. But, if it fails, the negotiating scene will shift to Geneva and a resumption of the peace conference that opened briefly there last year under United Nations auspices and then was sus- pended to give Kissinger a chance to follow up 'the HUSQVARNA Sewing Machine Centre REPAIRS AND PARTS for most Domestic Machines 13 years experience in field. HOUSE CALLS MADE 122 8th St. S. Phone 327-7660 success he achieved a year ago in persuading the Egyp- tians and Israelis to disengage their troops in the Suez area. The United States has been trying to avoid a Geneva con- ference, which would give the Soviet.Union a larger say in the negotiating process. The Americans prefer the step-by- step approach. They feel a conference will produce only set speeches and hardened positions from which it will be difficult for adversaries, in the glare of publicity, to withdraw. One immediate stumbling block at Geneva would be the question of whether the Pales- tine Liberation Organization which the U.S. shuns and the Israelis violently op- pose, should be allowed to par- ticipate. The PLO gained con- siderable stature, particularly among non-aligned nations, when its chief, Yasser Arafat, was invited to address the UN general Assembly last fall. In this latest trip, Kissinger will be seeking Israeli- Egyptian agreement on a se- cond withdrawal of troops along their front. There is some slender hope of success. Both Israel and Egypt are going along with the Kissinger visit and both seem to be committed to some form of negotiation. Also, the trip will take place against the background of a series of meetings Kissinger has been molding in Washington since last fall with emissaries from-Cairo and Tel Aviv. Egypt wants the Israelis to surrender the Abu Rudeis oil- fields in the southern Sinai Peninsula and pull back 30 miles in the North to beyond the Mitla and Giddi mountain passes which control the road to the oilfields, command the approach to the southern Suez canal and block Egypt's entry to Israel. All of this is Egyptian territory seized by Israel in the 1967 war. Israeli Premier Yitzhak Ra- bin says he would meet those terms if Egypt would proclaim a clear-cut declara- tion of nonbelligerency towards Israel and thus com- mit itself to end hostilities. GETS OFFICE TERRIGAL (AP) The Australian government will allow the Provisional Revolutionary Government of South Vietnam (PRG) to es- tablish an information office in Australia similar to those in Scandinavia, the Australian Labor party federal conference decided Friday. The PRG is the political arm of the Viet Cong. WASHINGTON (AP) Former White House aide Charles Colson said Friday that Richard Nixon con- sidered resigning the United States presidency eight months before he did so, but worried that Gerald Ford could not control State Secretary Henry Kissinger. "You know, Henry really is unstable at Colson quoted Nixon as telling him in a December, 1973, conver- sation. When reporters asked him about the Colson statement, Kissinger replied: "I will not dignify that with a comment." In an interview on the NBC Today show, Colson said that during a December 18, 1973, conversation Nixon talked se- riously about resigning the presidency. "Maybe what this country needs is a nice clean Jerry Colson quoted Nixon as saying. "The trouble with Jerry Ford is it would take him two years just to get up speed." Nixon was quoted as adding that "Jerry's greatest dif- ficulty is he couldn't control Henry Kissinger." As an example of what he thought Nixon meant, Colson said that a year earlier Kissin- ger had advocated an imme- diate resumption of bombing of North Vietnam when negotiations with Lo Due Tho appeared stalemated. Colson said he saw a cable Kissinger sent from Paris on Dec. 5, 1972, which read: "Start the bombing im- mediately, these madmen have doublecrossed us." Later, state department spokesman Robert Anderson said the department files were reviewed and did not support Colson's version of the cable.
