Mrs. Meir at UN: Attacks Arab Nations. for Spurning
World Agreements, Backs Cease Fire Continuation
UNITED NATIONS (JTA) —
Premier Golda Meir of Israel an-
nounced in the General Assembly
Wednesday that her government
is "prepared to continue the pres-
ent cease fire (in the Middle East)
without a time limit."
She urged "the leaders of the
Arab nations of the Middle East
and especially . . . the new leader-
ship of Egypt, to recognize once
and for all that the future of the
Middle East lies in peace, and this
must be achieved by Israelis and
A spokesman for the Israeli
UN Mission stressed afterward
that Mrs. Meir had used the word
"continue" in connection with the
cease fire rather than "extend."
He said "extend" carried the im-
plication of a cutoff date.
Mrs. Meir made her remarks

in the course of an address to
the 25th anniversary commem-
orative session of the General
Assembly in which she stressed
the sanctity of international
agreements. T h e 73-year-old
prime minister spoke slowly and
deliberately, never raising her
voice during the address, which
lasted a half hour.
Mrs. Meir accused Israel's Ara))
neighbors of "cynically flouting"
solemn agreements for the past
22 years, commencing with the
violation of the UN Charter by
their invasion of Israel in 1938. She
cited Arab violations of the 1949
armistice agreements, the 1957
arrangements and the cease-fire
resolutions of 1967 by embarking
on a war of attrition against Is-
"And now Egypt is undermining
the American peace initiative by
violating the cease-fire standstill
agreement," Mrs. Meir said. Her
omission of the word "flagrant"
before "violation" was the only
change in the prepared text of
Mrs. Meir's address, which was
distributed to newsmen only min-
utes before she spoke.
"It is these violations which
have halted all progress toward

commitment toward its quest,"
Mrs. Meir said.
"Agreements can only be reach-

Mrs. Meir also observed that the
question of whether or not Israelis

peace among themselves and by

intervention of any outside power."
She added that recent events in the
Mid East "have proven yet again
that resort to substitutes and al-
ternatives for direct peaceful solu-
tion of the conflict creates fertile
ground for breaches of promise
and mutual suspicion."
This appeared to be a reaffir-
mation of Israel's Insistence on
direct talks between her and
the Arab states rather than
the indirect talks favored by the
Arab states in the efforts to set-
tle the Middle East crisis. It
was also seen as a veiled rebuke
of the Soviet Union's interven-
tion with military muscle and
personnel to beef up Egyptian
military forces against Israel.
