Iran rejects compromise as war flares on border

Iran rejected all compromise solutions for an end to the Persian Gulf war Monday amid reports of a flare-up in fighting along its border with Iraq.

Iranian radio said Tehran would ''never yield to an imposed peace'' but would stick by its fourfold demand for an end to the two-year-old conflict. That includes the unconditional withdrawal of Iraqi troops from Iranian territory, the identification and punishment of the aggressor, the payment of war reparations, and the return of more than 100,000 exiled Iraqis to their homeland. In a separate dispatch, Iran reported new clashes along the international frontier.
