    TRANSCRIPT: HAROLD WILSON: "WE DO FEEL THAT THE ISSUE SHOULD HAVE BEEN REFERRED TO THE U.N. EARLIER, AND WE ARE DEEPLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE WORSENING OF THE DISCUSSIONS IN THE LAST FEW DAYS. AND CERTAINLY IF THE TALKS ARE IN DIFFICULTIES BECAUSE OF PRESIDENT MAKARIOS' INSISTENCE ON ABROGATING THE 1960 TREATY, THIS DOES OF COURSE MAKE THINGS VERY MUCH MORE DIFFICULT THAN BEFORE. PERHAPS A BETTER LINE FROM THE BEGINNING MIGHT HAVE BEEN A COMMONWEALTH PEACE KEEPING FORCE LINKED WITH THE UNITED NATIONS."
