ion and its drive toward a
"troika" Secretariat leader-
s h i p , she stated firmly:
"There should be one single
Secretary-General." The
"troika"' concept is not ac-
ceptable to Israel, she said,
since Israel "does not share
the view that the world is
divided into three blocs."
Each nation, she said, must
determine for itself "where it
stands in the affairs of the
world," and not be labeled by .
others as belonging to one
bloc or another.

She 'made it clear that Israel
would not tolerate the selection
of Mongi Slim, of Tunisia, the
anti-Israeli who is now presi-
dent of the General Assembly,
as the top executive officer of
the United Nations. Avoiding
mention of either Slim or his
country by name, she stated
that, in Israel's view, the Sec-
retary-General "should not be
a national of a country involved
in a serious conflict regarding
which the Secretary-General is
called 'upon to exercise respon-
•sibilities." Slim's country is a
member of the Arab League.
Mrs. Meir referred to the re-
cent border incidents in which
Israeli frontier patrols shot five
Arab youths who refused to
halt efforts to cross illegally
into the Gaza Strip as "another
regrettable result of the border
warfare which is part of the
belligerence practiced by the
Arab states against Israel." As
to the Arab population inside
Israel she said:
"We challenge any Arab
country to match the progress
in .universal, free, compulsory
education, health services, eco-
nomic welfare, rate of employ-
ment, standards of living, status
of women—which are enjoyed
by our Arab citizens who com-
prise about 12 percent of our
population."
Mrs. Meir concluded her ad-
dress with a renewed plea for
negotiation as the sole alterna-
tive to war, declaring:
"Fellow-delegates : If we are
convinced that the only result
of modern warfare will be the
annihilation of mankind, then
we must accept the only deci-
sive lesson that is left. This
great Organization must have
the strength to fulfill its su-
preme aim—the settlement of
conflicts between nations in
peace and for peace. For there
is one fear we all share—it is
the awesome fear for the fate
of the earth and of man
upon it."

Slim is said to have been of-
fered one of the undersecretary-
ships but, reportedly, he • has
refused_ to accept anything but
the top • job. Israel has object-
ed strenuously to Slim because
both he and his government are
out-and-out pro-Arab and anti-
Israel. The Arab and Soviet
blocs, unhappy about the Bur-
mese government's close re-

lations with Israel, are never-
theless willing to place faith in
U Thant personally when he
should have to deal with Arab-
Israeli or East-West disputes.
