    SPOKESMAN: "When we received the invitation to come from the Secretary-General (indistinct) he extended an invitation and we agreed. But when we agreed, he was not available immediately because of the appointment that he had. So we had to postpone our trip, or put it to a date that was mutually convenient. So, we have come in the area after you have had other visitors, and I would not like our visit to imply that we are following another group."

    Background: A dispute has erupted among black leaders in the United States over Black-Jewish relations. Black American Civil Rights leader Bayard Rustin, who has compared the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) with the Ku Klux Klan, arrived in Israeli on Sunday (14 October), less than three weeks after other black activists led by the Reverend Jesse Jackson visited the Middle East and met with P.L.O. chief Yasser Arafat. There has been criticism by some black American leaders of the meeting with the P.L.O. But in Washington, former United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young said he disagreed with the criticism.

    SYNOPSIS: The latest delegation to visit the area met with Arab trade union leaders from East Jerusalem and the West Bank on Tuesday (16 October). They made it clear they were not connected with Mr Jackson's group.
