30 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Wediuldny, July 1970 Interpreting The Neivs Nixon Confuses Mideast Issue WASHINGTON (CP) Presi- dent Nixon and his spokesmen, in sounding the alarm over the possible imbalance of power in the Arab-Israeli conflict, seems to have confused the situation at home, in the Middle East and, probably, in the Kremlin. The original which since have been clarified and rcclarified by "unnamed but highly placed" White House in the presi- dent's hour-long televised "con- versation" with three network commentators last week. Pinpointing the Middle East Russia Spurns Plan GENEVA (Reuters) The Soviet Union today rejected ap- peals to revise yertification pro- cedures in a joint Soviet-Ameri- can draft treaty to ban nuclear and other mass-destruction weapons from the ocean floor. Since the two permanent co- chairmen of the 25-nation con- ference tabled their third dr'aft April 23, Canada, India, Swe- den, Brazil, Yugoslavia and Ar- gentina have urged an amend- ment to give states the right to call on the United Nations sec- retary-general t o investigate suspected violations. Soviet delegate Alexei A. Rosbcin said today that Soviet- rejection of tlie proposal should in no way be associated with his government's attitude toward UN Secretary-Genera! U Thant, "whom we hold in our highest esteem." He said the Soviet Union could not accept "the provision which could serve as a cover for all kinds of attempts by some Western countries to use tie international institutions to the detriment of the interests of other states of international peace and security in general." Establishment of a United Na- tions verification group "would cause substantial expenditures which are unnecessary in our opinion." Verification could be undertaken by any member using its own means, or with as- sistance from any otier state. Mexican delegate Jorge Cas- taneda called for complete de- militarization of the seabed. Two Promotions In RCMP Ranks OTTAWA (CP) Two promo- tions and a retirement were an- nounced today by the RCMP. Assistant Commissioner Geof- frey Walter Mortimer, 52, a na- tive of Leader, Sask., has been promoted to the rank of deputy commissioner (administration) and Chief Superintendent Peter Bazowski, 46, of Vonda, Sask., assumes the rank of assistant commissioner. Deputy Commissioner Weldon J. Fitzsimmons, 57, an adminis- trator in Ottawa, retired July 5. as by far the most dangerou area for possible East-West con flict, Nixon.suggested the Ara states wanted to drive the Is raelis into the sea. Subsequently the unnamet White House official, briefin reporters, was quoted as sayin it was necessary to "expel" So viet air combat power froir Egypt before it became firmly entrenched that it cause a shift in the power balance. The idea of expelling the Rus sians raised as much concer here as did the "drive Israe into the sea" remark in Ara capitals. Reports from the Middle Eas indicate that even the more so phisticated Arab observers an analysts were incensed by re- vival of that kind of talk, whic dates back to United' Nation forums in the pre-1967 Middl East war days. ARAB STAND ALTERED Diplomats there are said to b pointing to several public state- ments by Arab are said to be even more em phatic in they now are willing to accent Israel as Middle Eastern state. Meanwhile, at the Western White House in San Clemente Calif., from which Nixon anc his staff returned Monday spokesmen were expressing concern and dismay at the im pression their earlier pro- nouncements on the situation seemed1 to have made on the public. They conceded they wishec they had used a milder term than "expel" in reference to the Soviet air power that now spreads an umbrella of protec tion over Egypt. The Nixon administration they said, meant from the star that it hoped to eliminate the Soviet forces through diplomat! not They did not suggest wha form such diplomacy woul< take, or what would be done i diplomacy fails. PUBLIC WARNED The mam idea of the exercise it appears, was1 to educate the American public to the fact tha' Nixon meant exactly what he said in describing the Middle East situation as "terribly dan gerous." He wanted to wipe away .the public idea that this was just a regional conflict and to emphasize that it was the one situation in the his which there was1 the potential danger of the super- powers being drawn into a con- flict. In the absence of any hint as to what the U.S. might do to restore the balance upset by the arrival of Soviet forces Egypt, speculation centred on the U.S.'sending planes and pi- lots over Israel to counter So- viet airpower over Egypt. More likely, in the view ol several diplomatic observers, is the reinforcement of the U.S. 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean. But the possibility of both the U.S. and the Soviet Union hav- ing a military presence in the getting involved acci- dentally or on purpose in an at- iack on one indeed "terribly dangerous." No doubt such a possibility is as frightening in the Kremlin as it is in Washington and, in the view of some observers, may be the catalyst that will finally jring a new, concerted effort on both sides to find a final settle- ment.
