    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 3 & 5): ROGERS:- "THE IMPRESSION SOMEHOW HAD BEEN CREATED THAT WE WERE SUGGESTING THAT ISRAEL WITHDRAW FROM CERTAIN TERRITORY, BEFORE A FINAL AGREEMENT WAS CONCLUDED. OF COURSE THAT HAS NEVER BEEN OUR POSITION. WE HAVE NEVER SUGGESTED ANY SUCH COURSE OF ACTION, AND I MADE THAT CLEAR. WE HAVE ALWAYS SAID THAT ANY AGREEMENT HAD TO BE A COMPLETE AGREEMENT INVOLVING ALL OF THE PROBLEMS IN THE AREA. AND IT HAD TO BE SIGNED AND AGREED TO BY ALL OF THE NATIONS CONCERNED - ISRAEL, JORDAN AND EGYPT. AND THAT NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN UNTIL THE AGREEMENT WAS COMPLETED."

    Background: SECRETARY OF STATE WILLIAM ROGERS SPOKE BRIEFLY WITH REPORTERS AT THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT'S MID-DAY MEETING. HE SAID IT WAS NOT THE POSITION OF THE UNITED STATES TO HAVE ISRAEL WITHDRAW FROM CERTAIN TERRITORY BEFORE A FINAL AGREEMENT HAD BEEN SIGNED AND AGREED TO BY ALL THE NATIONS INVOLVED.

    ANOTHER TOPIC COVERED IN THE BRIEF NEWS CONFERENCE, BUT NOT INCLUDED IN THIS STORY, WAS NEGOTIATIONS FOR PEACE IN VIETNAM AT THE PARIS TALKS. HE SAID THE UNITED STATES INTENDED TO CONTINUE THE NEGOTIATIONS, BUT HE HELD OPEN THE POSSIBILITY THE UNITED STATES AND SOUTH VIETNAM MIGHT BOYCOTT THE NEXT ROUND OF TALKS IN PARIS. ROGERS DECLINED TO MAKE ANY NEW ASSESSMENT OF THE RESULTS OF THE U.S. SUPPORTED SOUTH VIETNAMESE OPERATION IN LAOS.
