Nor~ he said, .. would he be firing Secretary .. of State George Shultz or any other top foreign : policy advisers as a result of public controversy over the covert operation. Presidential spokesman Larry Speakes, meanwhile, said Reagan had told him there woUld be no further arms shipments but that the \intelligence finding,\ a Jan. 17 docu- ·i merit authorizing the ,weapons and spare parts sales, is technically \still in effect\ because it carried no time limit and has not been rescinded. The spokesman,' also said the Iranians paid cash for the military supplies' the)' received under Reagan's order, although neither the amount nor the precise weaponcy sup- plied has been disclosed. The Iranians lorl_g have been seeking a variety of weapons and spare parts fqr tJieir :U.S.-made planes and equipment ordered and paid for wb.en the U.S. Embassy in Teb.ran was seized and ~ericans were taken hostage.

Weinberger said Monday the United States would never trade ''St~ W. ars' ~·or b~a.,.nc:;ed conventional strength in Europe for a new arms control accord with the SoViet Union.

B~~ regardless of whether such an accord is negotiated, he contmued, the Western alliance must continue improving its conventional strength. \In any event, we can never leave the equation of deter- rence unbalanced by taking out some effetive deterrents without replacing them with other deterrents/' Weinberger declared. The defense secretary appeared before a symposium on NATO, which was sponsored by the Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis. A text of his speech was released in advance at the Penta_gon.
