    TRANSCRIPT (SEQ 5): REPORTER: "IS IT YOUR OPINION THAT AN INTERNATIONAL ARMS EMBARGO CAN BE ACHIEVED?"



    MRS MEIR: "YOU KNOW, THE TALK OF AN EMBARGO, A TOTAL EMBARGO BY ALL PARTIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST, THIS ON THE PART OF SOME MAY BE WISHFUL THINKING, BUT IT IS NOT ANY MORE THAN THAT, IT'S SPECULATION. THE FACT IS THAT THE SOVIET UNION IS CONSTANTLY SENDING ARMS TO ALL THE ARAB COUNTRIES THAT WISH TO BUY ARMS FROM IT. THERE IS NO LIMIT AT ALL AS TO QUANTITY AND IT'S BEING STEPPED UP ALL THE TIME AS FAR AS QUALITY'S CONCERNED. ISRAEL HAS PROBLEMS IN GETTING THE ARMS THAT IT NEEDS, BUT OUR NEIGHBOURS, THOSE THAT HAVE A DECLARED POLICY TO DESTROY ISRAEL TO MY SORROW HAVE NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER."
