f W EL'S tfcjjAT, NOT. 18,1991 " i 1LTTKFYILLB fAWCT CUimiER IfBWt W/IQ'J on Korea Issue Demos or GOP? By ARTHUR EDSON ' (For JAMES M AH LOW) ' , WASHINGTON Ifh-As the presidential campaign moved into Its final weeks, the Republicans m«de the Korean War their No', i issue. Democratic blundering, the Republicans said, led to — and prolonged—the w«r, "I shall go to Koiea," D'wight' D. Eisenhower said, and seek an early and honorable end to the tenting. ™ A cheap attempt lo play politics with peace, the Democrats replied. Who was right and who was wrong isn't so important now. What is important is this: x Thq No. 1 issue now turns into the No. 1 problem for'the hew "administration. And the battle lines in Korea, and the political battle lines' in the United Nations, are so drawn that neither eide seems in position t score a convincing, break-through. The diplomatic stalemate has been illustrated again Ihlg'week in arguments before the United Nations. Dispute Over Prisoners The dispute now Is over the 121,000 prisoneis of war held by the U.K. forces. Should these prisoners of war be turned over to the North Koreans even If (hoy dori't-.want to go? (It • should be remembered that even if this problem Is settled there's no guarantee that another won't bob up immediately to take It-j place ) Andrei Y. Vishinsky, Soviet foreign mlrister, gave his country's :ofl-slated view Monday. It was. yes, they must be turned back. Rubsia,' he said, will not budge on this issue. ^Yesterday Anthony Eden, British foreign secretary, gave his country's oft staled view It was, no, the prisoners of war should have • choice. "Alter an armistice," Eden said, "a prisoner of war may not be either forcibly detained or forcibly repatriated " Prime Minister AVinston Church- Ill, speaking in london, came up with a.more vivid picture. "It would, be "dishonor," Church 111 said, "to send thousands of helpless prisoners of war % back by force to be massacred by the Chinese government, which has actually rid itself of two millions of Its own people." The U N ijtalemite Wdb emphasized further bv the resignation of Trygye Lie, its secretary general Lie long had been m the Soviet doghouse because he called Ihe North Korean m\asion a Communist aggression, ' He Saul he hoped his rcsi^nat would help the UN. sa\e the peace. But since the TJ. S., Russia, Britain Prance and Nationalist China must agree on a'successbr—at a time when they haven't been able to agree on the time of day - Lie's hope looks like'sMong stibt bet Whether Eisenhower will pick up anything. in Korea that m»y leid •;o » solution of his No. 1 problem remains', to be seen. But the man on the spot..G«n. James A. Van', Fleet, commander of the Eighth Army In Korea/has said he's sure the trip will .help :he president-elect. 200 Nabbed In Thailand As Plotters BANGKOK, Thailand W) — Thai police have arrested more than 200 persons 'suspected of plotting to overthrow the government and establish a communist regime.
