After a six-hour meeting with Syrian President Hafez Assad, Baker told a news conference that the letter of assurances he gave Assad states that United Nations resolutions calling for the return of all occupied territories "apply on all fronts. "That means they apply not just to the West Bank and Gaza, but to the Golan as well." Baker said the position advanced to Assad was a restatement of longstanding U.S. policy. However, its inclusion in the formal letter makes it a key element of the planning for a proposed Mideast peace conference. Making position known During his current trip to the Mideast, Baker is delivering such letters to most of the parties that would attend the conference the United States hopes to convene by the end of October. Joining Baker at the news conference was Syrian Foreign Minister Farouk Sharaa, who said, "The Golan is an integral (part) of the Syrian land and it should be returned to Syria if peace is to be re-established in the region." Sharaa also said that if the United States grants Israel $10 billion in housing loan guarantees without delay "it would be a major obstacle to peace." However, the foreign minister MADE IN AMERICA 5 YR50,000 MEAL WARRANTY ON TABLES 42 OR 48W T0 1 10. 10 YR WARRANTY ON CHAIRS EXCLUSIVE SUPER BART0P FINISH for a few days or weeks," he said. Baker disputed reports that he had told Israel future housing aid would be conditioned on a halt to building settlements in the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza. "We have not discussed publicly or privately a settlement freeze in connection with absorption aid to Israel," Baker said. He added, however, that the United States has "a right to know and a right to ask how that aid and how those guarantees will be used." Baker said the letters of assurance he has delivered to Palestinians and to Middle East governments seek to respond to individual concerns of the several parties. No conflicts seen He emphasized that while each letter was different, "there will be no conflicts between the assurances we give the parties." He said that before any peace conference is convened, each party will have access to the letters given to the others. Sharaa refused to comment on the letter, saying that his government was still studying the docu- ment. . In Jordan on Wednesday, on the 'eve of Baker's visit, senior Jordanian officials expressed pessimism that the American effort to assemble a Mideast peace conference mext month can yield concrete results resolving the 40-year Arab-Israeli conflict. Crown Prince Has-:san said in an interview that it was '"high time" for incentives to be imade to Jordan in order to enlist iits help in the peace process.

A secretary in Yeltsin's office and a spokesman for his press office said the 60-year-old Russian Federation leader decided to go home after being examined by his doctor. While the severity of Yeltsin's condition was not clear, Tass the Russian government's new agency and a secretary in his office said Yeltsin suffered a "minor heart attack." The independent Interfax news agency called it a "cardiac insufficiency." But Yeltsin's spokesman and the Russian Information Agency said the president's condition was not serious enough to prevent him from giving a speech to the Russian legislature today. His press secretary, Pavel Voshchanov, said Yeltsin's ailment was less serious than a heart at- TABLE PAD CO.

S.?rs;. did not respond when asked directly if Syria would boycott a peace conference if Congress overrides President Bush's demand for a 120-day delay in consideration of the loan guarantees. The loans would help Israel build housing for Soviet immigrants. On Wednesday, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens said he was tack. "I'd rather say he felt some pain in the heart," Voshchanov told The Associated Press. "In the morning he told his secretary that Boris Yeltsin he was not feeling well. But he came out of the office himself and got into the car that took him home." In Russian, the phrase 'heart attack' has a broader meaning than in English and is commonly used to refer to a range of ailments from chest pains to actual heart failure. After the abortive coup in August, Yeltsin emerged as the most popular political figure in the Soviet Union. He is leading the effort to work out a new power-sharing agreement between the central government of Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and the republics. Yeltsin appeared in good health in recent public appearances. the transitional government's economic management committee. Officials planning solutions to the Soviets' economic and political crisis were "serious and realistic," Brady said, adding that he found little evidence of the "games playing" of the past in elaborate plans for renewal. Talking with reporters before meeting Brady, Silayev invoked the ultimate Soviet alarm for urgent action. "It is winter, and it does not wait," he said. The larger task of building economic and political bonds among the separate republics will take 10 to 15 years, President Mikhail Gorbachev estimated in the newspaper Izvestia. He said that "within the next two or three years" new government processes and positive change should take place. STORE CLOSES FOREVER SAT.
