WASHINGTON (JTA) -- The State Department said last week that Israel has "formally" asked the United States for $3.45 billion in military and economic aid for fiscal ]981, $1.85 billion in military aid and $1.6 billion in economical aid. The Department said it was not yet prepared to announce a figure from Egypt for the same purposes. Department spokesman Hodding Carter said the LI.S. "will look at the requests inthe context of our close relation- ship with both countries," but he declined to forecast the totals the Carter Administra- tion will ultimately present to Congress for action. The fiscal year 1981 begins Oct. 1,1980. Congress has not yet completed action on the aid appropriations for the fiscal year 1980 that begins on Oct. I. In reporting that Israeli Ambassador Ephraim Evron "submitted formally" israel's aid request recently and discussed it with Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, Carter said that "we will seriously, carefully, consider" the request. Carter observed that for the current fiscal year, Israel is receMng $1.785 billion, of which $1 billion is in military sales credits half of which is forgiveable," and $785 million in security supporting assistance of which he said 57 percent is "forgiveable." Israel, Carter continued, received a grant of $800 million to help build air bases in the rlegev to help replace those bases Israel is giving up in Sinai under its treaty with Egypt, and $2_2 billion in loans to help meet the coast of military relocation in the r, legev. "As always," Carter said, "it (the new aid request) will be viewed in the context of our close relationship to Israel." Asked whether there would be any diff,:ulties in the Congress on the aid for Egypt and Israel, he replied "the Congress has always taken a sympathc look" at Middle East aid for a number of countries. Jordan, Syria and Lebanon also receive LI.S. aid. WiU Stick Close to Present Aid Levd An authoritative Congres- sional source told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that Carter Administration policy seems to be "to stick awfully close to tLe present level of dollar aid" to both Egypt and Israel. This source, like others, noticed that this means actually a cut in the buying power of the appropriated dollar of 10 to ] 5 percent as a result of inflation. In addition, the cost of weaponry has risen beyond those figures. The Senate Appropriations Committee is to consider the aid funding, probably next week. The House last week approved the aid appropri- ations for fiscal 1980 in which Egypt is to receive. $750 million in economic suppor- ting assistance. Egypt also receives more than $300 million in other forms of economic aid, including Food for Peace. In addition, Egypt gets $1.8, billion in special military and ecnomic aid under the Israeli-Egyptian treaty. BEST WISHES for a NAPpy NEW YEAR!
