    TRANSCRIPT (SEQ 4) YASSAR ARAFAT: "I said it once -- we have nothing to do with Jarring, because our revolution started before the June War. It started at the beginning of '65, and our aim is to liberate our country".



    INTERVIEWER: "But you have always before said that if the Arab governments make a peaceful settlement with Israel that doesn't give the Palestinians what they want, that you would go on fighting after a peace agreement. Is that still your position?"



    YASSAR ARAFAT: "We'll continue our fighting till liberating our own land."



    INTERVIEWER: "Is that very realistic? I mean, you have taken a military hiding, as we would say, in the last few months. Surely you're not in a position to do that?"



    YASSAR ARAFAT: "You see, one thousand miles start is one step. We know that we will fight for a long time, and we believe in the popular war, for a long breadth war."



    INTERVIEWER: "So if peace talks were to start under Doctor Jarring -- if representatives from Jordan and Egypt and Israel got together, if they asked you to come to the conference table, you would not go?"



    YASSAR ARAFAT: "Definitely not, because I have nothing to do with these talks".
