The situation of Jews of Aden has “improved considerably,” Leon Kubowitzki, chairman of the World Jewish Congress Central Committee, said today following his return fron a one-month tour of the British protectorate.

Kubowitzki stated that as a result of discussions with responsible British and Arab leaders in Aden, arrangements have been made for dealing with the problems of emigration of Yemenite Jews to Israel. There are nearly 2,750 Jews now living in the protectorate.
