Download PDF for this date

President Truman today denied the–report circulated by the Arab League–that the late President Roosevelt had made certain promises concerning Palestine to King Ibn Saud, when the two met in Egypt following the Yalta conference.

Replying to a question put to him at his press conference, the President said that he had found no record of any conference at which any such statement was made, and, he added, he had looked for such a record very carefully.
