Egypt, Iraq Agree to Ask Britain for Amnesty in Palestine

Download PDF for this date

Representatives of Egypt and Iraq, it was reliably learned here today, have agreed to ask the British Government for an amnesty for Arab prisoners in Palestine.

The agreement was reached in the course of conversations being held on the Palestine problem, but diplomatic steps toward attaining the request have been deferred until the decision has been communicated to the ex-Mufti of Jerusalem, now an exile in Baghdad.

It was reported that the conferees decided to defer action on the British White Paper until after the war.
