FRIDAY, MAY 26, 1950 Middle East Arms Aid Should End Race Danger, State Department Says Y-mryn i v. r<\T?K.Y cmmr™ By JOHN M. HIGHTOWKK + WASHINGTON. May 28. (R't — Slate Department officials said today Ihe new American-British-, French agreement covering Ihc sale if military weapons to the Middle ^flsl should end any danger of an • mis race between Israel and the Arab slate.!. At the same time, they declared, the three power commitment to act against any threat of agrcssion by either Jews or Arahs, coupled with the arms agreement, should lead to a new degree of stability throughout the whole region. If results are In fact accomplished, these officials snid. the Western powers will be able to count on much greater security In a pnrt of the world second only to the North Atlantic area In Its strategic Importance In the cold war with Russia. Outgrowth of Meet The Middle East agreement, announced yesterday, is an outgrowth of the recent meetings In I-ondnn of Secretary of State Acheson. British Foreign Minister Bevin and French Foreign Minister Schunian. One of their purposes- In trying to reach an understanding on the problem wns to eliminate a conflict of interests between the United States and Britain which has long irritated their relations. Up to the time they met. Britain had been selling arms to the Arab stntcs and the United States had been selling arms to Israel. KE.,.., ot the big powers knew In general what the other was doing but no formal agreement covered their actions nor were French interests In Ule area adequately taken into ac- «|'jnt. ^7 Arms Race Danger That the danger OT an arms race existed was recognized as long ago BS August 1949 when representatives of the three governments said In the United Nations security council that they were opposed to such a development.' Yesterday's agreement, agninst ttie background of the fncl that the United States and Britain have been arming the Middle Eastern countries, made three major points: 1. The Western powers, evidently with one eye on Russia, snid that the Arab stales and Israel "need to maintain a certain level ot armed forces" both fo protect their individual security and also for the defense "of the area BS a whole." Arms will be supplied to these countries to "level." Must Give Asst.-anre 2. Each of the governments purchasing arms must give assurances that it does not Intend "to undertake any act of agrcssion against *"l,v other state." , I. The United Stales, Britain and France declared their Intention to act immediately "both within and outside the United Nations" if they find that any of the Arab states or Israel Is preparing to violate the frontiers or the armistice lines o f rhe area. Some State Department officials said that the effect of the agreement could be actually to reduce the amount of arms going into the Palestine-Arab parl c f the world from the Western powers. Thai apparently would depend on whal the Western powers and the military leaders of the Middle Eastern stales determine to be the desirable level of armed forces for the security of the area.
