WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. and Iranian officials
appeared to be in agreement Tuesday that resolution of
the hostage crisis will not be possible as long as Iran's
conflict, with Iraq continues. " -. ,
Nonetheless, the State Department issued an appeal
to Iranian authorities not to link the two issues and said
it was in Iran's self-interest to settle the question of the

Speaking with reporters in New York where he is
attending the U.N. General Assembly session,
Secretary of State Edmund S. Muskie said he believed
Iranian consideration of the hostage question probably
would be suspended for the duration of the war
between Iran and Iraq.
Muskie's statement echoed a Tehran radio broadcast
earlier Tuesday, which said the Iranian parliament has
decided to freeze consideration of the hostage question
The Associated Press .
Iraqi ground and air forces struck into Iran along a broad
front Tuesday, zeroing in on the Iranian oil center of Abadan,
as the conflict between the two Persian Gulf military powers
erupted into all-out war. Iran's U.S.-made warpianes hit back
with punishing raids on Iraqi cities and oil targets.
The night sky over Baghdad was alight with anti-aircraft fire
and Iranian bombs "falling all over the place," a witness
Four unidentified Americans were reported killed in Iranian
bombing raids on the petrochemical complex near Basra, Iraq.
The Baghdad government said 47 people were killed and 116
wounded when wave after wave of Iranian jets bombed the
Iraqi capital and other cities, air bases and oil installations in
Iraq. Iran issued no casualty reports from the attacks on its
side of the border.
The Iraqi command claimed 67 Iranian warpianes had been
shot down, but the Iranians conceded the loss of only two.
Iran said it sent 140 planes into battle.
The fiery attacks on Iranian and Iraqi oil installations stirred
new concern that the war might seriously disrupt the flow of
oil from the Persian Gulf.
U.S. officials said the Strait of Hormuz, the narrow
southern entranceway to the Gulf, remained open. But an oil
industry source in New York said two Iranian warships were
patrolling the strait to stop ships bound to or from Iraq.
Meanwhile ' in New York, the Carter administration,
asserting a "special stake" in the Persian Gulf region,
supported a United Nations effort to end the growing conflict
between Iraq and Iran. y
The U.N. Security Council went into private consulations
Tuesday evening at the request of Secretary-General Kurt
Waldheim, who called the fighting a grave threat to world

U.S. officials said that while the
maintain strict neutrality, it would back mediation efforts even
if they stem from Iranian accusations that Iraq is largely
responsible for the new fighting.
Secretary of State Edmund S. Muskie acknowledged,
however, that the two warring Middle East nations might
ignore the Security Council if it called for a cease-fire.
"I don't have the answer to that question in advance," he
said after conferring with Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim
and five Western foreign ministers. "But I would guess that all
nations that are members of the United Nations are aware of
its influence on world opinion and world opinion still

consider taking unilateral action to protect Western oil

because of the war with Iraq.
But State Department spokesman Jack Cannon said
the issue of the hostages must be addressed on its own
merits -adding -that Iran would serve its own best
interests if it released the 52 Americans, who spent their
325th day in captivity on Tuesday.
"We would of course be concerned over any delay of
consideration of the hostage situation," Cannon said.
"We hope the Iranian parliament will realize that it is
in Iran's best interest to resume consideration of the
hostage question at the earliest possible moment."
He noted that continued holding of the hostages had
caused Iran severe economic difficulties and had left
the country isolated internationally.
President Jimmy Carter, speaking to a gathering in
Torrance, Calif., on Monday, had suggested that

release of the hostages by Iran could lead to a
resumption of military spare parts deliveries to Iran.
These were suspended last November after the hestege
Carter's statement indicated the possibility that the
United States was siding with Iran, despite official
statements earlier in the day that the United States is
neutral in the conflict.
Cannon refused to elaborate on Carter's statement
and he brushed aside suggestions that the
administration was proposing to Iranian authorities
that they release the hostages in return for a resumption
of delivery cf spare parts for U.S.-made military
Some analysts believe the Iranian military is severely
hampered by the absence of U.S. spare parts, although
Cannon suggested that Iran might be able to obtain
such equipment from other countries.
