(Studio) United States has said talks with PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) would open if organization would accept UN Resolution 242, recognizing Israel; but at UN, PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) spokesperson tells reporter Richard C. Hottelet that group refuses to accept resolution. Carter's news conference remarks with regard to PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) appear to be reassurance to Israel, but may not be case.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) President Carter describes PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) as substantial representative of Palestinians, implying it is major representative; is 1st time any American officials has used such terminology. Though President has said United States has no position on PLO representative at Geneva, it seems there is one, that organization must be represented. United States and Arabs only little apart now in stand on PLO; Carter appears ready to consider some west bank mayors as representatives of Palestinians at Geneva, apparently to appease Israelis, and Arabs consider PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) only Palestinian representative
