Health Ministry Attacks Egyptian Ban on Israeli Attendance at Who Meeting in Alexandria

A recent Egyptian statement that Israeli representatives would not be allowed to attend the Middle East conference of the World Health Organization, a United Nations affiliate, to be held in Alexandria this fall, was scored by a spokesman for the Israeli Health Ministry here today.

The spokesman recalled that during last spring’s international health organization conference in Rome, Israel had raised no objection to holding the next conference in Alexandria on the basis of a statement by the Egyptian representative that the Israeli representative would be allowed to attend.
