Saturday, October 19, 1991 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER WorldA-5 Israel, Soviet Union renew diplomatic ties i i JY. It A ft I.. Pankin Levy t fireplace GLASS DOOR d FREE Installation! FIREGUARD Eight Soviet republics sign economic pact THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MOSCOW President Mikhail Gorbachev and the leaders of eight republics signed a landmark treaty Friday for a newly decentralized economic union, but it failed to win the vital support of the Ukraine and three other republics. In addition to the agro-industrial powerhouse of the Ukraine, the cotton- and oil-producing republic of Azerbaijan backed out of the agreement at the last minute. Georgia, which has a wealth of forests, minerals and energy, and Moldavia, which produces tobacco and wine, also refused to sign. But Russian President Boris Yeltsin joined the agreement, and Gorbachev was optimistic the absent republics which include a quarter of the country's 280 million residents would eventually come aboard. Western leaders have made the treaty a precondition for aid to resuscitate the Soviet economy, which has food shortages that are expected to worsen this winter. The treaty, the product of months of arduous debate, will create a single economic zone encompassing most of the Soviet Union. Preliminary drafts called for a single monetary and banking system and cooperation in energy, transportation and communications. But last-minute changes demanded by Yeltsin reportedly would let the republics introduce their own currencies and control the national budget. Reg. $199 Any Size Any Finish THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JERUSALEM Israel and the Soviet Union restored diplomatic ties on Friday after a rupture of 24 years, voicing hope that their new relationship would help promote Mideast peace. Foreign ministers Boris Pankin of the Soviet Union and David Levy of Israel announced the renewed ties an hour before the United States and the Soviet Union said they were inviting Israel and the Arabs to peace talks in Madrid, Spain, on Oct. 30. Israel had long insisted the Soviet Union restore ties with the Jewish state as a condition to participating in peace talks, and the Soviets had promised to renew ties as soon as the date was set for the conference. The joint statement said the Soviet Union and Israel believe resuming diplomatic relations "fully serves the interests of a comprehensive settlement in the Middle East, the establishment of a lasting peace and stability in this region and further development of international cooperation." The Madrid peace conference will deal with the very reason for the rupture of relations the continuing dispute over territories captured by Israel from Moscow's Arab allies in 1967. Pankin said the restoration of ties signals a new, more balanced Soviet policy in the Middle East. "In the past, the Soviet Union tended to sort of side with the FIREGUARD mil hMlaIMM! $249ii r ITl 0 SAV.E ISPff PolithM fern Mi v Dm Of Anil!. tft INOt M WWW I Palestinians and the Arab states, while the United States sided with Israel, and this did not bring any tangible fruit," Pankin said at a news conference with Secretary of State James Baker. Levy said the re-establishment of relations would allow better communication with Moscow. "Clearly, this . . . brings us to a more open dialogue, so that they hear Israeli positions directly, face to face," he said. He also indicated Israel might use the new relationship to apply pressure on Syria, one of its main enemies in the Middle East and long the Soviet's main Arab ally. He called the prolonged diplomatic break a "historic mistake" on the part of the Soviet Union. Still, the resumption of full ties is rather a formality. The two countries exchanged consulates starting in 1987; Moscow relaxed emigration policies, bringing more than 300,000 Soviet Jews to Israel since mid-1989; and cultural and economic contacts are cordial.
