AIUM* Mtmr, JMeS. lOT -International. Kremlin official denies divided leadership .MOSCOW (AP) - No. 2 Kremlin leader Yegor K. Ligachev broke his silence Saturday on reports that he leads a conservative faction and said enemies are trying to divide a leadership united behind Mikhail S. Gorba- chev's reforms. "Adversaries in the West, and some people in our country too, are making allegations about differences among the Soviet leadership, in the Politburo," the 67-year-old Ligachev said. • "These allegations have been made more than once, which means they are being toade deliberately. Trying to drive a wedge in the leadership it a notorious trick," be said. The Soviet news agency Tats carried Ligachev's remarks, made at a meeting in Togliatti, a Volga River port 600 miles east of Moscow. They were his first comments on an excerpt of the speech broadcast on the evening television news program "Vremya," the round-faced, gray-haired Ligachev told an auditorium of Toguatti officials and residents that the Soviet Union's enemies are foolish to try to divide the leadership. "Hit worked in the pMt,wn»n they threw out falsehoods about previous leading figures, and K led lathe ruin of people, then in current CQMitiou, such t tfick simply won't go through, for these are different times, with a different policy and different leaden," Ligachev declared. "All the members of the leadership, with Mikhail Gorbachev at their head, are deeply committed to the cause of perestroika," he said. Ligachev, a full member of the 13-man ruling Politburo in charge of Communist Party ideology, has indicated in earlier speeches that Gorbachev's policy of "glasnost," or openness, has gone too far in criticizing past economic and social policies. There have been other signs that he favors a more cautious approach than Gorbachev to perestroika, the program of restructuring Soviet society. Gorbachev got into the fray Wednesday. He told the first news conference in Moscow by a Soviet leader that the Communist Party's policy-making Central Committee does not share Yeltsuvs views. Such public airing of top-echelon Kremlin disagreement is unprecedented. Yegor K.

Cttan's official Islamic Republic HfcSB Agency, also monitored in SBittia, said Revolutionary Guards and Iraqi dissident forces killed or wounded 200 Iraqi troops in repelling an attack on positions in the Shemiran mountains in northeast' Iraq on Friday. The Iranians and Kurdish guerrilla allies seized the heights in the Darbandikhan region of Kurdistan in Febriiary,. ! There was no word from Iraq on fighting in that region. Iraq has been expected to launch assaults in that area following its success in driving the Iranians out of two other key footholds on Iraqi soil — the southern Faw Peninsula on April 18 and a bridgehead east of the southern port of Basra May 25. IfiJanother development, Austrian PreSdeht Kurt Waldheim arrived in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia, Saturday on a state visit. The rest of his planned gulf tour was scrapped because of a scheduled Arab summit conference on the Palestinian issue.
