  • Description

    Israel would be prepared for a fight at the border with Syrian "terrorist groups", Prime Minister Golda Meir said at the weekend.

    She and her deputy, Yigal Allon, and Foreign Minister Abba Eban, faced a panel of newsmen on the "Meet the Press" programme aired Sunday (6 May) by the National Broadcasting Company.

    Mrs. Meir was commenting on the Israeli action if Palestinian terrorist groups threatened Lebanon, and, through Lebanon, Israel. A transcript of her remarks follows, including the questions's interjection about Israeli commandos' raid on Palestinian Beirut headquarters in April:
    Deputy Prime Minister Allon said that while Israel maintained its historic right to settle anywhere in the land of Israel, it might be willing to concede some of the land captured in the June, 1967 war with the Arab in order to get peace. A transcript of his statement follows:
    Asked if there were any peace prospects in Israel's next quarter century (it has just marked its 25th anniversary as a nation), Foreign Minister Eban said the Arabs had few options -- either to maintain the present situation or to negotiate. A transcript of his answer, and the interjection of his questioner, follows:
