AL MASSAA, the Cairo daily, declared thit new units which ar¬ rived recently at Alexandria had made the Egyptian nayy the strongest striking power ta the Middle East. One report said tbat ,Bgpyt was negotiating for three additional squadrons of Soviet MIG-19 jet fighters and Several more submarines. Al Massaa also reported that the naval units, which It said car¬ ried the most modem weapons equipment, arrived from Ci;echo- slovakla and Russia during the weekend. Egyptian Goveminent officials declined to deny or con¬ firm the reports. The State De¬ partment in Washington de¬ clined to comment on the reports. ACQORDING TO another re¬ port the bases sought in Egypt would be in replacement for the base lost by the Soviets in Al¬ bania as a result of the Commun- st-power struggle whloh led to a oreaklng off of diplomatic ties lietween the USSR' and Albania. The Albanian base waa the only one the Soviets had in the Medi¬ terranean Sea. Israel's best friend among the Western Powers, France, also re¬ acted strongly to the reported weapons agreement. French offi¬ cials In Paris refardeid the de¬ velopment as a serious threat to peace pot only for Israel but also for the entire Mediterranean area. FRANCE HAS conadstenUy tak¬ en the position that Nasser repre¬ sented one of the most dangerous threats to Western influence to the Middle EJast and North Africa. The reported agreement was viewed by French officials here as confirmation of th&t judgments. The French press expressed concern edltoriaUy about the pos¬ sible consequences of the reported S o v 1 e t-Bgyptlan understandtog. The Aurore declared that "we hope that our Amerioan friends will now finaUy reaUze the blund¬ er they made five years ago when they saved the Egyptian dictator during the Suez campaign." Observers in Paris anticipate that the stiffening French atti¬ tude toward Nasser would J»6 ex¬ pressed to Increased aid •'t<> Is¬ rael. The influential Le Monde asked whether the United States totended to adopt a Middle East policy which would be "somethtog else than a constant submission to blackmail."
