Non-communist Israel Delegates Miss Budapest Festival Because of Visa Difficulties

Download PDF for this date

Members of the Israel youth delegation, whose arrival in Hungary to attend the International Youth Festival here was delayed owing to difficulties which the delegates encountered in obtaining visas, finally succeeded in coming here, only to find that their arrival coincided with the closing down of the Festival.

The members of the delegation from Israel who arrived here earlier and presented an Israel youth concert last week are all affiliated with Communist or pro-Communist groups in the Jewish state. In all, the delegation consisted of 90 members.
