    EGYPTIAN DELEGATE, MAHMOUND OSMAN: "We are not debating our share in harder currency -- that of our blood, our youth, our vital resources and above all our precious time. There are certainly other set of values which should be taken into consideration."



    CHAIRMAN: "Excuse me. Could I appeal to the distinguished representative of Israel if possible he could confine himself specifically to replying to the statements that were made in the Committee this morning. Thank you. You may continue."



    ISRAELI DELEGATE, MR. HARAN: "Thank you, Mr. Chairman. We have had some progress. Maybe some people do not like progress of this kind, but we have agreed with Egypt -- an agreement for the first tir???in a long time, signed by delegates both of my country and of Egypt which says and I quote: 'Both sides agree that discussions between them will begin immediately to settle the question of the return to the 22nd of October position in the framework of the agreement of the disengagement and separation of forces under the auspices of the United Nations.'"

    Background: Bitter disputes broke out at a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly's Fifth Committee on Monday (Nov. 19) over who should pay for the U.N. Emergency Peace-keeping force in the Middle East. The Emergency Force is expected to cost about GBP 12 million pounds sterling (30 million U.S. dollars) ir???ts first six months. The debate developed into a wrangle between the Soviet Union and the Arab countries on the one side and Israel on the other.

    The Soviet delegate supported the Egyptian position that no Arab country should contribute because they had already paid the price in Arab blood and it was Israel who was the aggressor who should pay.

    The Israeli delegate Mr. Hadran immediately denied that Israel was the aggressor. But he was interrupted during his speech by Arab speakers and the chairman -- and the session was abruptly adjourned.
