    UNITED NATIONS; GOLDBERG SPEAKING AT NEWS CONFERENCE.



    TRANSCRIPT: REPORTER: WHY ARE YOU RESIGNING, SIR?



    GOLDBERG: BECAUSE, AS I SAID IN MY STATEMENT, WHICH IS AVAILABLE, I FEEL THAT I HAVE DONE WHAT I CAN DO AT THE U.N. IN THE CAUSE OF PEACE, AND I FEEL THAT I NOW CAN BEST CONTINUE TO SERVE THE CAUSE OF PEACE FREE FROM THE INTENSE PREOCCUPATION OF MY U.N. OFFICE. WHEN I FINALLY FINISH MY ROLE HERE AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE RESUMED SESSION I WILL THEN THINK ABOUT PRIVATE LIFE. FIRST THINK I WILL DO IS TAKE AN UNINTERRUPTED VACATION.
