Adlai Stevenson Pessimistic on Stabilization of Arab-israel Situation

May 31, 1962
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Adlai E. Stevenson, chairman of the United States delegation here, does not think that the possibilities for stabilization of the Arab-Israeli situation in the Middle East “are particularly brilliant.” He was asked for his comment on such possibilities at a luncheon yesterday of the United Nations Correspondents Association. His reply was:

“I cannot say those possibilities are particularly brilliant. But I live in hope that some time, these people, who are sensible, will perceive the danger of a situation in which escalation is being perpetuated, a condition which is hazardous not only to the parties in the area but also to the rest of the world.”
