Eban reiterated his govern-
ment adherence to the nine-point
proposal that he outlined in the
1968 General Assembly. He also
voiced his government's support
for use of Secretary-General U
Thant's special peace envoy Dr.
Gunnar V. Jarring in negotia-
tions and in preparing an agenda
and venue for them. The for-
eign minister saw no progress
made toward peace during the
past year and blamed the Arabs
for it.

The General Assembly voted on
Saturday to consider "the situa-
tion in the Middle East" at a
plenary session without any prior
debate in a committee. The issue,

"There is no more important task

The President reiterated U. S.
support for the Security Council's
Nov. 22, 1967, resolution as charting
the path to a settlement. The UN
cease-fire resolutions "define the
minimal conditions that must pre-
vail on the ground if settlement
is to be achieved," he said. "A
peace: to he lasting, must leave
no seeds of a future war. It must
rest on a settlemtnt which both
sides have a vested interest in
maintaining," Mr. Nixon said.

Ile told the packed General
Assembly auditorium that one of
the common concerns of the in-
ternational community is the
securing of international air tra-
vel safety. "Sky piracy cannot
be ended as long as the pirates
receive asylum," he said.

"By any standards, aircraft hi-
jackings are morally, politically

and legally indefensible. The Tokyo
Convention has now been brought

Riad declared that his coun-
try would be willing to meet

with Israelis in the last stage
of any peace settlement.

He was asked if the United
Arab Republic could accept a
meeting with Israel along the
lines of the 1948-49 "Rhodes
Formula" — a settlement be-
tween the two sides worked out
by mediator Ralph Bunche on

the island of Rhodes.
In the final stage of that
negotiation, the Arab a n d
Israeli negotiators met in a
hotel room to sign the pact.
Riad replied that a Mid East
peace settlement could be thus
