    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 10: MR. EBAN: "I MUST ALSO REFER TO THE BACKGROUND AGAINST WHICH THEY TAKE PLACE BUT IN A FEW HOURS RADIO STATIONS IN BEIRUT AND IN AMMAN HAD QUOTED VARIOUS ORGANISATIONS CALLING THEMSELVES PALESTINE LIBERATION ORGANISATIONS AND OTHERS AS CLAIMING SO-CALLED CREDIT ... STRANGE WORD CREDIT ... FOR THE MURDER OF SOME 47 INNOCENT CIVILIAN TRAVELLERS. NOW IN ISRAEL'S VIEW IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SEPARATE THESE OUTRAGES FROM THE RESPONSIBILITY OF CERTAIN GOVERNMENTS, BECAUSE WHAT IS THIS PALESTINE LIBERATION ORGANISATION?. WHAT ARE THESE OTHER ORGANISATIONS? WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?. THEY DON'T COME FROM THE MOON ... THEY'RE NOT ORGANISED OUTSIDE THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY ... THEY ARE SUPPORTED AND ESTABLISHED AND FOUNDED AND PRAISED AND ENCOURAGED BY THE GOVERNMENTS. SOMETIMES THEY HAVE MEETINGS CONFERENCES IN AREB CAPITALS AND THE HEADS OF ARAB GOVERNMENTS GREET THEM, AND AFFIRM SOLIDARITY WITH THEM, AND VOTE FUNDS FOR THEM. THEREFORE THE GOVERNMENTS WHICH HAVE ESTABLISHED THESE ORGANISATIONS WHICH SHELTER THEM ON THEIR TERRITORY, WHICH OFFER THEM RADIO FACILITIES, WHICH GIVE THEM ARMS, WHICH GIVE THEM MONEY, ... THESE GOVERNMENTS MUST BE REGARDED AS ASSOCIATED WITH THESE HORRIFYING ACTS, AND INTERNATIONAL OPINION. I THINK, SHOULD ALSO BEAR THIS IN MIND".

EBAN IS STAYING. A CROWD OF 400 YOUNG PEOPLE DEMONSTRATED PEACEFULLY EARLIER TODAY (TUESDAY) BEFORE THE PRESS CONFERENCE, BUT SO FAR THERE HAVE BEEN NO SERIOUS INCIDENTS REPORTED. ONLY SPECIALLY ACCREDITED AND SCREENED CORRESPONDENTS WERE ALLOWED INTO THE CONFERENCE HALL.

    OPENING HIS PRESS CONFERENCE, MR. EBAN FELT IT NECESSARY TO MAKE EXPLANATORY COMMENT ON THE TWO BOMB INCIDENTS OF THE PAST WEEK WHICH INVOLVED TWO PASSENGER AIRCRAFT, AND GREAT LOSS OF LIFE. HE SAID:
