Van Zeeland Hopeful on Outcome of Negotiations for Refugee Projects

Ex-Premier Paul van Zeeland, president of the Coordinating Foundation for refugees, who has just returned from the United States, declared today in an interview with L’Independence Belge that negotiations for settlement of refugees in certain countries were well advanced and gave good hope of results. Immigration can be started immediately in the Dominican Republic and the island of Mindanao in the Philippines, he said. Van Zeeland intends to go to England and later probably to South America. He said he regarded the recent Washington conference on refugees as useful but not as offering any definite solution of the problem.
