    Transcript Seq. 3: Kamal Nasser: "The national congress has achieved its objectives and decided on the unity of all its forces, putting aside all differences which some have tried to exploit in order to upset and divide the congress. We assure you that we will continue with our struggle to liberate our land and we refuse to be a participant in any political solution or to an extension of the various Arab contradictions. We are in a new period of struggle. We understand the contradictions of this period and our style of work has accordingly changed. We shall avoid both unorganised retreats and self-defeating adventurism. The unity of our people in a Jordanian Palestinian Front is our answer to that conspiracy which seeks to impose a Palestinian statelet ..a miniature Palestine upon our people. We have decided to improve relations with the Arab liberation movement and with all forces struggling in the world against imperialism and Zionism."
