COMMENT: ARISTIDE'S PROPOSAL REPRESEHTS LITTLE CHANGE IN HIS POSITION. BUT HE PRESUMABLY HOPES TOUBLIC RELATIONS ADVANTAGE IN THE TALKS BY APPEARING MORE FLEXIBLE. HITH CONTINUED INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT FOR THE EMBARGO, HOWEVER, HE PROBABLY SEES LITTLE REASON TO BEND ON HIS OTHER CONDITIONS. ESULT OF THE GROWING DISTRUST OF HIS CANDIDACY, THEODORE PROBABLY HOULD DECLINE THE PRIME-MINISTERSHIP UNLESS ARISTIDE RELENTS ON HIS PRECONDITIONS EVEN SO. IF ENLISTED TROOPS CONCLUDE THEODORE IS ABOUT TO TAKE THE POST ON AgJSTIOf'S TERMS. PROSPECTS FOROUP HOULD GREATLY INCREASE.
