Forced into Lame Duck Stance, Henry Leaves Latins Grumbling WASHINGTON (LENS) Henry Kissinger last week completed his first official trip to South America as Secretary of State. Such a trip has been a long time coming. Kissinger did have one meeting with Latin American foreign ministers in Mexico in 1974, but visible diplomacy in Latin America has never been one of the Nixon or Ford administrations' strong points. If Kissinger's tour of six countries — Venezuela, Peru, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica and Guatemala —had a single purpose, it was to make up for this neglect. Earlier trips, it is true, were planned, only to be pushed aside by the demands of negotiating in the Middle East in 1974 and by the fall of Saigon last year. Having postponed his trip until an election year, Kissinger has been obliged to reveal to his hosts, more perhaps than he would have wished, how limited his freedom of action has become. In Brazil he signed an agreement which, among other tokens of friendship, provides for an exchange of visits once a year, with the Secretary of State going to Brazil and the Brazilian foreign minister coming to Washington. But no Secretary of State can do much to calm Brazil's growing, irritation with Anverican trade protectionism against its exports. Under the terms of the 1974 trade act, complaints against cheap imports and the decision whether and when to retaliate against them are simply not in the State Department's hands. Again, Kissinger, had to plead last month before Congress to include Venezuela and Ecuador, the two Latin American members of Opec, in the system of special trade preferences for developing countries from which Congress had excluded them. The United States no longer wishes to dominate Latin America, but to negotiate about economic matters on a basis of equality. Kissinger said as much in Venezuela. That is a timely admission of the diplomatic strengths of Brazil, Venezuela and Peru, all leading actors in the "dialogue" between rich nations and poor. Kissinger favors schemes to stabilize the export earnings of poor primary producers, but wants those schemes kept within the grasp of existing institutions like the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, where the voice of the United States is still listened to. Kissinger said $300 million worth of non-military aid to the poorer countries of Latin America would continue. Peru, however, faces a cutting off of aid in response to the nationalization of American mining companies. As Kissinger had to admit, there is not much he can do about this if it happens, since the Administration in this area is constrained by law. If Kissinger's hands were free Timei Herald, Carroll, la.

Hut Kissinger is not free. Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina leads a strong group in Congress which opposes replacement of the 1903 treaty with a new agreement yielding sovereignty. Ronald Reagan has the issue of Panama in his sights as well. He has said that handing over control of the zone would be to give up the defense of the American hemisphere "on the instal- ment plan."

The State Department is ready to contemplate the eventual withdraw! of this force, but Kissinger is not likely to press that view far unless Reagan's star fades. Some slowing down in the pace of accomodation between America and Cuba was inveitable during an election year. The fact that Florida, with its close to 500,000 Cuban and anti-Castro immigrants, votes early on in the primary elections would have taken care of that by itself. Cuba's military expedition to Angola has killed all chances of early change dead. Yet matters with Cuba had gone further before Angola than it is probably now politic to admit.

The United States embargo continues, but attempts have more or less ended to persuade other Latin American countries not to re-export American goods to Cuba Before the Angola question supervened, contacts were afoot to see how diplomatic ties could be improved. Support, for a renewed diplomatic offensive against Cuba does not. look strong. All the countries Kissinger visited, save Guatemala, have diplomatic and trade relations with Cuba. Both Brazil and Peru recognize the new government in Angola. Venezuela, which is rather nearer Cuba than the others, has not done so yet, but Colombia plans to do so when the new government establishes itself. This suggests that Cuba's African adventure provokes less alarm in Latin America than might be supposed. The president of Colombia even said that "This is not the first time that one of the countries in the hemisphere has been involved in extra- hemisphere affairs." However inappropriate such a comparison of America's involvement in Vietnam to Cuba's in Angola may be, what is significant is that the remarks should have been made at all.
