    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 3: YAMANI: "There's not enough to meet the world wide demand, except for 25 or 30 years unless a very sincere efforts are taken to conserve and avoid the western use of this valuable material and a sincere effort to discover more oil and establish addition sources of energy. In Saudi Arabia we welcome a move of this kind."



    Sheikh Yamani was also asked about a possible threat of American intervention to keep oil supplies flowing.



    SEQ. 7: YAMANI: "In Saudi Arabia we don't take that threat seriously. We know that it is a very risky matter and any national Government will never take an irrational action at this time because it means a disaster for the whole world and an end to western civilisation."
