    TRANSCRIPT: Q. DO YOU HAVE ANY HOPES OF TALKING TO OR SEEING PRESIDENT TSHOMBE?



    A. WHERE IS HE? (LAUGHTER) HE IS IN KALWEZI.



    Q. WOULD YOU TALK TO HIM IF HE WANTED TO TALK TO YOU?



    A. WHAT ABOUT? (I SHOULD THINK THE CONGO SIR.) ANY SUBJECT, NO I'VE GOT NO REASON TO, I HAVE NOTHING TO TALK TO PRESIDENT TSHOMBE ABOUT. I'M HERE TO TALK TO OUR PEOPLE ON THIS VERY SHORT VISIT AND FIND OUT HOW THEIR STATE AFFAIR IS, AND GET ON BACK TO MY MAIN JOB IN NEW YORK. I JUST CAME DOWN HERE AS A MATTER OF FACT ON A SORT OF A LAST MINUTE LAP.



    Q. DO YOU BELIEVE MR. BUNCHE, DR. BUNCHE, THAT THE TIME FOR NEGOTIATIONS WITH MR. TSHOMBE IS OVER?



    A. I THINK YOU PERHAPS MAY HAVE SEEN THE SECRETARY- GENERAL'S STATEMENT I THINK HE MADE IT VERY CLEAR IN THAT STATEMENT THAT TIME FOR NEGOTIATIONS HAD BEEN PRESSED FOR QUITE SOMETIME.
