President Eduard Benes today denied reports that he has changed his attitude towards Zionism and said that he still believes that the establishment of a Jewish state is the only possible just solution of the world Jewish problem.

His statement was made to Dr. Angelo Goldstein, of Tel Aviv, who was a deputy in the pre-war Czech Parliament. Benes said that he would take every opportunity to further the cause of a Jewish state and endorsed the policy being followed by Dr. Chaim Weizmann.
