    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: FULBRIGHT: "Well, I favour those proposals and I was pleased by the apparent response to the Arabs was satisfactory....well, nothing satisfactory, but was favourable to the negotiations. It now remains for Israel to make the decision to have a cease-fire and negotiations. I hope they come about. It's the only way that has any future to it. I don't think these matters can be solved by arms and by warfare."

    Background: After Thursday (July 23) night's speech by President Nasser in Cairo in which he announced conditional acceptance of the U.S.-proposed peace formula, government officials in Washington, D.C., have been expressing their views on hopes for a possible Mid-East settlement.

    Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright, the leader of the Senate Committee for Foreign Relations, said he was pleased by the apparent Arab response.

    In a brief statement on Friday, the Senator said it was now up to Israel to decide upon accepting the 90-day ceasefire, and he added that he did not think the Middle East situation could be solved by arms and warfare.
