    TRANSCRIPT:



    Reporter: What is you overall impression of this conference ?



    Rashid: This conference has reaffirmed to every-body, the willingness the determination and the persistence of the Palestinians, to fight and maintain their liberation war until victory; and to reject all settlements that are designed to liquidate our revolution.



    Reporter: Now in the light of all this, the liberation of Palestine is going to mean, from your point of view, war?



    Rashid: Continued war of liberation until victory.



    Reporter: Whatever rulers do?



    Rashid: Whatever they do, absolutely.



    Reporter: Thank you very much Dr Rashid.

    Background: The Palestine National Council, which groups all the Arab guerilla movements last night (August 28) rejected American proposals for a Middle East settlement.

    The Council which includes 115 representatives of Palestinian Commando Organisations has also found support in members of the American Black Panther Movement who were present at the meeting.

    The rejection of the American proposals was among recommendations approved by the Council at an open meeting concluding the emergency session which began yesterday ( August 27).

    Yasser Arafat, leader of the Fateh guerilla movement, who has been attending the emergency sessions, refused to speak to the press but an official Fateh spokesman Dr. Rashid was prepared to speak.
