Peace efforts of UN envoy Gun-
nar V. Jarring, Battle said, were
"complicated by strongly - held
positions on both sides." Battle as-
serted that "quiet diplomacy,
more flexibility, and fewer tend-
entious public statements might
help the parties to bridge their
differences."
He added that "too often, both
sides seem to lose sight of the
overriding goal of a permanent
peace settlement in order to give
expression to their temporary
frustrations." He stressed that
"time is working for no one"
and that the world could not
risk periodic Arab-Israeli up-
heavals. "The first and the most
immediate threat to peace in the
area is the two-sided problem
of terrorism and acts of re-
prisal," he said
Battle commended the official
Jordanian policy and said that "the
best efforts of the Jordanian
government are often frustrated
by the unsettled conditions in Jor-
dan and the strong feeling of seg-
ments of the population that the
occupied territories must be re-
gained by any means. Terrorism
breeds reprisal raids which breed
more terrorism which breeds more
reprisal raids. The cycle can be
unending." The U.S., he said,
sought to inject "reason" by urg-
ing both sides to end hostile
actions. He expressed regret that
neither Israel nor Jordan would
accept UN military observers
along the cease-fire lines.
On Jerusalem, Battle said
"Moslem religious and historical
associations with Jerusalem are
no less binding and no less emo-
tional than those of the Jewish
people . . . We have not recognized
claims of national sovereignty
over Jerusalem. We have not ac-
cepted the view that either Israel
or Jordan has a superior claim to
the city . . . Since last summer
the U.S. has consistently main-
tained that if there is to be a satis-
factory solution for Jerusalem, the
problem must be dealt with as one
of the elements in a general peace
settlement."
