PRIME MINISTER

TRANSCRIPT OF DOORSTOP, LAKESIDE HOTEL, CANBERRA 16 SEPTEMBER 1991

E & OE - PROOF ONLY

JOURNALIST: The situation in Croatia, Prime Minister, do you think it is time for United Nations intervention?

PM: Well I've put the criterion that the Europeans ought to be able to have the chance of producing peace and if they couldn' t then w e ' d have to look at the United Nations. And I must say the evidence is pointing more and more to the difficulties, if not the impossibility of the Europeans producing that result. I have my people at the United

Nations in constant contact with other nations. I trust that if the view comes to prevail that peace can't be brought by the efforts of the Europeans, who, let me say, are obviously trying their very, very best, then I believe

the United Nations will have to look at it.
