    HOTEL; BROWN SPEAKING. (SOF).



    TRANSCRIPT: BROWN: "HERE THERE IS A TREMENDOUS CLASH. THIS IS RUSSIA'S, NOT THE SOVIET'S, THIS IS RUSSIA'S BACKDOOR. AND LONG, LONG, LONG BEFORE THERE WAS A SOVIET THIS WAS WHERE THEY USED TO LOOK. THERE ARE GRAVE DANGERS HERE. A CONFLICT BETWEEN THE ISRAELIS AND THE ARABS, THE CONFLICT BETWEEN THE PEOPLE LIKE THE IRANIANS WHO ARE NOT ARABS YET ARE NOT ISRAELIS. THIS IS AN AREA WHERE WE HAVE, WE AMERICA AND BRITAIN, HAVE ENORMOUS ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL INTERESTS AND COULD WELL FIND OURSELVES, LONG AFTER VIETNAM HAS FINISHED, COULD WELL FIND OURSELVES WITH REAL PROBLEMS ON OUR HANDS."

    Background: THE FORMER BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY, MR. GEORGE BROWN, YESTERDAY WARNED THAT BRITAIN AND AMERICA COULD BE DEALING WITH MAJOR CONFLICTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST LONG AFTER THE VIETNAM CONFLICT HAS ENDED.

    MR. BROWN WAS GUEST OF HONOUR AT THE AMERICAN FOUNDATION ON AUTOMATION AND EMPLOYMENT.

    IN HIS REMARKS ABOUT VIETNAM, MR. BROWN SAID HE HAD SUPPORTED THE AMERICAN ROLE AS FOREIGN SECRETARY AND WOULD CONTINUE TO DO SO. HE DID NOT ARGUE, HE SAID, FOR ESCALATION, BUT CONSIDERED A SIMPLE UNITED STATES WITHDRAWAL WOULD BE AN ACT OF 'ISOLATIONISM'.
