Congressional favor given for more Salvadoran aid

By

The Reagan administration has won bipartisan support from congressional leaders for plans to step up military aid to El Salvador's embattled government. Secretary of State Alexander Haig met leaders of both parties to discuss newly assembled evidence that Cuba and Soviet-bloc countries were sending large quantities of arms to leftist Salvadoran guerrillas. Charles Percy, Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, said said he would not rule out the use of US troops in El Salvador but said it would be highly unlikely. The administration did not say what it will request asincreased aid to El Salvador.
