(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A Pro-Palestine Committee will be created in Belgium and will consist of leading statesmen, as the result of Dr. Weizmann’s visit to this country.

Emile Vandervelde and the Liberal leader. Senator Spyer, have undertaken to organize the committee in the near future.

When asked by the correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency as to the progress he made with the Belgian non-Zionists, Dr. Weizmann replied that he had laid the matter before the leaders of the group, who will arrive at a decision. Their decision or that of non-Zionist groups in other countries, will not affect the creation of the Jewish Agency, which will be finally constituted next autumn. Dr. Weizmann stated.
