4-A THE GALVESTON DAILY NEWS WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 13,1993 World Report Associated Press continue as search for peace goes on in Somalia MOGADISHU, Somalia — President Clinton's diplomatic troubleshooter talked peace with representatives of warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid on Tuesday, but gunmen fired on two U.N. outposts and attacked a relief convoy. Remains believed to be those of an 18th American soldier killed in a bungled Oct. 3 raid were turned over to U.N. authorities. Capt. Tim McDavitt, a U.N. spokesman, said all missing Americans are now accounted for. Officials released no details of the meeting between Robert Oakley and members of the Somali National Alliance, Aidid's clan-based political group. Oakley is pursuing a peace arrang- ment, and was also expected to press for the release of Chief Warrant Officer Michael Durant of Berlin, N.H., who was captured in the Oct. '••3 ff Aidid 3 raid. Oakley also was expected to seek freedom for a Nigerian private captured earlier and also being held by Aidid. In Washington, Secretary of State Warren Christopher reaffirmed that the United States is downplaying a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for Aidid's arrest.He said the focus is now on trying to reach a political settlement. The United Nations resolutions, of course, remain as they are, but it is a matter of where the focus of U.S. interest is," Christopher said. The negotiations took place against a tense backdrop: - U.S. warplanes buzzed the capital at least three times. Reporters in a pool organized by U.S. forces saw two flyovers by F-18s and one by an A-6. - Gunmen still roamed the battered streets of Mogadishu and fired on two U.N. posts manned by Pakistanis during the night. The Pakistanis returned fire and were not hit, said Maj. David Stockwell, the U.N. military spokesman. The attack shattered a three-day calm since Aidid issued a cease-fire order. Stockwell said the gunmen were believed to be from Aidid's militia. - Bandits attacked a relief convoy from the aid group Irish Concern south of Mogadishu but it managed to reach the city without casualties, McDavitt said. Aidid's faction was reportedly split over whether to free its two hostages now or only after the United Nations released 32 Somali prisoners, including four key aides of Aidid. There was also uncertainty over whether the faction member's who met with Oakley had any real clout with the fugitive warlord. McDavitt said the Somali detainees would be held until U.N. authorities were convinced they played no part in attacks against peacekeepers, and refused journalists' requests to interview them. He added there was no time frame for their release.1t could take months," he said. Stockwell said usually 30 to 40 Somalis were held by U.N. forces at any one time and stayed in detention for an average of 10 days. "7 Maastricht treaty milestone German/a highest court cleared the way for Implementation of the the Maastricht treaty. Under tha treaty, a European Monetary Institute will be opened on Jan. 1 aa the precursor to a Europe-wide central bank that is to be in piace no later than Jan 1, 1999. The independent centra) bank will eventually issue a single currency, repiacing existing national currencies. Cosigners of the Maastricht Treaty ^^i^'; "' _-; 7*-- 7 German court clears way for European unity treaty AP/Wm. J. Castelto/Carl Fox Associated Press BONN, Germany — Germany's highest court ruled Tuesday that the Maastricht Treaty on European union doesn't violate this country's constitution, clearing the way for implementation of the historic accord. The Constitutional Court said it had struck down legal challenges to the treaty, which already has been ratified by the 12 EC nations' parliaments or voters. Final implementation hinged on the German court's approval. The treaty calls for opening a European Monetary Institute on Jan. 1 as the precursor to a Europe- wide central bank, which is to be in place no later than Jan. 1, 1999. The independent central bank will eventually issue a single currency, replacing existing national currencies. Under the accord, the EC nations will work to forge common foreign, security and eventually defense policies. The EC will have more powers in education, public health, culture, consumer protection, industry, research and the environment A negative ruling Tuesday would have created a crisis for the EC, which has staked its future on turning the community into a world power through economic, political and monetary union. The court said it wants assurances that Germany's parliamentary bodies won't lose substantial powers to European institutions. But reservations expressed by the court won't require EC nations to renegotiate the treaty. The pact, negotiated by EC leaders in December 1991 in the Dutch town of Maastricht, was challenged in the Constitutional Court by an odd mix of groups, including nationalistic rightists and the leftist Greens. They argued, among other things, that it violates the nation's constitution by transferring too many national powers to EC headquarters in Brussels, Belgium. The accord is the brainchild of German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and French President Francois Mit- terrand. European leaders hope the treaty will help the EC compete with the United States and Japan by solidifying their economic and political clout. The German court's endorsement is a big boost for the EC, which has tentatively scheduled a celebratory summit of its leaders Oct. 29 in Brussels. The EC's prestige recently has been marred by its inability to stop the bloodshed in Bosnia and the near-collapse of its monetary system. Obituaries Ronald F. Kelirnann EL LAGO, Texas — Ronald F.
