^WASHINGTON — The United
States tried to persuade the deposed
Bh of Iran to remain in Panama,
fearing that his departure might
Bther exacerbate the Iranian hos-
^t§ge crisis, it was learned Monday.
■ Obviously, our desire was that
the surgery be performed in Pana
ma, said a White House official.
‘Whether that (the shah’s trip to
Egypt) has any impact on the hostage
■ation is debatable. We obviously
wmld have preferred not to take a
i But the official also indicated all
i not been well between the Pana-
ian government and the shah de-
ite earlier assurances from Panama
bat he was welcome in the country.
■There were some statements
Bade by the shah’s people which
iffended Panama,” the official said.
Ie did not elaborate.
The official said the shah “always
iad assurances that he would not he
extradited to Iran.” But it was also
learned that the shah was puzzled
over why Panama continued to indi
cate to Iran that it would consider
extradition of the shah with the filing
of a petition from Iran scheduled this
White House national security
adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski said
Sunday the administration was com
mitted to allow the shah to return to
the United States for surgery, but
the shah decided he would be bet
ter off in Egypt.
White House chief of staff Hamil
ton Jordan flew to Panama last Thur-
say with the President Carter’s chief
counsel, Lloyd Cutler, to try to
smooth out a rift between the Pana
manian government and the shah
over his medical treatment.
The official said Jordan ironed out
the difficulties and got the problem
of the shah’s surgery resolved be
tween Panamanian and U.S. doc
tors, “But by that time, the shah
had made up his mind to leave.”
The official also denied — despite
claims by Iran — that former Secret
ary of State Henry Kissinger and
Chase Manhattan Bank Chairman
David Rockefeller were involved in
the latest developments involving
the shah.
The White House official ques
tioned statements by Iranian Fore
ign Minister Sadegh Ghotzbadeh
that, with the filing of an extradition
petition in Panama, the Iranian mili
tants would have turned custody of
U.S. hostages over to government
“We have absolutely no indication
that they were about to release the
hostages,” the official said.
“I don’t think there’s anyone who
takes that serioiusly. They haven’t
kept their promises before. They
have always said if they got the shah
back they would release the hos
tages, and we have said we can’t op
erate that way.”

cords, said the five companies gave
$694,272 to 352 candidates for feder
al office in 1978. Of that $39,072
went to anti-environmental candi
dates compared to $122,227 to
proenvironmentalists, it said.
