Carter finds rough
going in Mexico City
MEXICO CITY (UPI)
Carter, replying that Mexico can also be
a difficult neighbor, told President Jose
Lopez Portillo yesterday that it was time
-for both nations to bury past differences
, and move on to better relations.
Carter hosted a state , dinner at the U.S.
embassy residence, about four miles
from the embassy where several hun-
dred angry students chanting "Carter
' Go Home" tried tb'mareh' earlier. His
reply was in response tb Lopez Portillo's
slap at the United 'States on Wednesday.
In a carefully-worded response, Carter
told the Mexican president that
"perhaps our greatest challenge is to
* adopt attitudes toward each other that
are suited not to the past, but to the
realities of the present and the needs of
Earlier, the chanting student
demonstrators tried to march on the
U.S. Embassy but were dispersed by 500
police using nightsticks, horses and tear
li gas. The students retreated to a nearby
plaza where they burned an effigy of
Uncle Sam as they shouted "Burn
without our oil!"
Before the dinner, Carter told
reporters that his talks with Lopez
Portillo had "gone very well" and that
a the Mexican leader's slap at American
intentions Wednesday was wrong.
Lopez Portillo accused the United
States of wanting better diplomatic
relations because of "a surprising
mixture of interest, disdain and fear."
"The people of the United,States are
0 fair and decent people, in their dealings
with each other and in dealings with
other nations," Carter said in his dinner

planes and helicopters. Spokesman
Hodding Carter said that two chartered

carrying 400 people, would be flown to
Carter said the planned evacuation
.could not proceed before tomorrow
because of religious holidays in Iran
yesterday and today. During those
festivities, American planes will not be
allowed to enter the country.
The Pentagon said its military airlift
command centers in Europe and the
United States were being made ready for
Processing centers were being set up
around the city for the' American
evacuees to gather. Embassy sources
said as many as 6,000 of the more than
8,000 Americans would probably take
advanatage of the evacuation airlift.
However, when embassy officials
asked the new Khomeini regime for
buses to help pick up Americans from
around the battle-scarred capital and
take them to the processing centers,
aides to the 78-year-old Moslem holy
man brusquely turned them down.
"When the time comes, we will give
you buses and everything you require,
but not before," a Khomeini aide
The American evacuation plans
clearly irked the Khomeini camp.
A spokesman for the Khomeini camp
said, "You can tell the American public,

Noting comments Lopez Portillo made
two years ago about difficulties of being
a U.S. neighbor, Carter said, "It is also
difficult to be the neighbor of a nation
such as yours."
Carter cited the "rapid change and
development" of Mexico and the fact its
"new economic power obliges its leaders
to make difficult choices and to accept
expanded responsibilities." .
Carter predicted a .favorable conclusion
to his three-day state visit in which he
and Lopez Portillo have tried to solve the
difficult problem of illegal Mexican
migrant workers, and Carter has made a
bid to buy oil and natural gas from
Mexico whose stocks are reputed to be
larger than Saudi Arabia's.
Carter's visit got off to a shaky start
Wednesday when Lopez Portillo rebuked
him publicly at a formal lunch for
cancelling an agreed-upon purchase of
Mexican natural gas two years ago.
Yesterday the shouts of "Carter go
home!" near the embassy mingled with
shouts of "our petroleum is ours!"
Carter's low-key remarks, as
prepared for delivery, focused on the
fact that "inevitably differences will
arise from time to time" but that he is
confident both nations can work them
Carter, speaking in an agricultural
village 100 miles south of Mexico City,
ignored the rebuff and lecture from
Lopez Portillo and told reporters he
thought Lopez Portillo would agree that
their discussions went smoothly.
Carter and Lopez Portillo arranged a
final, unscheduled breakfast meeting
today and planned to issue a statment

than a situation such as the one which
started last year's Rent Wars, when A
