"It is our liberty that in the end is at stake and it is only through the concerted action of the industrial democracies that it will be said Kissinger in a major address at the University of Chicago. Kissinger said North Amer- ica, Western Europe and Japan must co-operate because "there can be no purely American solution." He proposed a five-point in- ternational program of co- operation to check the effects of the global energy crisis. The plan included reduced dependence on foreign oil sup- plies; dynamic development of alternative energy sources; a shoring up of economies overburdened by huge outlays paid in high oil prices to producing nations: continuing aid at least at current levels to developing countries: and meaningful dialogue with producers after bargaining power is attained through reduced consumption. The United States will play a major role in any inter- national co-operative effort, specifically seeking to reduce oil imports over the next decade to no more than one million barrels daily from seven million barrels a day, said Kissinger, Kissinger proposed an inter- national agreement to set con- sumption goals, asking that by the end of 1975 industrialized countries reduce their con- sumption of oil by three million barrels a dav and meet each year to set annual targets. He urged the industrialized bloc to make a major shift to- ward use of nuclear power, coal, gas and other energy re- sources to transform current shortages into energy sur- pluses by the 1980s. Japanese pressured TOKYO (Reuter) Japan today strove to cope with growing pressure from the United States and France for its support of their respective plans to solve the world energy problem.

The foreign ministry an- nounced today that Japan had agreed in principle to the French plan to call a confer- ence of oil-producing, oil-con- suming and non-oil-producing developing countries.
