  • Description


    U THANT RETURNING TO JOHN F. KENNEDY AIRPORT, NEW YORK, BEING MET BY SECURITY COUNCIL DELEGATES, AND MAKING (SOF) A STATEMENT TO NEWSMEN.



    TRANSCRIPT: U THANT: (PARAPHRASED): "I WOULD, HOWEVER, LIKE TO SAY THAT EVEN IF AN END TO THE FIGHTING IS NOT ACHIEVED, THERE IS NO REASON FOR ANY RELAXATION OF ALL EFFORTS TO ACHIEVE IT. FURTHERMORE, MY TALKS (IN INDIA AND PAKISTAN) HAVE CONVINCED ME OF THE BASIC DESIRE OF BOTH SIDES TO STOP FIGHTING AND FIND A PEACEFUL SOLUTION TO THEIR DIFFICULTIES. TO THAT EXTENT, I HAVE MADE ARRANGEMENTS TO CONTINUE TO WORK TOWARDS A FULL COMPLIANCE WITH THE SECURITY COUNCIL'S CALL FOR A CEASEFIRE. THE TALKS WERE VERY FRANK AND USEFUL AND WILL BE MOST VALUABLE IN THIS CONTINUING EFFORT TO FIND A CEASEFIRE. THE VERY FACT THAT THE COUNCIL HAS BEEN ABLE TO ADOPT TWO UNANIMOUS RESOLUTIONS ON SEPTEMBER 4 AND 6 LEADS ME TO THE CONVICTION THAT IT CAN THIS TIME CONTRIBUTE EFFECTIVELY TOWARDS A PEACEFUL SOLUTION OF THE PROBLEM."
