    LAWYERS AT THE CONFERENCE, AND PRESIDENT JOHNSON SPEAKING ON THE KASHMIR ISSUE AND THE ARMS RACE (S.O.F)



    TRANSCRIPT: "CENTRAL TO THE HOPE OF WORLD PEACE THROUGH LAW IS THE UNITED NATIONS. SINCE ITS BEGINNING, DOZENS OF DISPUTES - MANY LACED WITH VIOLENCE - HAVE COME BEFORE THE WORLD ASSEMBLY. SOME HAVE REMAINED UNRESOLVED, MANY HAVE FOUND A SETTLEMENT SUFFICIENT TO ALLOW MANKIND TO MOVE FORWARD IN PEACE, AND IN SOME PLACES THE UNITED NATIONS WAS ABLE TO PREVENT CONFLICT AND BLOODSHED. I HOPE WE CAN STRENGTHEN THE UNITED NATIONS, NOT SIMPLY AS A FORUM FOR A DEBATE, BUT AS AN ARENA FOR THE SOLUTION OF DISPUTES. (APPLAUSE). AND MY COUNTRY WILL FULLY SUPPORT THE EFFORTS OF THE SECRETARY-GENERAL TO BRING PEACE BETWEEN THE GREAT NATIONS OF INDIA AND PAKISTAN. (APPLAUSE). AND PERHAPS IN THE UNITED NATIONS -- AND WITH THE PATIENT EFFORT OF INDIVIDUAL COUNTRIES -- WE CAN ALSO HALT THE TERRIBLE ARMS RACE WHICH THREATENS TO ENGULF THE EARTH. PERHAPS WE CAN SUCCEED THROUGH AN EFFECTIVE TREATY PREVENTING THE SPREAD OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS -- THROUGH EXTENDING THE TEST BAN TREATY-- BY OBTAINING AN AGREEMENT HALTING PRODUCTION OF FISSIONABLE MATERIAL USED IN NUCLEAR WEAPONS."
