MO Weapon sellers will share Mideast client lists NEW YORK TIMES LONDON The United States, the Soviet Union, China, Britain and France have agreed to share information with one another about their sales of tanks, artillery, military aircraft, ships and some missile systems to countries in the Middle East. The U.S. assistant secretary of state for politico-military affairs, Richard Clarke, said on Friday that the five countries had also agreed on guidelines for the export of conventional weapons anywhere in the world. "This is a major breakthrough, the first time in history that five great powers have agreed on rules governing their export of arms," Clarke said at the end of a two-day meeting at Lancaster House. The guidelines are the result of an agreement among most of the five countries that the uncontrolled race to sell arms to Iraq had backfired on them when the Persian Gulf war began last winter. The United States hopes the agreement will bring a reduction in arms transfers to the i Middle East, Clarke said. The arrangements for sharing information about sales of the major categories of conventional weapons to the region will not come into effect until next year. The five countries, which account for 85 of arms exports, said that they would continue their talks in the hope of regulating exports of all ground-to-ground missiles. Major reservations about missiles were apparently expressed by China, which made the Silkworm missiles that Iraq used against ships in the gulf last winter.

Israel's arsenal examined Book: Nuclear arms underestimated THE NEW YORK TIMES WASHINGTON A new book says Israel has a nuclear arsenal far larger than previously suspected by the U.S. government, and further asserts that a principal potential target for those arms has been the Soviet Union. The book, by Seymour M. Hersh, an investigative reporter, says the Israelis have gone to full nuclear alert meaning that nuclear missiles have been wheeled out of silos and put on launchers three times, twice during the 1973 war and once earlier this year,' while Israel was under missile attack from Iraq. In those cases, the book says, the targets would have been the Arab nations threatening Israel. Soviet cities targeted But, quoting Israeli and American officials, Hersh says Israel's central strategic doctrine during the 1970s and much of the 1980s was that the Soviet Union should know that it was under the threat of Israeli nuclear attack.

Israel has never acknowledged that it possesses nuclear weapons, though the United States and other governments have long maintained that Israel has a substantial stockpile of nuclear arms. The Israeli government's general response to the allegations in Hersh's book was to restate the formulation it always offers when asked about its nuclear program. "Israel is not going to be the first to introduce nuclear arms in the Middle East," said Defense Ministry spokesman Danny Naveh. Hersh was a reporter for the New York Times from 1972 to 1979. He is a contract employee in the paper's Washington bureau, at work on a special project. Electoral repercussions . These are some of the other assertions in his book, The Samson Option, which is scheduled to be published today: Late in President Eisenhower's second term, intelligence officials ordered Gary Powers and other U-2 pilots to carry out surveillance flights over the site where Israel was building its nuclear reactor at Dimona. ; By the end of 1958, former government officials say, Washington was convinced Israel was at work to produce a bomb. But successive presidents, with the exception of President Kennedy, did little to restrain the Israeli program, afraid of adverse electoral repercussions at home. Bin the 1950s and 60s, the French government sent hundreds of scientists and engineers to help the Israelis design and build their underground nuclear compound at Dimona. False control room ; President Kennedy repeatedly pressed David Ben-Gurion, the Israeli prime minister, to give .assurances that Israel was not pursuing the development of nuclear weapons. He finally won permission for an American inspector to examine the Dimona plant once each year. But the Israelis built a false control room and other fake sites and managed to convince the inspector year after year that Dimona was involved only in academic research. I 1 Israel first went on nuclear alert early in the 1973 war, when Israel's leaders were convinced that the nation might be overrun within days. Hersh says the Israelis "blackmailed" the United States, in essence, by threatening that they would have to use their nuclear weapons if the Nixon administration did not immediately supply replacements for aircraft and ammunition expended in the war. 0 That's right Loan sale.
