    MR. GOLDBERG SPEAKING AT UNITED NATIONS. HERE IS AN EXTRACT FROM MR. GOLDBERG'S SPEECH.......



    TRANSCRIPT: GOLDBERG: " IN AS MUCH AS HE LOCATION OF THE PUEBLO IS OF COURSE A MATTER OF VITAL IMPORTANCE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO THE COUNCIL TO KNOW THAT THE INFORMATION AVAILABLE TO THE UNITED STATES AS REPORTERS BY OUR VESSEL TO OUR AUTHORITIES, AND THE NORTH KOREAN AUTHORITIES, AS REPORTED BY ITS VESSEL, AND AS TRANSMITTED BY ITS WON SHIP, WAS VIRTUALLY IDENTICAL. THERE'S ONLY A SMALL MARGIN OF DIFFERENCE AND, INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, THE NORTH KOREAN SHIP REPORTED THE PUEBLO TO BE ABOUT A MILE FURTHER AWAY FROM THE SHORELINE THAN THE UNITED STATES FIX OF ITS POSITION. THAT DISTANCE IS ABOUT (BETWEEN THE BLUE AND THE RED) IS ABOUT A MILE. SO YOU SEE ACCORDING TO THE NORTH KOREAN REPORT, BROADCAST, MONITORED, IT WAS REPORTING WHAT I HAVE STATED TO THIS COUNCIL."
