    DR. MAKSOUD: "The oil embargo is a temporary feature, admittedly it causes certain inconveniences; food embargoes mean the destitution of people, and to that extent, I think it would be over-reacting. The oil embargo has neither achieved its maximum effectiveness yet, but neither does it have to go any further, if there is sufficient credible diplomatic pressures exercised on israel to comply with the Security Council resolution which the United States subscribes to."

    Background: Dr. Clovis Maksoud, a special envoy of the League of Arab States, has arrived in Washington D.C. for a three-month tour of the United States. He is there to explain the Arab States' position on the current oil embargo and to discuss the situation in the Middle East.

    At a press conference in Washington on Wednesday (9 January), Dr. Maksoud relied to a statement made the day before by U.S. Vice-President Gerald Ford, who had suggested that if the oil embargo continued, the United States might cut back on food exports to Arab nations.
