    TRANSCRIPT: REPORTER (SEQ. 2): "Mr Eban, after your talks with Secretary of State Rogers in the United States, what do you think are Israel's chances for receiving the phantom planes they have requested?"



    EBAN: "Until we actually receive them, or receive an announcement or a notification of their availability we cannot regard this struggle as ended, however there have been some favourable developments. One of them is the statement of the Secretary of State Mr. Rogers, after my talks with him, in which he said that the matter would be re-opened in the light of the Soviet announcement on the reinforcement of the military might of Egypt....the second is the multiple expressions of public opinion and parliamentary opinion in the United States....of which the most recent was that of the Senate. That isn't the last, or the only one, but I don't know of any other international cause concerning international affairs in which 78 members of the Senate would express themselves, in such unity. These are favourable developments in a struggle which has not yet ended because we've not yet received actual firm and binding notification."
