ANNEX

Statement issued by the Brazilian Government on 1 October 1985
concerning the attack by Israel against the headquarters of the Palestine Liberation Organization in Tunis

The Brazilian Government receives with profound consternation the news about the Israeli attack against the PLO installations in Tunis, the organization which we recognize as the legitimate representative of the Palestinian people.

There is no justification for such acts, which profoundly jeopardize the efforts of the international community to achieve a just and lasting peace in the Middle East.  Apart from the suffering caused to innocent people, they serve only to increase tension, exacerbate spirits and make more distant the day when all the nations in the Middle East will be able to coexist peacefully.
