    TRANSCRIPT:



    RIAD: "I CONSIDER IT A PARTICULAR PRIVILEGE OF HOLDING TALKS WITH DR. LUNS, SUCH A PERSONALITY WHOSE CONSISTENT ENDEAVOURS FOR THE CAUSE OF PEACE ARE WELL-KNOWN IN THE INTERNATIONAL SPHERE, AND ESPECIALLY IN THE UNITED NATIONS. DR. LUNS' ACTIVITIES DO NOT LIMIT THEMSELVES TO THE FIELD OF INTERNATIONAL POLITICS -- IN FACT THEY GO BEYOND THAT, IN HIS PERSISTENT EFFORTS FOR ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL CO-OPERATION BETWEEN NATIONS."



    LUNS: "THE EGYPTIAN MINISTER HAS NOT COME TO THE HAGUE IN ORDER TO MAKE AN AGREEMENT ABOUT THE MIDDLE EAST. BUT AS IT IS A PROBLEM WHICH IS SO IMPORTANT NOT ONLY FOR THE COUNTRIES DIRECTLY CONCERNED BUT FOR THE WHOLE OF EUROPE AND I DARE SAY FOR THE WHOLE OF THE WORLD, IT WAS EXTREMELY INTERESTING FOR ME TO HEAR FROM MY EGYPTIAN COLLEAGUE HIS VERY LATEST IMPRESSIONS AFTER THE EVENTS OF THE LAST MONTHS AND SINCE WE MET IN THE UNITED NATIONS LAST YEAR."



    RIAD: OF COURSE THEY (THE FOUR POWERS) ARE TRYING TO FIND MEANS AND WAYS HOW TO IMPLEMENT THE SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION. THESE TALKS ARE GOING ON TILL NOW -- THEY ARE NOT BROKEN. WE HOPE THAT THESE TALKS WILL CONTINUE AMONG THE FOUR POWERS BECAUSE THIS IS THE ONLY WAY HOW TO ACHIEVE PEACE IN THE AREA. WE HOPE THAT THESE TALKS WILL CONTINUE, AND WE HOPE THAT THE FOUR POWERS WILL REACH AN AGREEMENT SO THAT PEACE, AS I SAID, CAN BE ACHIEVED."
