    TRANSCRIPT (SEQ 2): EBAN: "OH NO, I DON'T SAY THAT THEY ARE NOT A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR; I SAY THAT A DISCUSSION BETWEEN US AND THE PALESTINE ARABS DOES NOT EXHAUST THE PROBLEM. THERE IS A STATE OF WAR BETWEEN ISRAEL AND FOUR NEIGHBOURING ARAB STATES, AND THE PEACE TO WHICH WE ASPIRE IS A PEACE BASED ON TREATIES BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE SOVEREIGN STATES OF THE ARAB WORLD. AND NOW WE THINK THAT THE ARABS WHO ARE LIVING WITH US NOW, AND WITH WHOM OUR HUMAN CONTACTS ARE INCREASING, COULD HAVE A PART TO PLAY IN DEVELOPING IDEAS ABOUT PEACE IN THE ARAB WORLD AND SERVING AS A BRIDGE BETWEEN US AND THE ARAB GOVERNMENTS. I'VE ALSO SAID, AND I REPEAT, THAT THE PROBLEM OF THE STATUS AND IDENTITY OF THE PALESTINE ARABS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE JORDAN WOULD BE AUTOMATICALLY SETTLED BY PEACE, BECAUSE UNDER PEACE THERE WOULD BE A RECOGNISED BOUNDARY AND THESE ARABS WOULD BE CITIZENS OF A SOVEREIGN STATE ON ONE OR THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT BOUNDARY, IRRESPECTIVE OF WHERE THAT BOUNDARY IS".



    (SEQ 4): EBAN: "SYRIA REFUSES TO NEGOTIATE PEACE WITH US ON THIS MATTER BECAUSE SYRIA HAS AN UNCONDITIONAL DUTY TO LIBERATE TWO PEOPLE FOR WHOSE CONTINUED IMPRISONMENT THERE IS NOT THE SLIGHTEST JUSTIFICATION OF ANY KIND OR SORT. IT IS SIMPLY AN OUTRAGE UPON THEIR INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY, INVOLVING ALSO COLLUSION, WITH AIR PIRACY, LEADING TO AN INTERNATIONAL MOVEMENT IN FAVOUR OF STRENGTHENING THE INTERNATIONAL LAW



    EBAN: "......AGAINST THE PIRACY IN THE AIR. NOW THERE IS -- THERE ARE TALKS WITH SYRIA, BY THE GOVERNMENT RESPONSIBLE, NAMELY THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, UNDER WHOSE FLAG THESE TWO PEOPLE WERE FLYING ON THEIR INNOCENT VOYAGE, AND THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT ACCEPTS THE CONCEPT OF A SPECIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND IS MAKING EFFORTS, AS ALSO ARE OTHERS."
