    BRANDT: "From the talks Bruno Kreisky and I had in Vienna in July this year we hadn't asked for anything more than that the bureau should take note of this. But then our Israeli friends to take that point are more susceptible, more political than others is only too understandable, I think. And as a whole my report ...... ended by this statement that I thought it would also further on be useful to have contacts which could contribute to bringing organised peace considerable forward in the region of the Middle East.
