    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: HOME: "The confrontation which today carries the greatest risk of war is that between Israel and the Arab states. It is one which could draw into the Lines of antagonism the most powerful countries in the world...."



    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 4: HOME: "This dispute is concerned with the most emotional of all issues, there security, and therefore the life, of those who confront each ether. The Arabs are convinced that the Israelis want to encircle and destroy her. In such circumstances what can others, or the United Nations, do I take it we are resolved, in so far as we can influence events, that on this issue there should bed no war. We have in fact taken one positive step to avert it. Few can doubt that Resolution 242, although it is not perfect, contains the essential ingredients of settlement. I consider that it is the only resolution which could command substantial support."



    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 6: HOME: "In the Far East we have seen that China has for too long isolated herself from the world community. When she plays her full part here in New York, a mighty voice will be added to our counsels; and a major step will have been taken towards the true representation here of the balance of world power and world opinion, form which consensus can be hammered out, however painful at times the process may be."
