Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Long stay seen CAIRO (CP) Lt.-Gen. Ensio Sulasvuo, 52, Finnish commander of the United Nations Emergency Force says he thinks "some kind of UN presence will be needed in the Mid- dle East for a long years." "But what kind of presence? That is the question." Emphasmg that this kind of specula- tion represents only his personal views, Siilasvuo says "maybe in the future we will not need as many troops" as now involved in the force under his command, including Canadians "Perhaps we will use more sophisticated equipment, say, more helicopters or tracked vehicles, to cover wide areas and buffer zones now under the watch of UN he said in an interview This would be possible if the mood on both sides improves and he thinks it is improving Much depends, he added, on progress at the Geneva peace conference involv- ing Arabs and Israelis, now delayed un- til December for a "cooling-off" pe- riod "There is a new confidence he said while working in his steamy, mahogany-panelled office at UN headquarters here. Recalling the October war, he said the situation was very dan- more so than many peo- ple realized. There was fear of big-power intervention with the Americans call- ing a nuclear alert. "It is a miracle how the presence of the UN troops changed the he said. "At the time, the military situation was more favorable for the Israelis but they realized it would have been costly in the long run to push on. Now I hardly can see any resumption of party could gain. "All parties now have much more respect for the UN and appreciate our role more than in earlier days. This is true particularly on the Israeli side. They now see the value of our presence." It is because of this new respect, he feels, that a gradual reduction in UN troops might be possible in the future. "The UN was fortunate in the early days, when it needed to establish a presence fast, that it could call in Fin- nish, Swedish and Austrian troops from Cyprus, all old hands and equipped to sustain themselves for 30 days. The UN has never been prepared very well for this sort of had to start from scratch. For economic and political reasons there is no con- tingency planning, no stores ready. "Although the Canadians rushed in early in November and commenced with the Poles the difficult task of es- tablishing camp Shams in a suburban Cairo racetrack, the Canadians did not become fully operational until mid- December, supplying with the Poles all the back-up services of com- munications, transport, medical care, vehicle repairs and the like. "It was not the Canadians' fault supplies were so bad in those days. SHOWS OBSTACLES "Even now the problem of supplies is not very pleasant. Part of the problem is that the UN likes to buy local where possible, and there are few big wholesalers here We have to deal in- dividually with small merchants and that makes planning difficult Nevertheless, he said, morale remains amazingly high. Siilasvuo travels a lot among the various UN has a reputation for spending as much time chatting with lower ranks as with he says all are in good spirits. "The only explanation I can he said, rubbing his hand thoughtfully over his thinning, crew-cut silver hair, "is that the men think they are doing a ser- vice that really helps."
