ADL DISTURBED BY REPORTS OF ARGENTINE-SYRIAN NUCLEAR LINK

New York, NY, August 25, 1995...Extremely disturbed by reports that Argentina has signed an agreement to provide Syria with training and nuclear materials, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) urged Argentina to reconsider its decision.

In a letter to Argentine Foreign Minister Guido Di Tella, David H. Strassler, ADL National Chairman, and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, said that "while Israel and Syria have conducted a number of negotiation sessions, no peace agreement between the two neighbors has been signed. Indeed, despite these negotiations, Syria continues to support anti-Israel terrorist organizations, most prominently Hizbollah, and remains on the U.S. Department of State's list of countries which sponsor terrorism."

Earlier this month a Syrian diplomatic and scientific delegation arrived in Buenos Aires to discuss possible transfers of nuclear technology.

"At this time," Strassler and Foxman said, "any enhancement of Syria's nuclear program -- even with materials intended for civilian or `peaceful' use -- represents a potential security threat to the State of Israel."
