WQ/ Serving Columbus, Daytoi^StSl'^SrSouthwestem Ohio ^ ,0r—'^'-^' w Vol. 44, No 12 FRIDAY, MARCH A 1966 -- 4 NISAN. 5726 * ivi)iono3M08tf sr Viet Nam Holds Negotiations With Israel On Special Help X ¦WASHINGTON, (JTA) — Negotiations are now In progress for Israeli assistance involving "Nahal" instructors to serve in South Viet Nam, South Vietnamese Ambassador Vu Van Thai dis¬ closed in an interview here. Nahal is a part of the Israeli army whose members live and work hi kibbutzim and other agricultural settlements. The Ambassador visualized a formula for diplomatic contacts between South Viet Nam and Israel that would fall short of full recognition. At present, tliere are no regular' diplomatic rela¬ tions between the two govern¬ ments. State Department sources predicted, meanwldle,' that Sai¬ gon would, in the near future, establish formal diplomatic re¬ lations with Israel. The Arab states, according to the Ambas¬ sador,' have threatened to rec¬ ognize the National Uberation Front (Viet Cong) if normal dip- plomatic relations are establish¬ ed between Saigon £ind Jeru¬ salem. AMBASSADOR THAI said the Idea for an active Israeli role In support of his nation was suggested by President Johnson at the recent Honolulu confer¬ ence. Mr. Thai accompanied the President to Hawaii, then, went vvith Vice-President Hubert H. Humphrey to Viet Nam. In the course of the Honolulu talks, the Ambasador said. President John¬ son named Israel among those nations he wished to assume ex¬ panded and meaningful roles-In suport of the Saigon regtaie. 'Ambassador Thai 'stated that Vice-President Humphrey was enthusiastic about the idea of ta' creased Israeli tavolvement, and tiiat detailed negotiations were conducted with Israeli diplomats when Jiir. Humphrey stopped In Bangkok. Israel. malntatas a diplomatic mission In Bangkok, but Is not officially represented In Saigon. AMBASSADOR Thai recalled that he personally head a South Vietnamese delegation that vis¬ ited Israel In 1958. He said he wasf "deeply Impressed" by the kibbutz movement, especially the Nahal defense ' communities of soldler.farmers, as ideal for South Viet Nam. He also wanted Israeli aid on irrigation prob¬ lems. But Ngo Dtah Nhu, broth¬ er of the then president 'Ngo Dlnh Diem, overruled the Vu Van Thai proposals because of the fear of Arab reaction, said the Ambassador. "This made me very angry," he added. Initiative by jolmson and Humphrey Pleases Saigon Government The South Vietnamese diplo¬ mat said the present Saigon Government was pleased . that negotiations have now been pro¬ ceeding with Israel "at the ta- Itlatlve df President Johnson and Vice-President Humphrey, tmd witli American help." He said that Israel, In 1964, gave Saigon $5,000; worth of medical suppUi and provided some scholarshl; for study in Israel in technlci economic, and social develo] ment. ' "But we do not have the peo¬ ple to send to Israel for trata¬ ing," he declared. "We are em¬ battled and our needs are ur¬ gent. We need Israelis to come to Viet Nam — Nahal advisors, especially, because there are no better experts than Israelis to teach our people to build defense comunities to develop the coun¬ try, consolidate the people, and fight tafiltration and attack. The defense kibbutz exactly meets our needs, with some adapta¬ tions, of course, to the national characteristics of our people. 'We would most warmly welcome help of the ktad from Israelis Israelis who come to Viet Nam." HE EMPHASIZBD that direct Involvement by Israeli Nahal ad¬ visors was a top priority matter. Medical and other forms^ of as- slstEmce by specialists would al¬ so be welcomed, he SEdd. S^gon would be pleased If Israel sent medical teams, but he ta<Ucated that such aid from Israel was secondary ta Importance. He said he has' heard from the Vietnamese charge d'affaires ta Bangkok on the progress of the Israeli negotiations. The reason that forma] Israeli- South Vietnamese diplomatic re¬ lations have not yet been estab¬ lished arises from Arab threats to recognize the Communist-con¬ trolled National Liberation Front and "our own policy of avoiding entanglement ta the racism and religious frictions of the Arabs ahd Israel," said the Ambassa¬ dor.
