  • Description


    MR EL KONY AND MR EBAN SPEAKING (SOF)



    TRANSCRIPT: EL KONY: "IT WAS PROVED BEYOND DOUBT THAT BOTH THE UNITED STATES AND THE UNITED KINGDOM HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THE AIR OPERATIONS OF THE ISRAELI AGGRESSION ASSISTING ISRAEL IN ITS ATTACKS AGAINST THE EGYPTIANS, THE JORDANIAN AND THE SYRIAN FRONTS. THEY, MOREOVER, PROVIDED AN AIR UMBRELLA OVER ISRAEL. IN SPITE OF ALL THE CATEGORIC DENIALS BY BOTH GOVERNMENTS THE FACT REMAINS THAT THERE WAS COLLUSION BETWEEN THE THREE GOVERNMENTS."



    EBAN: "MR PRESIDENT, NOTHING MORE ABSURD HAS EVER BEEN SAID AT AN INTERNATIONAL FORUM THAT THE UNITED KINGDOM AND THE UNITED STATES TOOK PART IN THE MILITARY OPERATIONS WITH WHICH ISRAEL WAS INVOLVED THIS WEEK. ISRAEL RECEIVED NOT ONE SINGLE OUNCE OF HELP FROM ANYBODY IN REPELLING THE AGGRESSIVE DESIGNS TO WHICH I REFERRED YESTERDAY."
