  • Description

    The United States Secretary of State Henry Kissinger warned on Wednesday (21 November) that the United States would have to consider "counter-measures" if the Arab oil embargo continued indefinitely.

    He made it clear the United States would not be swayed from its policies by Arab action in cutting off oil to the United States because of its support for Israel.

    Addressing a news conference in Washington Dr. Kissinger did not set any deadline for the lifting of the embargo, and did not elaborate on how the United States would retaliate.

    He said countries vulnerable to the Arab action in using oil as a weapon should consider whether isolated actions would contribute to peace rather than working closely with the United States in efforts to achieve a settlement in the Middle East.

    This was an apparent reference to moves by japan and some European nations to emphasis the need for Israeli withdrawal from occupied Arab territories in the face of the oil embargo.
