Shertok Retterates Israel’s Intention to Claim Jerusalem, West Galilee and Jerusalem Link

The intention of the state of Israel to claim Western Galilee, Jerusalem and a territorial link between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem was reiterated here last night by Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe Shertok, speaking at a reception tendered him by the French Zionist Federation.

Shertok asserted that the Israeli Government will also make every effort to retain the Negev. He stressed the importance of Israel’s establishing a definite settlement with the Middle East states. “We have representatives in Moscow, Prague, Washington, etc,” he stated, “and we must have representatives in Cairo, Damascus and Bagdad–and we will have them.”
