    TRANSCRIPT: MRS. MEIR (SEQ. 3)



    We are not prepared to write off anything that has been tried and I am not prepared to say that the effort and the special Suez Canal arrangement has failed and I don't want to say that anything has failed. And there may be new things that should be tried and I think that maybe some of the things that have already been tried and have not been successful should be tried again. Certainly any effort, no matter how many times one tries it is better than the possibility of shooting in the war and so on".

    Background: The Prime Minister of Israel, Golda Meir said on arrival in the United States on Tuesday (30 November) that all efforts should be made to avoid war in the Middle East -- ideas for peace that had failed, she said, should be tried again.

    Mrs. Meir's visit to Washington comes less than two weeks after President Sadat of Egypt announced that all his diplomatic efforts to find a peaceful solution to the confrontation with Israel had failed, and war was the only answer .. and two days before the United Nations' full-scale debate on the Middle East is due to begin.
