A reiterated assurance that "the
ongoing American aid for Israel" will
not be interrupted' and the cordiality
of such an extra meeting between the
defense ministers of both countries
were viewed as a good omen for Israel.
During an interview on CBS-TV
"Face the Nation," Dayan told the
American people that guarantees by
the U.S. and the USSR or by the U.S.
alone are not the ultimate answer to
peace in the Middle East.
