    ARAFAT: "I am expecting nothing, you see, I think they are wasting time at the moment, and may be they want to save time too. Wasting time from one side, and saving time from another angle. So I am expecting nothing, but I hope that they will understand, sooner or later, those who are planning for Camp David, that nothing can be achieved, no peace, no settlement, no stability, here in this area, by over-trampling the Palestinian rights, and by over-trampling the Palestinian people and the PLO and the Palestinian volunteers and Freedom fighters. Nothing can be achieved in this area. We are the odd numbers, we are the core of the whole problem in this area. So I hope that they will understand this reality."



    "Will you take any new initiative after the Camp David mooting"?



    ARAFAT: "Yes, by increasing our activities by all means."
