    PRESIDENT JOHNSON SPEAKING (SOF)



    TRANSCRIPT



    JOHNSON: "THERE ARE SOME WHO HAVE URGED AS A SINGLE SIMPLE SOLUTION AN IMMEDIATE RETURN TO THE SITUATION AS IT WAS ON JUNE THE FOURTH. AS OUR DISTINGUISHED AND ABLE AMBASSADOR, MR. GOLDBERG HAS ALREADY SAID THIS IS NOT A PRESCRIPTION FOR PEACE, BUT FOR RENEWED HOSTILITIES. SO CERTAINLY TROOPS MUST BE WITHDRAWN. BUT THERE MUST ALSO BE RECOGNISED RIGHTS OF NATIONAL LIFE; PROGRESS IN SOLVING THE REFUGEE PROBLEM; FREEDOM OF INNOCENT MARITIME PASSAGE; LIMITATION OF THE ARMS RACE; AND RESPECT FOR POLITICAL INDEPENDENCE AND TERRITORIAL INTEGRITY. BUT WHO WILL MAKE THIS PEACE WHERE ALL OTHERS HAVE FAILED FOR TWENTY YEARS OR MORE? CLEARLY, THE PART IS TO THE CONFLICT MUST BE THE PARTIES TO THE PEACE. SOONER OR LATER IT IS THEY, IT IS THEY WHO MUST MAKE A SETTLEMENT IN THE AREA. IT IS HARD TO SEE HOW IT IT POSSIBLE FOR NATIONS TO LIVE TOGETHER IN PEACE IF THEY CANNOT LEARN TO REASON TOGETHER."

    Background: PRESIDENT JOHNSON TODAY (MONDAY) CALLED ON ARABS AND ISRAELI TO REASON TOGETHER AND BRING A DURABLE PEACE OUT OF THE RECENT WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

    PRESIDENT JOHNSON MADE HIS REMARKS TO A FOREIGN POLICY CONFERENCE IN WASHINGTON. HE SAID THAT ISRAEL HAD A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT TO ITS OWN EXISTENCE. BUT ADDED THAT ISRAEL SHOULD NOT PERMIT ITS MILITARY SUCCESSES TO BLIND IT TO THE FACT THAT ITS ARAB NEIGHBOURS HAD RIGHTS AND INTERESTS OF THEIR OWN.

    THE PRESIDENT SUGGESTED THAT ONE WAY TO EASE THE TENSION IN THE MIDDLE EAST WOULD BE TO END THE ARMS RACE IN THE REGION.

    PRESIDENT JOHNSON SUPPORTED ARAB DEMANDS FOR A SOLUTION OF THE PALESTINE REFUGEE PROBLEM. AND ALSO SUPPORTERS ISRAELIS REQUEST FOR FREE PASSAGE THROUGH INTERNATIONAL WATERWAYS.
