    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 3: QUESTION: "MR.KENNEDY. IT WOULD SEEM FROM SOME OF SIR ALEC DOUGLAS-HOME'S REMARKS THAT HE DISTRUSTS DR. SUKARNO A GOOD DEAL MORE THAT THE AMERICANS. DID YOU FIND THIS SO IN YOUR DISCUSSION?"



    ANSWER: "WELL, I DON'T THINK ITS REALLY A QUESTION OF TRUSTING ANYBODY. NOBODY'S GOING TO BE PARTICULAR IN THIS IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES. THERE'S GOING TO BE A CEASEFIRE AND A CONFERENCE WILL BE HELD WITHIN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS. EITHER THE CONFERENCE IS GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL OR IT'S NOT SUCCESSFUL. IF IT'S NOT SUCCESSFUL EVERYBODY CAN GO BACK TO THE JUNGLE AND START SHOOTING AT EACH OTHER AGAIN. IT ONLY MEANS THEY'VE LOST A COUPLE OF WEEKS KILLING PEOPLE."



    QUESTION: "AMERICAN AID TO DR. SUKARNO....WAS THIS BROUGHT UP BY THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT?"



    ANSWER: "WE ACCEPT THE STATUS OF AMERICAN AID TO PRESIDENT SUKARNO AND INDONESIA ... I MEAN WE ACCEPT THE STATUS OF THAT...."



    QUESTION: "IS IT YOUR VIEW THAT HIS IS HELPING DR. SUKARNO AND HIS CONFRONTATION POLICY?"



    ANSWER: "WELL, I BELIEVE THE AID IS GENERALLY HELPING THE ECONOMY OF INDONESIA. WHICH IS OUR INTENTION."

    Background: MR. ROBERT KENNEDY, THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY-GENERAL, SAID IN LONDON TODAY, (MONDAY), THAT IF THE PROPOSED TALKS ON THE INDONESIAN-MALAYSIAN DISPUTE FAILED HE WOULD BE PESSIMISTIC ABOUT A PEACEFUL SOLUTION "AT LEAST IN THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE".

    DURING THE WEEKEND, MR. KENNEDY HELD TALKS WITH THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER SIR ALEC DOUGLAS-HOME ON MALAYSIA AND OTHER ISSUES, INCLUDING CYPRUS. SPEAKING ABOUT THE PROPOSED SUMMIT MEETING BETWEEN INDONESIA, MALAYSIA AND THE PHILIPPINES HE SAID: "I THINK IT IS WORTHWHILE MAKING THIS EFFORT. IF IT DOESN'T WORK, THEN ENGLISHMEN, GURKHAS AND MALAYSIANS CAN GO BACK INTO THE JUNGLE AND GET SHOT AGAIN. I DON'T THINK THAT IS VERY PLEASANT EITHER."
    LATER, HE REPLIED TO REPORTERS QUESTIONS ABOUT AMERICA'S ATTITUDE TO THE INDONESIAN LEADER AND INDONESIA.
