1 A-8World THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Sunday, September 29, 1991 Aftermath of riot Peace talks planned in Soviet Georgia Protests increase in other republic ' U k s . : - , ... 4 I . f I , , . - 1 r Saturday as the united democratic and Islamic forces completed a week of siege against die-hard communists who govern Tadzhiks-tan. Day and night, even in drizzling rain, protesters have remained in tidy rows covering most of Liberty Square, formerly Lenin Square, and others stood in ranks behind them. About 100 colorful tents were pitched among them. One large poster showed the communists' red star painted over with a swastika. Photographs Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin plastered the square. Sporadically, people burst into a chant: "Oh-So-Di, Oh-So-Di," meaning freedom in Tadzhik. They shook their fists at the parliament building across the wide street and shouted: "Resign, resign." ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES TBILISI, U.S.S.R. Georgia's armed standoff took a significant step toward settlement Saturday when allies and enemies of President Zviad Gamsakhurdia agreed to hold high-level negotiations. The ranks of rebel national guard soldiers protecting the opposition headquarters at the Tbilisi television center thinned visibly during the night. Anti-Gamsakhurdia forces, who seemed to be significantly moderating their list of demands, dropped their call for the president's resignation. A starting time for the negotiations wasn't immediately set. Elsewhere in the Soviet Union's restive republics, crowds sympathizing with 200 hunger strikers swelled to more than 10,000 on t'- c I S , .....ii v-i Council OKs plan for talks But Israel still cool to PLO connections ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES NEW YORK The Bush administration got some help from the Palestinian parliament-in-exile on Saturday in trying to set up a Middle East peace conference. But Secretary of State James Baker was only mildly impressed. He said Israel and the Arabs still had not agreed to final terms for the talks the United States and the Soviet Union hope to co-sponsor in October. "I am not going to make any predictions," Baker told reporters in New York during meetings with foreign ministers attending the special session of the U.N. General Assembly. "I think we still have things that have to be done in order to be assured that all of the parties are ready." And yet, he said, "any time we see support for the prospect of trying to create a peace process in the Middle East, we're very glad to see that." The Palestine National Council, which considers itself the legislature for a Palestinian state it hopes to set up, ended a five-day debate in Algiers by approving a statement to allow Palestinians to attend peace talks with Israel. Israel not receptive Despite the Palestinian approval of U.S. efforts to call a Middle East peace conference, Israeli officials Saturday dismissed the decision and rejected any role for the Palestine Liberation Organization. "We stick to our position that the PLO is not a part of the peace process and therefore there is no connection between the Palestine National Council resolution and our commitment to the process," said an official in Jerusalem who spoke on condition of anonymity. Baker has been trying since February to make arrangements for negotiations. He said Palestinians living on Israeli-held territory "have probably the most to gain from a peace process and the most to lose if there isn't one." The Bush administration has refused to endorse Palestinian statehood. But it is pushing for Israel to give up land in , exchange for Arab recognition. ue Oddish 1 P by Nettie Rosenstein 75 Deluxe Boutique $49 value lor only $28.00 Available: Matching Mists $41 .00 value for only $25.00 Gift Basket $37.50 value for only $20.00 All Nettie Rosenstein fragrances available exclusively at Two Convenient Downtown Locations 28 FOUNTAIN SQUARE PLAZA Cincinnati, Ohio 45202 (513)651-4022 HYATT HOTEL 151 W.

The miners forced their way into government headquarters and parliament and fought in the streets with police, who used truncheons, rubber bullets, shotgun pellets and tear gas to quell the demonstrators. Although calm was restored Saturday, the 200,000-member miners' union is striking to demand higher pay and better living conditions.
