A-4World THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Thursday, September 12, 1991 ovieis 10 Bell thousands of trooBS from Cuba Announcement a surprise, Havana complains THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MEXICO CITY The Cuban government lashed out at Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev on Wednesday, saying he had announced the withdrawal of thousands of troops from Cuba without even advising his formerly close ally. The Foreign Ministry said Gorbachev had shown "inappropriate" behavior by failing to consult before making the announcement. The text of the ministry statement was monitored in Mexico City. The Foreign Ministry also said Gorbachev was wrong when he said there were 11,000 Soviet troops in Cuba. The number is "substantially lower" and the troop presence is largely "symbolic," it said. Western experts say the Soviet Union probably has between 6,800 and 7,700 troops in Cuba a third soldiers, a third advisers and a third intelligence analysts. The Foreign Ministry complained that Gorbachev didn't even allude to the fact that the United States has a naval base, Guantanamo, on Cuban territory. Guantanamo has long been a thorn in the Cuban side, as the Soviet troops only 90 miles from the U.S. mainland have been for Washington.

Gorbachev, who announced the decision after a meeting in Moscow with Secretary of State James Baker, also said that in the future, Soviet economic ties with Cuba will be based strictly on free trade, eliminating the effective $2 bil-lion-a-year subsidy that Moscow has been giving Havana by bartering Soviet oil for Cuban sugar on terms that greatly overvalued the sugar. For three decades, a major goal of U.S. foreign policy has been to remove the Soviet military presence in Cuba and to end the substantial Soviet aid to the communist outpost, 90 miles from Florida. In particular, the Bush administration, to meet the concerns of conservatives, had conditioned substantial economic aid to the Soviet Union on an end to the Soviet military presence in Cuba and a cutoff on subsidies to Castro. Asked what he thought of Gorbachev's overture, Baker said: "I would not characterize that as a small gesture. I think it is a very substantial gesture." He added later: "That will be very important with respect to public opinion in the United States." Only hours after Gorbachev made his announcement, Baker was told by the Russian republic's president, Boris Yeltsin, that he was proposing a compromise solution to Japan for settling a dispute over four islands in the Kurile chain seized by the Soviets at the end of World War II. Tokyo has made a return of the islands a condition for any substantial economic aid to the Soviets. While not disclosing the Yeltsin proposals, Baker described them as "very substantive." snm . v- V Guaranteed Lowell PrKe $399 N Sevsn Diamond Marquisa SIZE iowtatPnett Old. til ltd 195 Ct $117 Kr Cl T1S Vicl. 1235 4 ct. t4SS I Ct 11215 Annlvarury Band!

Clearly, word that the Soviet Union will soon open discussions to withdraw its military from Cuba produced a moment for the Bush administration to savor. The president's own impatience was obvious. "I wish they'd hurry up," he told reporters in the Oval Office in his only public comment on the development. Speaking to reporters in Ashland, Ohio, where he was delivering a speech, Defense Secretary Dick Cheney said, "The Soviet withdrawal is an indication to Fidel Castro, who has kept himself in power all these years by brute force, that his own days may be numbered." But the administration seemed unclear about how to go about accelerating that process. Members of Congress immediately began floating proposals to toughen economic sanctions against Havana, make direct economic aid to the Soviet Union contingent on an end to all of Moscow's ties to Cuba, including economic ones, and stall the process of granting favorable tariff treatment for the Soviet Union, which Bush has been trying to speed. The White House tried to fend off those proposals, each of which conflicted with policy goals of its own. Speaking with reporters outside the White House after a meeting with Bush, two Republican lawmakers, Sen. Phil Gramm of Texas and Rep. Newt Gingrich of Georgia, said the Soviet announcement, while welcome, did not go far enough. They insisted that all economic aid from Moscow to Cuba should be ended. "I am not going to vote for any kind of assistance to the Soviet Union as long as they are providing aid to Fidel Castro," Gramm said. "We can't let this freedom tide wash over the world and not drown Fidel Castro." vny ana jr Diamond Ring Pre-Engagement Rmg 4577 Dixie Hwy.
