President Nasser of Egypt said, during an interview on the popular British television program, “Panorama,” yesterday, that he would never consider peaceful co-existence with Israel.

Asked whether he could foresee any circumstances in which such relations with Israel might occur, he replied: “No, no!” Asked whether another war between Egypt and Israel might break out, he said “nobody knows. It might happen tomorrow.” He implied that, if it did happen, Israel would be the aggressor, as it was “10 years ago.” a reference to the 1956 Sinai campaign.
