    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 4: EBAN: "ONE OF THE FACTORS WILL BE THE INTERNATIONAL REACTION. ESPECIALLY OF COURSE THE U.S. REACTION. I SAY ESPECIALLY BECAUSE OF THE FACTS OF THE WORLD POWER BALANCE. BUT I SPEAK ON THE INTERNATIONAL REACTION AS ONE OF THE FACTORS WHICH WILL DETERMINE THE NEXT STAGE IN THIS EVOLUTION. LET ME PUT IT MORE CONCRETELY. WILL THE INTERNATIONAL REACTION BE APATHETIC, INDULGENT, VAGUE ?.-OR WILL IT BE VIGOROUS, STRINGENT AND CONCRETE? IF IT IS THE FORMER, IF THE INTERNATIONAL REACTION IS APATHETIC, INDULGENT, VAGUE, THEN THE CONSEQUENCE MUST BE A FURTHER ESCALATION IN SOVIET INVOLVEMENT WITH MANIFEST DANGERS TO PEACE AND SECURITY. IF HOWEVER THE INTERNATIONAL REACTION IS VIGOROUS, STRINGENT, AND CONCRETE, THEN THE GROWTH OF TENSION CAN STILL BE ARRESTED, THE CONFLICT RESTORED TO ITS LOCAL FRAMEWORK, AND EFFORTS TO BEING THE CONFLICT TO AN END BY A NEGOTIATED PEACE WILL STILL SURVIVE."

    Background: ADDRESSING A JOURNALISTS' ASSOCIATION FUNCTION IN JERUSALEM ON THURSDAY (30TH MAY), ABBA EBAN ACCUSED RUSSIA OF PROVOKING THE WAR IN THE MIDDLE-EAST AFTER ISRAEL HAD REPORTED THWARTING ANOTHER EGYPTIAN COMMANDO RAID ACROSS THE SUEZ CANAL. HE CALLED IN THE UNITED STATES TO ENSURE ISRAEL'S SECURITY IN THE FACE OF THIS SOVIET INVOLVEMENT.

    OBSERVERS IN JERUSALEM SEE MR EBAN'S STATEMENT AS AN APPEAL FOR MORE AMERICAN WAR PLANES, FOLLOWING HIS GOVERNMENT'S ANNOUNCEMENT THAT SOVIET PILOTS WERE FLYING OPERATIONAL MISSIONS OVER EGYPT.
