    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: MRS MEIR: "I announce on behalf of the government of Israel, that we are prepared to continue the present ceasefire without a time limit. In an atmosphere in which a callous breach of faith between nations is sounded as virtue, and aggression against a peaceful neighbour is acclaimed as a sacred cause (indistinct) peace can prosper. Yet despite what has happened we in Israel still trust that for the sake of all our peoples the Arab leadership will join with us some day in guiding out area from present turmoil to the horizons of peace. And here's a call from this rostrum once again, in the presence of the representatives of the entire community of nations, upon the Arab leaders of the Middle-East, and especially now upon the new leadership of Egypt, to recognise once and for all, that the future of the Middle East lies in peace....and this must be achieved by Israelis and Arabs themselves."
