Wednesday, October 5. \vn North Korea Pushing U.S. To End War TOKYO (UPf) - North Korea, America's unrelenting enemy in Asia for a generation, is openly asking the United States to come to the bargaining table to settle the 1950-53 Korean War. . ' .The campaign for face-to- face talks was carried directly to the U.S. public Sept. 28 by, North Korean Foreign minister ' Ho Dam, In an interview.with United Press international. Expressing hope that "abnormal and hostile" relations between the two countries could be eased. Ho said North Korea already had. declared its Intention ' to enter into negotiations with the United State* for a peace agreement. "But there was no response from the United Stales," he added. The North Korean campaign actually was launched in 1974 in a speech Ho made before the Pyongyang parliament, and was forwarded by the /North Korean government to the U.S. Congress in the form of a letter. However, it was not until the Carter administration that the North Koreans-began to push the idea seriously. There Is one catch in Ho s offer that has made it unacceptable to the U.S. State Department, and both the Ford and Carter Administrations, The 53 year-old North Korean foreign minister insists that only the United Stales and North Korea do the talking. The Carter Administration responded to Ho by repeating the longstanding U.S. position that South Korea also must be at the bargaining table. Even on that point Ho showed a little flexibility. Later on Sept. 28 he told Japan's Kyodo news agency that inclusion of the South Koreans was something that could be "studied" after the United Stales and North Korea began talking. North Korea's signals to Washington started in January, with the inauguration of Carter, when the official KCNA news. j agency abruptly dropped the abusive language It had been using against nigh American officials. KCNA's attacks on the Ford Administration were cast in words seldom heard in International news broadcasting. Ford himself was called a "wicked and vicious rascal." At various times, KCNA used the eplthel "b " for James Schleslnger and Donald Rumsfeld. Ford's two defense secretaries. Its attacks on former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger were on a level that made them unreportable In the U.S. news media. Ford Incurred North Korea s special hatred by visiting South Korea shortly alter his Inauguration, and personally pledging support to South Korean President Park Chung Hec. The North Korean news outlets criticize Carter fof the slow pace of his program to withdraw U.S. ground troops from South Korea. But the personal abuse is gone, North Korea has used two intermediaries this year to notify the White House of its desire for negotiations. One was President Omar Bongo of Gabon, chairman of the Organization for African Unity. Bongo visited Pyongyang in May, and later sent Carter a letter on what he heard at the time from North . Korea's President Kim II Sung. The other was Yugoslav President Tito, who was in Pyongyang in late August. He is reported to have received a letter from Carter before the visit, setting forth the American position on the Korean question. The content of what Kim said N to Tito was relayed to the White House ~;ln'late September by Yugoslav .Vice President Evard Kardelj. • ' , . ', Ho's latest moves have been shrewdly timed to take advantage of South Korea's difficulties with the United States over the alleged bribery of U.S. Congressmen by wealthy South Koreans. $150 Million Borrowed To Test Credit PORT OF SPAIN. iVtnldad (UP1) - The republic- of Trinidad and Tobago Is of-- flclally designated a less developed country, and It recently borrowed *150 million from a consortium of ,11 In--' ternatlonal banks. . But what makes Trinidad and Tobaoo different from most otheffcDCs is the fact It did not need the money. . Victor Bruce, chairman orlne Republic's' central •bank.^an-^, nounced when \the loan,,«jM ; ' negotrated that It was "to test the dreditworthlness of the . "prtme Minister Eric William* »aldi-'"Establlshmenl-of a country's crcditworthincss could- most favorably be achieved at a time when, in strlcj terms, debt financing is not specifically required. Because in the eyes of the financial •markets, the Ideal debtor is one with no 1 money." • :'•' CELEBRAT6 WITH US-IT& OUR WELCOME TO OUR CELEBRATION!
