STATES TELECOMMUNICATIONS TRAINING INSTITUTE. Nothing in this Act, the Communications Act of 1934, or any other Act, shall be construed to preclude the Department of State, the United States Agency for International Development, or the United States Information Agency from participation in support of any activities of the United States Telecommunications Training Institute (including use of staff, other appropriate resources and service of the board of the Institute). SEC. 1308. POLICY TOWARD AFGHANISTAN. (a) FINDINGS.—The Congress finds that,

(1) the Soviet Union invaded the sovereign territory of Afghanistan on December 27, 1979, and continues to occupy and attempt to subjugate that nation through the use of force, relying upon a puppet regime and an occupying army of an estimated 120,000 Soviet troops;

(2) the outrageous and barbaric treatment of the people of Afghanistan by the Soviet Union is repugnant to all freedomloving peoples as reflected in seven United Nations resolutions of condemnation, violates all standards of conduct befitting a responsible nation, and contravenes all recognized principles of international law;

(3) the Special Rapporteur of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, in his November 5, 1985, report to the General Assembly, concludes that “whole groups of persons and tribes are endangered in their existence and in their lives because their living conditions are fundamentally affected by the kind of warfare being waged” and that the “Government of Afghanistan, with heavy support from foreign (Soviet) troops, acts with great severity against opponents or suspected opponents of the regime without any respect for human rights obligations” including "use of antipersonnel mines and of so-called toy bombs" and "the indiscriminate mass killings of civilians, particularly women and children";

(4) the Special Rapporteur also concludes that the war in Af. ghanistan has been characterized by “the most cruel methods of warfare and by the destruction of large parts of the country which has affected the conditions of life of the population, destabilizing the ethnic and tribal structure and disrupting family units” and that the "demographic structure of the country has changed, since over 4 million refugees from all provinces and all classes have settled outside the country and thousands of internal refugees have crowded into the cities like Kabul";

(5) the United Nations General Assembly, in a recorded vote of 80-22 on December 13, 1985, accepted the findings of the Special Rapporteur and deplored the refusal of Soviet-led Afghan officials to cooperate with the United Nations, and expressed "profound distress and alarm" at "the widespread violations of the right to life, liberty, and security of person, including the commonplace practice of torture and summary executions of the regime's opponents, as well as increasing evidence of a policy of religious intolerance";

(6) in a subsequent report of the Special Rapporteur of February 14, 1986, the Special Rapporteur found that “The only solution to the human rights situation in Afghanistan is the withdrawal of the foreign troops" and that “Continuation of the military solution will, in the opinion of the Special Rapporteur, lead inevitably to a situation approaching Genocide, which the traditions and culture of this noble people cannot permit”;

(7) the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan caused the United States to postpone indefinitely action on the SALT II Treaty in 1979, and the presence of Soviet troops in that country today continues to adversely affect the prospects for long-term improvement of the United States-Soviet bilateral relationship in many fields of great importance to the global community;

(8) the Soviet leadership appears to be engaged in a calculated policy of raising hopes for a withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan in the apparent belief that words will substitute for genuine action in shaping world opinion; and

(9) President Reagan, in his February 4, 1986, State of the Union Address promised the Afghan people that "America will support with moral and material assistance your right not just

to fight and die for freedom, but to fight and win freedom”. (b) POLICY.-(1) It is the sense of the Congress that the United States, so long as Soviet military forces occupy Afghanistan, should support the efforts of the people of Afghanistan to regain the sovereignty and territorial integrity of their nation through

(A) the appropriate provisions of material support;

(B) renewed multilateral initiatives aimed at encouraging Soviet military withdrawal, the return of an independent and nonaligned status to Afghanistan, and a peaceful political settlement acceptable to the people of Afghanistan, which includes provision for the return of Afghan refugees in safety and dignity;

(C) a continuous and vigorous public information campaign to bring the facts of the situation in Afghanistan to the attention of the world;

(D) frequent efforts to encourage the Soviet leadership and the Soviet-backed Afghan regime to remove the barriers erected against the entry into and reporting of events in Afghanistan by international journalists; and

many fields of the Unily affect the troops in SAL

(E) vigorous efforts to impress upon the Soviet leadership the penalty that continued military action in Afghanistan imposes upon the building of a long-term constructive relationship with the United States, because of the negative effect that Soviet policies in Afghanistan have on attitudes toward the Soviet

Union among the American people and the Congress. (2) It is further the sense of the Congress that the Secretary of State should

(A) determine whether the actions of Soviet forces against the people of Afghanistan constitute the international crime of Genocide as defined in Article II of the International Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, signed on behalf of the United States on December 11, 1948, and, if the Secretary determines that Soviet actions may constitute the crime of genocide, he shall report his findings to the President and the Congress, along with recommended actions; and

(B) review United States policy with respect to the continued recognition of the Soviet puppet government in Kabul to determine whether such recognition is in the interest of the United States.

SEC. 3. ACHILLE LAURO HIJACKING. (a) The Senate finds that,
