Bucharest (Jun. 24)
King Carol of Rumania today gave his personal assurance that the Jews need not fear any of the anti-Semitic agitation in the country.
“The future of the Jews in Rumania is safe,” King Carol said in an audience which he gave to M. Chelouche, President of the Palestine-Rumania Chamber of Commerce.
The monarch also expressed his enthusiasm about Jewish achievements in Palestine.
The king’s statement is considered highly significant in view of the fact that anti-Jewish propaganda has assumed serious proportions during the last few weeks, and has reached a point where King Carol himself was warned not to be friendly towards the Jews.
The Palestine-Rumania Chamber of Commerce, which has its headquarters in Tel Aviv, is now working on plans aiming to develop a larger import of Rumanian products into Palestine. There is no direct commercial treaty between Rumania and Palestine.
