SEQ. 4: KISSINGER: "As the President pointed out we are proud that America was the one country in the world sufficiently trusted by both sides to play this role and sufficiently trusted by both sides to be asked ??? help monitor some of the technical aspects of the agreement on a very small but central part of the area of disengagement."

Background: Secretary of State Henry Kissinger arrived back in the United States on Wednesday (3 September) after his successful Middle East peace shuttle.
He was met at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington by President Gerald Ford and about a hundred officials and spectators. Mr. Ford, clearly delighted by the outcome of the talks between Israel and Egypt said, "America can be very proud of Dr. Kissinger's role as peacemaker"
The two men then flew by helicopter to the White House to discuss the Mideast interim agreement. They met congressional loaders on Thursday (4 September) to brief them on the terms of the agreement, which calls for the stationing of U.S. personnel at early warning stations in Sinai ... a clause which needs congressional approval.
This film includes President Ford and Dr. Kissinger speaking on arrival at the airport. A transcript appears below.
